A cheating scandal is currently rocking Channel 7’s House Rules and it’s casting doubt on how much renovating the teams actually do.

According to the neighbours of Adelaide couple Lisa and Andy, some teams have continued to work despite the renovation siren being sounded at the close of each week.

‘Contestants were still running in with homewares and decorations 20 minutes after we heard the buzzer go off on set. It’s disappointing to witness,’ a local told Woman’s Day on Monday.  

‘Pretty much straight after that, the contestants had to leave the site to record their [post-reno interviews], but I saw countless tradies still working and adding fixtures.’

Channel 7 is yet to comment on the rumours.
