‘Obviously I wish Joel and Elle success in the future. It’s just that they created a fair bit of chaos for us here in the first 48 hours. 

‘The show … we put a lot of time and money into the start of our show and then we had to rejig the whole thing … the whole promos had to be re-shot.’ 

According to news.com, he finished his rant by saying he was speaking ‘from the heart’, claiming the pair caused ‘a lot of angst’ for departing the way they did.

Scott first let loose on Elle and Joel during an interview with TV Tonight at a Logies brunch last Monday. 

‘We had a 48 hour challenge to choose the house that you get and they scarpered after 48 hours. It’s something that’s never happened before,’ he said at the time. 

‘45,000 people applied to be on The Block and win life-changing money. These guys got on and they just couldn’t handle the pace after 48 hours.  

‘Which to me is a bit unAustralian! Have a go! It’s p**s poor,’ he finished. 

According to The Daily Telegraph, the couple made the difficult decision to leave after Joel’s mother Trish fractured her neck during a fall at her home in Adelaide.  

The publication reported she potentially had broken her coccyx and fractured her wrist.

‘We wish them all the best for the future and we’re excited to cast two new Aussies for the opportunity of a lifetime on The Block. The Block Tree Change will air as scheduled later this year.’ 

The couple were seen arriving at the show’s building site in Gisborne, in the Macedon Ranges, on day one of filming.

Joel retired from AFL in 2016 after 220 games for the Brisbane Lions and GWS Giants.
