The Block's Leah and Ash reveal major secret from auction day

The Queensland couple had a big reason to celebrate during Sunday night's episode.

The Block’s Leah and Ash have shared a surprising detail from auction day that viewers didn’t get to see on TV.

Speaking to 9Entertainment before their auction kicked off, Ash revealed that he and Leah were celebrating their sixth wedding anniversary.

“It’s actually mine and Leah’s wedding anniversary today, six years,” he remarked. “We had a little dance on our [driveway] turntable earlier.”

The 38-year-old builder also shared that the anniversary was extra special to the couple as it marked the day he found out Leah was pregnant with their daughter Marnie.

He said that Leah chose to drink non-alcoholic cocktails at their wedding and only told him at their photoshoot that she was expecting.

“So I got married and got told we were having a bub, so it was awesome,” he continued. “That was today six years ago.”


When asked if he had bought Leah a gift for their anniversary, Ash joked he was waiting to see how much money they made in the auction.

“She can have the Mustang,” he said about the car they won in the final week of the competition.

The Brisbane-based couple share three children together: Austin, 8, Marnie, 4, and Hugh, 2.

Leah and Ash's auction result

Leah and Ash didn’t end up selling their property during Sunday night’s dramatic final episode and instead decided to pass it in when it failed to reach its reserve price.

However, it was reported on Tuesday that they are set to sell 16 Charming Street for around $3.1 million. This would give the couple a profit of $130,000, which would see them tied for third place with House 1’s Kyle and Leslie.


Buxton Hampton East agent Noel Susay, who is working on the sale, told that he was “expecting a deal in the next 24 hours to 48 hours”.

“My phone blew up after the show ran on TV," he said. “On Sunday night I had six phone calls and eight emails, and the emails are still coming with more interest.”

Noel added that he has already taken two prospective buyers through the house, and both parties are now in negotiations.

“They’re buyers who were scared of coming to the show’s auctions because they thought they’d get beat by big hitters Danny and Adrian,” he remarked.
