Scott said he was particularly upset because the cheating impacted the ‘build of The Block’ and the ‘integrity’ of the competition.

‘It affected the integrity of it and I think jeopardised this season,’ he remarked.

Photographic evidence is reportedly at the centre of the controversy, and the drama is set to begin this Sunday and continue for two weeks.

Scott said the show’s producers had to hold numerous meetings to decide how to handle the scandal. 

‘I have never seen anything like this with any of the TV shows I’ve worked on over the years,’ he added.

It remains unclear which team is responsible for the cheating. 

On the show this season, Love Island twins Josh and Luke Packham have previously been accused of cheating after getting a builder to help paint their house. 

The Blockheads must do all the painting themselves – a rule Josh and Luke broke during their first week on site.

Last week, Josh and Luke accused Channel Nine of fabricating their drunk storyline after they were ordered to sleep off their partying.

Josh and Luke, 27, were made to take a breathalyser test by foreman Keith after they arrived on site at 9.45am, following a night of drinks and an overnight hotel stay.

Luke told news.com.au that the episode was edited to make it look like they had an all-nighter, with the breathalyser test providing a botched result after 10 attempts.

However, The Block’s executive producer and co-creator Julian Cress hit back with a scathing response, saying that they don’t need to ‘fake anything’ on the show with the twins ‘wandering around’.

Josh and Luke admitted that they ‘didn’t know’ one of The Block’s rules that states they must sleep on site. 

‘We are who we are. We can’t really change. We bend rules. We don’t try to break them straight away. We did a Block first last night,’ they declared shortly after.
