The Block’s Josh Packham has gone rogue and blasted the editing on the Channel Nine reality show in a fiery social media post.

In a series of Instagram videos, the hunk said that he and brother Luke were made to look like they were ‘whingeing’ without the proper context of what went down – and that it almost left his twin in tears. 

The drama started on Wednesday’s episode, when the boys were forced to take down ‘screens’ in their indoor-outdoor bathroom they’d built.

They ended up using pony walls in the bathroom instead of privacy screens, which were then deemed non-compliant because the area wasn’t waterproof.

However, Josh later claimed on Instagram that their builders had been granted approval to use a different structure than a screen, which the show failed to mention.

Josh filmed the scene on his Instagram Stories and added his own commentary to explain his version of events.

‘Luke was being passive because you just know there’s no point going against the story that they’re trying to portray,’ Josh said as footage of his visibly upset brother played on screen.

‘My builders, who have 30 years’ experience and are extremely intelligent, asked the question if we could change from a screen to a blueboard and it was approved.

‘This is just a massive cover-up; it’s not fair to my builders at all. I won’t have their name dragged through the mud.’

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Channel Nine for comment.

Luke couldn’t contain his emotions after being told he’d have to remove the walls of his outdoor bath area on Wednesday’s episode of The Block.

The 28-year-old was left shattered after foreman Dan Reilly told him all three walls around the structure would have to come down after being built ‘illegally’.

‘There’s no real heartfelt saying, “Sorry, guys. This isn’t going to work.” For them it’s just a wall. For us, it’s our heart and soul of the home,’ said Luke.

He added: ‘I’m very upset. I feel like I’m getting punished right now for something that technically wasn’t even our fault.’

As he processed having to remove the walls, Luke broke down in tears and confessed he felt like he and his brother Josh, also 26, were being treated unfairly.

‘We’re just two young blokes. You know, people think they can just throw it at us,’ he explained.

‘You know, we’re going to be okay and happy to cop the hit for it and the blame… It’s very upsetting.’

Luke admitted that he and Josh had invested a lot in the outdoor bath area, describing it as ‘the hero shot on my real estate page’.

‘I care about this place a lot. Me and Josh are doing this for the first time, and we’re here to win, and this was one of our ideas,’ he said.

He added: ‘I’m pulling down the soul of my home.’

The former Love Island star admitted he was devastated at having to take down the walls after putting so much effort into the design.

‘I’m overwhelmed. I just want to get off-site. I just want to go for a drive, I just want to get away,’ he said.
