“I felt terrible!” Lego Master’s Hamish Blake admits to causing trouble on show
Hamish Blake is well known for stirring up trouble and making those around him laugh. However, the star has taken things to a whole new level as he hosts Lego Masters.
He had his sights set on 71-year-old grandmother Lyn, who joined the series in a team with her grandson Matt, 17.
Lyn told TV WEEK that she loved Blake.
"He's always been my favourite," Lyn explained.
"I've always thought he's rather funny and his humour is similar to mine, but he didn't give me time to act starstruck because he started teasing me straight away!"
Blake was quick to admit his part in stirring the pot.
"Lyn was a bit concerned about being on a reality show," he confessed.
"So I spent much of my time trying to mess with her during filming. I'd go up to her and say, 'Look, the producers just want you to shove someone and create some drama.'
"She got so stressed – I felt terrible!" he laughs.
However, things were not meant to be for the grandmother-and-grandson duo as they were eliminated on last night’s episode of Lego Masters.

While things didn’t go as planned for the duo, Blake is still beside himself with joy at landing the gig as host of the show.
"It's crazy," he gushes. "I wish I could time-travel, go back in time and have one quick conversation with my nine-year-old self!"
LEGO Masters airs Sunday at 7pm and Monday to Tuesday at 7:30pm on Channel 9.
