Block fanatic to miss first episode all in the name of love

KIM Byrne will be sitting in the audience of the Great Debate at CQUniversity tonight watching her husband, Bill Byrne.

But a small part of her will be wishing she was sitting at home on the couch watching the first episode of her favourite TV show, The Block.

  • The Block returns to the TV screen for another year of renovations with The Block Triple Threat screening tonight at 7.30pm on Channel Nine.

    Kim, 53, said she had been a huge fan of the DIY program since it started.

    "I've watched the show since the beginning and I look forward to it every year," she said.

    "I just love the concept of the show and seeing the transformation from before to after. Whenever it comes on the family have to stop me from renovating because I get so many ideas, although it did take me a year to do my bathroom so I wouldn't be any good on the show.

    "This will be one of the first times I won't be watching the first episode, I'll have to record it so I don't miss any of it."
