One person who will be rubbing his hands in glee is My Kitchen Rules ‘villain’ Josh Bonwick. 

Just last month the cheeky 25-year-old took a swipe at House Rules, poking fun at the renovation show’s disappointing ratings.

In a since-deleted tweet, Josh wrote: ‘What does House Rules and Apple’s T&C’s [terms and conditions] have in common? No one’s viewed it.’ 

House Rules returns on Sunday at 7pm on Channel Seven
