Block heads blitz hero’s home

Keep the tis­sues handy for this spe­cial edi­tion of Nine’s block­buster rat­ings show

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PAY TV -

IT seems Chan­nel 9 is not prepared to say farewell to its block­buster rat­ings hit The Block just yet. In­deed, Block host Scott Cam and all the con­tes­tants from the hit prop­erty se­ries will be back this week­end for a spe­cial event episode of Do­mes­tic Blitz.

The spe­cial re-teams Block host Scott Cam with Blitz host Jamie Durie – the pair worked on the Chan­nel 9 hit Back­yard Blitz be­fore Durie moved to Chan­nel 7.

The pair over­see re­turn­ing con­tes­tants from The Block to stage a house and gar­den makeover to hon­our a com­mu­nity hero, the late Michael Wil­son. The paramedic lost his life south of Syd­ney on Christ­mas Eve, 2011, when his winch line snapped dur­ing a he­li­copter res­cue of two in­jured canyon­ers.

Wil­son’s widow Kel­lie and three chil­dren, El­iza, 15, Grace 12 and Hugo, 6, re­ceive the sur­prise of their lives when Cam and Durie an­nounce all four Block cou­ples will pitch in to give their home a makeover.

The Block’s win­ners Brad Cran­field and Lara Wel­ham, run­ners-up Dan Reilly and Dani Wales, broth­ers Mike and An­drew Jones and new­ly­weds Dale and So­phie Vine are ar­ranged into new pair­ings to work on dif­fer­ent rooms in the house. They have just four days to trans­form the Wil­son home.

Also join­ing in to help are The Voice run­ner-up Dar­ren Per­ci­val, cricket leg­end Michael Slater and the first MasterChef Aus­tralia win­ner Julie Good­win. How will it all end? You’ll have to turn on to find out. Here’s a warn­ing, though: Keep a box of tis­sues handy.

Sunday, 6.30pm, Nine, NBN.

Jamie Durie and Scott Cam.
