Tom was hammering into the floor of their house when he came across what looked like asbestos.
The pair were demolishing their guest bedroom and were nearly completed when Tom found the deadly substance.
“I literally had a small square left to smash, and I hit it with the sledgehammer and I found some asbestos underneath it.
"As soon as I saw it, I’m like: Oh god, here we go, more delays,” he lamented.
According to Healthdirect Australia, Asbestos is a group of minerals that can cause serious disease, and irritate people’s lungs. It was commonly used in Australia as fireproofing and insulation, and the substance was banned in Australia in 2003.
The contestants went straight to foremen Keith and Dan to report their discovery, and their house was shut down for the day. A team of experts later arrived at the house to remove the dangerous mineral.
“They shut our house down, and rightly so — asbestos is very dangerous,” Tom said.
House One put their tools down for the entire day, with the couple not knowing how long they’d be out of action for.
While Sarah-Jane used her time wisely and worked on designing their kitchen, Tom didn’t know what to do. Tom made lots of ‘house calls’, fed horses some carrots and spent lots of time with the foremen.
After six hours, the foremen were satisfied that the asbestos had been removed, and House One was able to resume work.
Elle Ferguson's savage move
Appearing on Weekend Today, host Belinda Russell asked Sarah-Jane if she had any contact with Elle and Joel.
"No, I got blocked. She blocked me on Instagram," Sarah-Jane quickly responded. "I went to show someone her (page) the other day, because they were like, ‘Who is this person?’
"And then I was like, ‘Oh my god, I’ve made it, I’ve made it in the world, a celebrity has blocked me’."
She also added that she wasn't surprised when she found out Elle and Joel left the show so early, adding, "I could tell that they were unhappy after judging."
"You don’t really spend much time (together) before that, you’re doing the challenge, so you’re busy. But at the judging, they seemed not too happy, there were a few little sentences that I heard and I thought, ‘Oh gosh' ... So no, I wasn’t surprised when they left," she said.
