There is a lot of camaraderie and Gizzy-style banter coming from one of the houses on The Block NZ.

The new season of the show begins tomorrow at 7pm on Three.

Gisborne couple Stu Watts and Amy Moore will represent this region as Team Yellow — and they promise it will not be short of drama.

The first episode gives viewers a chance to meet the teams and see where in Auckland the four couples are renovating.

Speaking from Auckland, Amy said being on The Block NZ, as opposed to watching it at home, was more intense than she imagined.

“But also more rewarding as well. The highs are higher and the lows are lower than we expected.”

“Hold on to your seats, it’s going to be one hell of ride,” said Stu.

It is a dream come true for this DIY couple — Stu Watts is a plumber and all-round handyman, while beauty therapist Amy has an eye for design.

“It’s such an amazing time but obviously I’ve left my daughter and Stu has left his two kids in Gisborne. We really miss them, and our family and friends.

We can’t wait to come home and see everyone. But we are working our hardest to make them and everyone in Gisborne proud.”

Stu promises plenty of fun, humour and a bit of banter.

Giving Team Yellow the edge are a couple of things, says Amy.

“We’ve got a secret weapon on our team, Dave Wallace, who is honestly going to make everything more fun and he is just so talented.”

“He’s a Blockaholic,” says Stu, who says Dave knows everything that has happened from previous series.

At 39 and 46, Amy and Stu are the oldest couple ever on The Block NZ — which they reckon gives them an edge.

“The oldest person under us is 25. We’ve got at least 15 years on all of them — that’s like a whole generation.

“They are all great people but there is a divide with life experience,” says Amy.

To give them good-old Gisborne support, make sure you “like” Team Yellow on Facebook. Amy and Stu say they want Gizzy on the journey with them, and will share clips and photos of the series on their Facebook page.

Even if they do not win a lot of money at the end, it does not bother them. They say the experience they are having is enough to take away from this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
