Tonight is the night COVID-19 shuts down THE BLOCK

Last night’s victory is a distant memory as the Blockheads grapple with the developing news of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Scott Cam calls a crisis meeting and makes a difficult decision. “I’m shutting it down”. Emotion spills over. No-one ever expected this.

Keith & Dan lock the gates and an eerie calm descends. The couples return to their homes, keeping spirts up with weekly video posts. Five weeks later, Scott calls a video conference and announces that it’s safe to return if the contestants wish to come back.

Everyone rejoices and return to find a very different Block. Their homes are now structurally complete. Harry’s in the know as he sneaked back a couple of times during the shutdown…It’s not in the spirit of competition and the other couples are riled, but there’s bigger fish to fry.

It’s a double room week and there’s a lot to do.
