It was the biggest cheating scandal to ever rock The Block in the show’s history and  during Sunday’s finale, all was revealed.

The brothers mutually agreed to finally reveal the truth about the cheating scandal, admitting that they were aware of the schedule ahead of time – but did not themselves take the image.

‘We have one last thing we would like to get off our chest… And that is the cheating scandal. Obviously we know the truth and we haven’t been saying the truth, so we feel now is the time to say it,’ Josh confessed. 

‘This is the truth. This is what happened and it all goes back to the first week when we were doing promo.’   

Luke went on: ‘Yes, Josh and I both went into the production office during the photo shoot and we did actually visually see the schedule. 

Not me! Earlier in the episode, Tanya (pictured) continued to claim that she does not know who took the photo or sent her a text message containing it

‘We had a bit of a laugh, “Oh my gosh, look at that, that is the schedule. Don’t have a good enough memory these days to remember it off by heart”, but I did not take that photo,’ he insisted.   

Josh continued: ‘Any way, that was it. I was happy with. That I was going to go and tell Luke about it later but maybe, I think 45 minutes after that, Tanya came to me and said, “Have you gone to the toilet in the production office?” And I was like, yes, I have. And she said, “Have you seen the board?” I said yeah. 

‘She said, “I want to take a photo. Will you come and be basically on guard for me when I take the photo?” I said, yeah, of course I am happy to do that. So Tanya went in there, took the photos, and then she ended up sending them to Luke.’

'Tanya came to me and said, "Have you gone to the toilet in the production office?" And I was like, yes, I have. And she said, "Have you seen the board?" I said yeah. She said, "I want to take a photo".... She sent them to me later that night'  they explained

Luke agreed: ‘Yep, yep, she sent them to me later that night.’   

He went on: ‘I definitely never wanted to go back and take the photo myself, I never had a thought of that. I was very happy just seeing it, walking away because I know, taking the photo is pretty serious. 

‘That is when Tanya came and asked me, I was shocked and I definitely didn’t want to take it, but I wasn’t going to say, no, and then cause some sort of friction.’

Josh went on: ‘If we had come forward and said this in, you know, when it happened, would we have gained access to our pool? No. 

Josh chimed in: 'We feel as if it can't go on any longer, it has got too big. It is getting out of control. We are trying to protect Tanya and Vito because they have a family and we care about that. That weighs a lot on our conscience, but the truth the that for me to come forward and say my involvement in it, I have to implicate Tanya. It is not easy to do that'

‘When me and Ryan were getting slammed by Keith, and Tanya and Vito were refusing to come forward. 

‘They said no way in help they were going to come forward and I said to them, “Something is going to have to happen. You are going to have to come up with something and potentially, if you are not going to come forward yourself just say it was one of your trades that sent it was one of your trades that sent it to you”.’

Josh chimed in:  ‘We feel as if it can’t go on any longer, it has got too big. It is getting out of control. We are trying to protect Tanya and Vito because they have a family and we care about that. 

Claims: Tanya has continued to say that she got an anonymous text from a 'tradie' about the schedule and denied taking the photo

‘That weighs a lot on our conscience, but the truth the that for me to come forward and say my involvement in it, I have to implicate Tanya. It is not easy to do that. 

‘I don’t like doing that but I have to say the truth now, if not I am going to regret it. I don’t want to hold on to a lie, like this, for the rest of my life.’

Earlier in the episode, Tanya continued to claim that she does not know who took the photo or sent her a text message containing it.  

‘It says, “Hello Tanya I have your mum from a friend. I have The Block schedule I think it can help you.” How, I questioned him,’ she said, explaining the text she received.

‘That would be an advantage, I replied. [They] said yes, I will air drop it to you when we come back from bathroom week. Who is your friend, I asked. Don’t worry, it is a tradie secret,’ she added. 

Tanya and husband Vito found themselves at the centre of a cheating scandal early in the season after Tanya obtained a photo of the show’s production schedule on a whiteboard.

Anyone who saw the photo would have the advantage of being able to plan their specifications weeks in advance or pre-order something for a specific room.

The Gucciones and the Packham twins were each docked two points for a room reveal after the scandal was exposed.
