The Block 2022
Ankur & Sharon
It’s safe to say that out of all our couples, Ankur and Sharon have the least experience when it comes to building a house. Regulars on Melbourne’s glamorous social scene, Ankur and Sharon are the first to admit that a construction site is something very foreign to them.
Sharon might already be known to many fans of The Block, as she played the role of Dipi Rebecchi for four years on TV show; Neighbours. Fierce and unafraid to express her opinions, she’ll be no shrinking violet among her new neighbours. A likeable accountant, Ankur admits The Block is something so incredibly foreign to him that this is actually part of its appeal. Melbourne’s multiple lockdowns also inspired him to have a crack at The Block.
Proud Australians of Indian heritage, they want to be positive role models for their community on this series. They are set to provide lots of colour and movement to The Block, and they wouldn't have it any other way.
“We are stressing bullets,” Sharon said. “But hard work we are not scared of.”

Week 1: Bathroom
The judges weren't loving Ankur & Sharon's room this week...
“I found the room a little theatrical, and claustrophobic – the nib wall makes it feel so small and confined.” - Neale Whitaker
“I actually loved the moody, sultry feel of the room, but the wall tile is too heavy industrial and doesn’t work with the marble.” - Darren Palmer
“The tile choice gives it too much of a contemporary environment. I’m disappointed in the mix of elements from different eras.” - Shaynna Blaze
Room score 20.5/30!
