House Rules Stars Sean And Ella Reveal Some Devastating News

Tasmanian House Rules couple Sean and Ella have revealed the show was the least of their worries during filming.

Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph, Ella said that she had learnt her stepfather had been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer just months before filming.

The 24-year-old said that her stepdad Mark Webb was given six months to live over 18 months ago and is still working as a sheep farmer in Tasmania.

Speaking of her decision to participate in House Rules, despite his diagnosis, Ella said: “He was diagnosed before we went on the show. It was hard leaving him. You want to be around and make sure everything’s OK, it was hard going away for such a huge chunk of time.”

"We’ve got a very supportive family and my stepdad’s got a good outlook, he’s come a long way.

“He looks healthier than me!”

House Rules continues tonight on Channel 7 at 7:30PM.
