The Block’s Sara Vale threatened to quit Channel Nine’s renovation show on Sunday night after her $75,000 bathroom was given the lowest score for the week.
And Sara, 31, confessed to getting emotional as she watched her explosive, expletive-ridden rant from The Gatwick hotel for the first time.
The Sydney mother gripped her husband Hayden’s hand tightly while recalling her reaction to the intense meltdown on KIIS FM’s Kyle And Jackie ‘O’ show on Tuesday.

‘Watching it back on the weekend was really tough. I could feel all the emotions that I felt on the actual episode and you only saw five minutes of it – it wasn’t the full intensity,’ she said of the televised tirade.
In her explosive on-air walkout, Sara tore off her microphone and declared: ‘I’m not f***ing coming back. Dead f***ing set I’m f**king over this.’
‘I don’t want to do this anymore, I’m over it. F**k this I’m going mate,’ she raged, adding that signing up to The Block was the ‘biggest mistake of my entire life’.
The departure came after Sara and Hayden claimed they were humiliated by coming last in the week’s challenge despite delivering the most expensive bathroom in the show’s history.

Reality TV meltdown: After the judges revealed their scores, Sara screamed, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me? This is f**king embarrassing. We put our heart and soul into that!’
‘I think we started on such a high and just excited to get into The Block and then week by week it was a slow demise and a barrage of insults,’ she told the radio hosts.
Providing reasons behind her meltdown, Sara added: ‘It was the insults that hit home and that coupled with stress, fatigue, pressure from The Block and missing our little one.’
She claimed it was ‘absolutely heartbreaking’ being away from her daughter Harlow, now two, and said: ‘I felt every single emotion to the point I was actually crying watching that episode.’
‘A lot of people are saying to us “you should have known what you’re getting into on The Block”, but well actually unless you’ve been in that situation, you’ve got no idea!’
Too harsh? Judges Neale Whitaker (left), Shaynna Blaze (centre) and John McGrath (right) were unimpressed by Sara and Hayden’s efforts and subsequently, the couple finished last

During Sara’s spat with producers she stood up from the gutter and cried out repeatedly: ‘It’s embarrassing! It’s embarrassing! It’s f***ing embarrassing!’
Despite threatening to quit, it appears the couple have chosen to stay on the show.
The Block airs on Sunday nights from 7pm and Monday to Wednesday nights from 7.30pm on Channel Nine
