The Block on road to meet show fans

DAN and Dani from reality renovation show The Block stopped in Gympie on Friday on their way down the east coast of Australia for the Mitre10-sponsored tour.

The Gympie Times caught the couple while they were helping a Dulux rep find the new name for a colour they used in one of their bedrooms.

The purpose of the tour is to give fans an opportunity to meet The Block contestants in a less chaotic way than the open house inspections. Dan and Dani began the tour in Cairns about a week ago and have visited about 16 Mitre 10 stores on their way south.

Of their time on the show?

"We got through it," Dani said. "It was definitely a test.

"I've heard shows like these can be relationship enders, but we got through it and we are probably stronger for it."
