‘I’m tearing down the soul of my house’: The Block’s Luke Packham bursts into tears after being told to remove the walls from his outdoor pool










Luke Packham couldn’t contain his emotions after being told to remove the walls of his outdoor pool in Wednesday’s episode of The Block.

The 26-year-old was left shattered after foreman Dan Reilly told him that all three walls around the building would have to be demolished after it was “illegally” built.

“There’s no sincere comment, ‘Sorry, guys. This will not work.’ To them it’s just a wall. For us, it’s our heart and soul of the house,” Luke said.

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

As he came to terms with having to remove the walls, Luke burst into tears and confessed that he felt he and his brother Josh, also 26, were being treated unfairly.

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

“You know, we’ll be fine and we’ll take the hit and the blame… It’s very disturbing.”

Luke admitted that he and Josh had invested heavily in the outdoor bath space, describing it as “the hero who shot my real estate page.”

“I care a lot about this place. Josh and I 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 house.”

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

‘I am overwhelmed. I just want to go off site. I just want to take a ride, I just want to get out,” he said.
