Australia’s longest running reality program will return in 2018 for its 14th series. Fifteen years since the record-breaking first instalment in 2003, The Block has cemented itself as a television phenomenon that remains as popular as ever.
In 2018, 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.
Next year’s contestants will be tasked with transforming the Gatwick to its former glory and potentially winning a life-changing sum of money.
The Block is a Nine production in conjunction with Cavalier Television
