Mark explained that they had underestimated the price of an invoice for their renovation in St Kilda.

& # 39; We had a few bills that came in where we had an estimate of the price, but it came in and it was like, "Whoa, that would be eight thousand and it came in at around 15," he said.

Radio presenter Lawrence Mooney then asked: & Something is coming in the construction sector below budget? & # 39;

& # 39; Well no, apparently not. Certainly not for me, & # 39; Mark replied, adding that he & # 39; was & # 39; was told that they had spent too much money.

Fortunately for the couple, they were able to find a solution with the help of Scott Cam and The Block & # 39; s sponsors, SunCorp, and they were back on track.

& # 39; We have found a way to raise money and we have returned to the game, & # 39; Mitch added.

In Monday's episode of The Block, front runners Mitch and Mark were shocked when they discovered that they could not pay their bills.

Reflecting on how he messed up the budget, Mark said: & # 39; I was ashamed that I didn't have a handle on it, just as I thought I had a handle on it. & # 39;

The couple were forced to send their traders home because they could not afford to pay them, which led to a grin from their jealous rivals, Tess and Luke.

& # 39; Welcome to the farmer! & # 39 ;: Meanwhile, their rival Tess (rightly, with partner Luke) declared smug: & # 39; It is time to taste how poor it feels & # 39;
