Tensions are going to reach an all-time high on The Block this week.

According to TV Week, Harry Pavlou has a fiery clash with foreman Keith Schleiger after the IT manager decides to lower his fireplace and makes changes to storm water pipes the foreman had installed without seeking approval.

Keith then confronts Harry, 57, but the contestant refuses to apologise and threatens to walk away.

‘I don’t take to aggression. I don’t think it’s necessary… and I reacted to the way Keith spoke to me,’ Harry said.

He added: ‘I think the best approach when a situation gets heated is to take the heat from the situation by just walking away. Walk away and come back fighting.’  

However, Keith claimed ‘Harry doesn’t like authority’ and said he can’t make changes without permission.

‘I think he’s been used to renovating his own way and he doesn’t like having Dan and me telling him what to do but that just doesn’t happen in building,’ he said.

This isn’t the first time Harry has been caught up in a scandal on The Block. 

Last month, the 57-year-old was busted sneaking back onto the building site after the coronavirus pandemic temporarily shutting down production. 

Harry was caught on CCTV walking back into his renovated home three weeks into the show’s mandatory lockdown.

According to host Scott Cam, the show’s resident larrikin was caught ‘sneaking back on The Block to do a little measuring up’.  

Harry’s presence on the building site during lockdown left the show’s other teams feeling annoyed. 

‘For him to come on site and be able to measure things, possibly change things to advance himself. I think we were all a bit dirty,’ admitted Jimmy, 33.

sas australia feud explodes on radio firass dirani is confronted by rival merrick watts

Actor Firass Dirani is one of the most controversial contestants on Seven’s new show, SAS Australia, largely thanks to his various feuds with his some of his co-stars. 

And on Friday, the Underbelly star was awkwardly confronted by rival Merrick Watts live on The Kyle and Jackie O Show

Firass, 36, had slammed Merrick and claimed his co-stars tried to ‘vote him out’ on SAS Australia, before Merrick called into Kyle and Jackie and had a bit of a spat with Firass on air.

Merrick, 46, called in when they were taking listener calls and said that Firass was part of a ‘classic radio stitch up.’ 

Kyle and Jackie O then asked Merrick if he ‘has beef’ with Firass, when Merrick tried to play it cool.   

‘Why would I have a problem with Firass?’ Merrick said.

Firass then said he didn’t ‘have a problem’ either, but thought that on the show, Merrick targeted him and treated him like a child. 

‘I don’t have a problem with you Merrick, I just felt like I was a little singled out and  you were trying to baby me,’ Firass explained. 

Merrick hit back, calling Firass a ‘child.’

‘Yeah, because I’m a dad Firass and you’re a child, that’s why,’ Merrick said.

Firass then said that Merrick would have a go at him every time he tried to light a fire on the show and that they had constant spats.   

On the call the pair then tried to bury the hatchet. Merrick soon claimed that he ‘doesn’t hold grudges.’   

‘Firass, you know this, I don’t hold grudges… I had beef and then I moved on,’ Merrick said. 

Firass then said he was the same and that he’s ‘not blaming anyone.’

Before the awkward call, Firass slammed Merrick and some of his co-stars and claimed that they tried to ‘vote him out.’

He took a swipe at Merrick when he said that the radio star and comedian always tries to be the funniest person in a room, but fails miserably.  

‘He’s got this, I don’t know what kind of syndrome it is. It’s like no one else can be funny in the room, some kind of comedian thing,’ Firass claimed. 

‘I’ve heard of comedians hit and miss, but I’ve never seen one that [misses] miss, miss, miss, slip down and crash, burn.’

When asked about his feuds with Shannan Ponton and Merrick, Firass said he didn’t want to talk about them but went on to say there was ‘no love lost.’

‘I don’t want to talk about them but it’s all good, different generations, different generational curses or whatever. No love lost, but wouldn’t see eye to eye and I just think they had a construct in their head of who they think they wanted me to be,’ Firass said. 

‘When I rocked up and was fit, flamboyant and had something to say, it didn’t sit well with them.’  

He said everyone but Candice Warner wanted to vote him out on the show, after he helped her in a gruelling challenge.  

‘They actually go to Ant (Middleton, the show’s chief instructor) and they go ”we come to the conclusion we want number 11 out,” Firass said. 

The cast have become increasingly frustrated with Firass on the show, as his insubordination has resulted in group punishments.

Merrick pleaded for Firass to ‘stop gobbing off’ and start listening on Tuesday’s episode, to which the actor sarcastically retorted it wasn’t ‘his first barbecue’.

Merrick appeared on Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa on Wednesday and promised more spats with Firass. 

