Filming was suspended for The Block in late March for six weeks.

Additional safety precautions were put in place to protect everybody on set from daily temperature checks to hand sanitisers readily available.  

Meanwhile, in an extended trailer for Monday night’s program, Tash already reached breaking point, wiping tears from her face. 

The 32-year-old, who appeared overwhelmed by figures and paperwork, was comforted by her father Harry, 57, who is competing on the show alongside her.

‘I can’t wrap it around in my head, I don’t understand it!’ an overwhelmed Tash told her father.

‘I know it’s a lot,’ he said, attempting to calm her down. 

Harry, who shares Tash with Melbourne’s celebrity hairdresser Andrea Pavlou, said in a piece to camera that no parent would want to see ‘their child go through that’. 

The father and daughter duo are competing on the show alongside couples Sarah and George, Daniel and Jade, Luke and Jasmin, and Jimmy and Tam.
