The Block’s Scott Cam slams contestants Elle Ferguson and fiancé Joel Patfull for quitting the show after two days: ‘It’s unAustralian!’

The Block host Scott Cam has come out swinging against two contestants who quit the show after just two days. 

Influencer Elle Ferguson and her footy star fiancé Joel Patfull left the renovation competition 48 hours into filming. 

‘We had a 48 hour challenge to choose the house that you get and they scarpered after 48 hours. It’s something that’s never happened before,’ Scott told TV Tonight during his appearance at a Logies brunch on Monday.

‘45,000 people applied to be on The Block and win life-changing money. These guys got on and they just couldn’t handle the pace after 48 hours. 

‘Which to me is a bit unAustralian! Have a go! It’s p**s poor,’ the 59-year-old added.   

According to The Daily Telegraph, the couple made the difficult decision to leave after Joel’s mother Trish fractured her neck during a fall at her home in Adelaide.

The publication reported she potentially had broken her coccyx and fractured her wrist. 

Following their exit, Elle, 36, shared a telling picture of the pair’s suitcases at Melbourne Airport, captioned: ‘Wherever you are in the world, whatever you are doing, family always comes first.’ 

She also shared a black-and-white image of her partner Joel, 37, sitting with their luggage, as they prepared to catch a flight to Adelaide.

A Channel Nine spokesperson confirmed the pair’s exit to Daily Mail Australia, saying: ‘Over the weekend, we were surprised to have one of our new contestant teams depart The Block a few days into filming for the upcoming season.

‘We wish them all the best for the future and we’re excited to cast two new Aussies for the opportunity of a lifetime on The Block. The Block Tree Change will air as scheduled later this year.’