‘Yeah, 100 per cent, I’ve got another blow-up in there, don’t you worry about that!’ the funnyman joked about another scene with Firass to come.

However, Merrick clarified that he did not consider Firass a bad person, he was just not necessarily the best team player.

‘To be honest if Firass rang me right now and said do you want to go get coffee, or have a beer tonight, I’d go have a beer with Firass… but put it this way, I wouldn’t want to be starting a recreational basketball team with him,’ he joked.

SAS co-star Jackson Warne added that while it was frustrating paying for Firass’ actions on the show, he considers him a ‘good bloke’.

‘Firass was helping me with my bag, my water bottle, he was a good bloke all around, but he couldn’t keep his mouth shut and he doesn’t like taking orders,’ Jackson said.

Earlier this week, Firass fired back at Shannan Ponton after the former Biggest Loser trainer labelled him a ‘sociopath’ following their appearance together on SAS Australia.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday, the 37-year-old actor branded Shannan a ‘redneck’, and took aim at his Maori tattoos.

‘I find it strange where this vile aggressive labelling behaviour is coming from? I suspect there’s more prejudice against me than I imagined,’ Firass said.

‘Feels like a redneck to me. Him and his followers. That’s called a line in the sand.’ 

SAS Australia continues on Monday from 7:30pm on Channel Seven

Jamie Lee Curtis was supposed to make her return to the Halloween franchise this month, before the latest installment was delayed.

But the two-time Golden Globe winner is treating her loyal fans to a glimpse of the horror film ahead of its new premiere date.

She attempts to defeat masked serial killer Michael Myers once again in the new teaser for Halloween Kills, which dropped Thursday, almost a full year before its October 15, 2021 release.

The 61-year-old can be heard speaking over images of the season, a jack-o-lantern on a porch, children laughing and a quite neighborhood at night.

‘Next Halloween, when the sun sets and someone is alone…’ she says in the voiceover, as a pair of disembodied boot-clad feet walk through a yard, picking up the iconic white mask. She continues: ‘He kills.’

The quick teaser then offers some short glimpses of violence and gore, cut with clips of a distraught Curtis, as well as Judy Greer and Andi Matichak (who play her daughter and granddaughter, respectively). 

There’s also a glimpse of Anthony Michael Hall as an adult Tommy Doyle, one of the kids Curtis’ character Laurie babysat in the first film in 1978 (later played by Paul Rudd in 1995’s Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers).

The teaser came as part of the inaugural Blumfest, a convention hosted by the horror production company, featuring creator Jason Blum and stars of their upcoming projects. 

Blum previously told Den of Geek in February: ‘I just saw Halloween Kills. It was SO good. So good. It’s intense. It’s huge. It really feels really big.’

Another teaser dropped back in July, showing Curtis, Greer and Matichak in the bed of a truck, driving away from her burning house, immediately after the climactic end of the previous film.

Although filming completed last November in Wilmington, North Carolina before COVID-19 forced Hollywood into lockdown, the premiere was delayed in July. 

Curtis last starred in Blumhouse’s Halloween in 2018, a direct sequel of the first film co-written and directed by David Gordon Green, ignoring the seven other installments in the franchise.

She originated the role of final girl Laurie Strode in John Carpenter’s original 1978 film, before returning for Halloween II (1981).

The daughter of OG scream queen Janet Leigh played a babysitter being stalked by an escaped serial killer in a white mask, who hunts teenage girls on Halloween night.   

She later revived the role for Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998) and Halloween Resurrection (2002), both of which ignoring the sequels after Halloween II.

In addition to Halloween Kills, Curtis has also signed on for 2022’s Halloween Ends, the definitive conclusion of the slasher franchise.

Curtis recently spoke with fellow final girl Neve Campbell in a conversation for Variety, in which she revealed how Green got her to return to the franchise.

She told Campbell: ‘My phone rang, I was on vacation with my husband in the mountains. The phone rang, and it was my friend/godson/knucklehead Jake Gyllenhaal, saying, “Hey, my friend David Gordon Green would like to talk to you about a Halloween movie.” 

‘I was like, last thing in the world I thought I would ever do again. Last thing in my mind. So, I said, “Sure.” And he called… he was trying to explain to me. I said, “You know what, David? Just send it to me. I’ll read it. I’ll call you tomorrow.

‘And I saw exactly what they were trying to do, the homage, the “homage-iness” of it all. And yet, its own very unique, terrifying take on it all. Because trauma, it is generational, it is everlasting. I loved that they were gonna honor the fact that what happened to somebody 40 years before still had an effect.’
