The Block will ‘feature a lie detector test’ during the finale after show was rocked by one of the biggest cheating scandals in reality TV history


The Block was recently rocked by one of the biggest cheating scandals in reality TV history.

And after being at the centre of the drama, contestants Josh and Luke Packham have called for a lie detector to be used during the show’s finale. 

The cheating saga began when someone allegedly broke into Scott’s office and took a photo of a whiteboard which showed the series’ filming schedule. It included the dates of each challenge, private tours and furniture consults. 

Who’s telling the truth? The Block was recently rocked by one of the biggest cheating scandals in reality TV history and after being at the centre of the drama, contestants Josh and Luke Packham have called for a lie detector to be used during the show’s finale

‘Who thinks we should all do a lie detector test at the end of the series to really find out who knew what,’ the twins posted on Instagram. 

They then added, ‘Several teams would be quite worried!’

Meanwhile, New Idea claims there is ‘growing concern’ among the teams they could be subjected to the extreme measures.    

‘There’s whispers production will force everyone to take a test to determine the truth,’ a source told the publication.

Lie detector tests usually only register fluctuations in high emotion and are inadmissible in court. 

Anyone who saw the photo from the whiteboard would have the advantage of being able to plan their specifications weeks in advance or pre-order something for a specific room.

Ronnie and Georgia brought the scandal to light this month, confirming the Packhams twins had previously shown them a photo of the schedule in question.   

After suspicion initially pointed to Josh and Luke, Tanya Guccione finally confessed to producers she was the first person to see the photo.

In the aftermath of the leaked production schedule scandal, the Gucciones and the Packhams were each docked two points for a room reveal. 

This effectively ruled both teams out of winning that challenge.

During the episode, furious host Shelley Craft said: ‘I’m upset for all of you because this is not what The Block is about. [I’ve got] this ill feeling.’
