Australia’s longest running reality program returns for its 14th season.
Scott Cam will unleash a block challenge like no other – the infamous Gatwick Hotel in beachside St Kilda in Melbourne. With its grand sweeping staircase, high ceilings and historic architecture, it was purpose-built 80 years ago as a luxurious hotel. But for the past 50 years it has provided budget accommodation to the needy and vulnerable.
The Block airs Sunday – Wednesday on Channel 9 and 9Now.
