Last week it was announced that filming for The Block 2022 had been delayed due to a positive COVID-19 result, with Neighbours star Sharon Johal and Ankur Dogra set to join the cast when filming resumed.
Earlier this week, rumours had circled that influencer Elle Ferguson would also be joining the cast of The Block: Tree Change. The Daily Telegraph Confidential has officially confirmed that Elle will be joining the cast alongside her partner Joel Patfull.
Elle is the founder of self-tanning brand ELLE EFFECT and boasts almost 700k followers on Instagram. Her partner Joel is also well known, having played AFL for GWS until his retirement in 2016.
It seems that producers may be trying to replicate a winning formula – with The Block 2017 smashing ratings due in part to well-loved couple Josh Barker and Elyse Knowles.
Filming officially began on-site yesterday after the significant delays, with contestants beginning on their House Decider Challenge.
