Speaking to New Idea, Toad claimed Mel and Dave ‘didn’t play fair,’ hinting they had a big argument as they finalised renovations.

‘There are House Rules and Mel and Dave’s rules,’ Toad said.
‘They would bend the rules to try and make it suit themselves, they didn’t play fair at times.’
He added: ‘Mandy and I played fair, we tried to think about the homeowner, and we got the better results.’

Having his say: House Rules star and expert Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen (pictured) this week told New Idea he wasn’t sure who would make the grand final at the start of the show, saying there weren’t any clear ‘frontrunners’
House Rules star and expert Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen this week told New Idea he wasn’t sure who would make the grand final at the start of the show, saying there weren’t any clear ‘frontrunners.’
The outspoken personality meanwhile told Now To Love this week, that he was less than impressed by the homes being offered for renovation this series.
‘It’s about the same suburban boxes,’ the 53-year-old said.
Laurence went on to say he hoped to see, ‘a lot more heritage on the show, I’d like to see more city centre solutions’.
He also cuttingly commented that the houses being renovated resemble the sets on long-running soap opera Home and Away.
The stylist tells the publication he’d like to see: ‘Less of the cookie-cutter, mid-century modern Home and Away architecture.’
