The Block has made a rare confirmation of its next home following speculation of a Phillip Island build in 2024 -their 20th season.
“The mayor of Phillip Island recently posted we were bringing the show down there. I’m as thrilled as he is,” Executive Producer Julian Cress told TV Tonight.
“We obviously had our location previously lined up for Daylesford but that blew up. We were very, very lucky to be able to find a magnificent site in Phillip Island. So far from what I’ve seen the feedback from the audience and the fans who’ve heard that we’re going there, they’re all thrilled to bits.”
The Island Cove Villas site was first reported by the Herald Sun.
“I’m kind of glad it’s out there, in a way. It’s such an iconic location. So many Australian families have so many happy memories of going there for holidays. I just feel like it’s going to resonate extremely well with the fans of The Block.
“I’m really thrilled to bring the show down there. I mean, how can you go wrong making your 20th season on an island by the sea with penguins?
“And a Hemsworth, we should definitely get them involved,” he joked.
The Block Auction screens 7pm Sunday on Nine.
