Speaking on his Hit Network radio show Hughesy and Kate yesterday, the comedian demanded an apology from property experts who criticised the $3 million he dropped on Elyse Knowles and Josh Barker’s five-bedroom home.
“I copped so much flak for that,” he said, speaking to his co-host Kate Langbroek. “It was ridiculous and it’s gone on and on and on.”
“A lot of experts weighed into my purchase… there are articles that have been written all year having a go at me,” he added.
But despite being told by experts that he paid almost $500,000 more than he should have for The Block property, Hughesy is certain the critics got it wrong.
“Sticks and Wombat’s House got sold the other day… for $180,000 more than it sold for on the TV less than a year ago,” he said on air.
“They got $2.83 million on the weekend and with my house being worth more than theirs, because it’s a better house in a better position, Katie, I would like an apology,” he added.
