Despite the ruckus, it’s understood that the transgressors have not been threatened with legal action — yet.

However, they’ve been ‘gently reminded’ that such a step is well within the rights of the production team, should they choose to enforce the full extent of their contracts.

Daily Mail Australia understands that several cast members have been stubborn with their response to the network and refused to play ball.

Nine will ultimately have the last laugh, with invites to the prestigious Logie Awards yet to be formally handed out by the network.

Surprisingly, villains Jack Dunkley, and Tori Adams, Golden couple Jade Pywell and Ridge Barredo and Jayden Eynaud were some of the few participants yet to break the social media ban.

Channel Nine are expected to hand the cast back their access next month.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Channel Nine for comment.
