Tanya has made headlines in the past few weeks following The Block’s infamous cheating scandal.

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. 

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

The purple-haired star told Sydney’s Confidential that the scandal has had a rough impact on her life.

‘I guess the hard part for me is the trolling and people mentioning my children and contacting my friends and family,’ she said.

“That has been really difficult to go through and it is not OK.’ 

Tanya went on to say that she isn’t the only one involved and the contestants should undergo a lie detector test to reveal the truth.  

‘We should all take a lie-detector test and see what happens then. It is very difficult to cop it all when you know that there is more to it,’ she said.

This month, Tanya hit back at producers after having two points docked from her and husband Vito’s latest room reveal due to their involvement in a cheating scandal.

At the time, she said that while she was ‘super apologetic’ for using a leaked photo of the show’s production schedule to gain an unfair advantage. 

She stressed, however, that she and Vito were not the only cheaters in the competition which certainly ruffled some feathers.
