Another winning room for the couple was their stunning grey bathroom, where they took home first place in the first week. 

The pair – who are the youngest competitors to ever appear on the show – took a risk placing a large white and round bathtub in the area. 

The pair narrowly won the week, beating rivals Sticks and Wombat by just half a point. 

Judge Darren Palmer called Josh and Elyse’s space was ‘at a professional level’.

Josh and Elyse also impressed the judges and won kitchen week. 

The pair created a large butler’s pantry and took a gamble by changing the orientation of their island bench, separating them from their rivals. 

The pair scored 28.5 points for the space, which featured stunning charcoal and white cupboards and white marble-look benches. 

There was plenty of drama surround their kitchen week win, with Sarah and Jason dobbing in the pair’s non-compliant kitchen.

Shocking their co-stars, Josh and Elyse lost points and were told that Jason and Sarah – who came second that week – were now tied with them for first place for their kitchen, and were also given $10,000. 

Their gas stove top was too close to the Caesarstone splash back according to building and safety regulations and was something the judges overlooked.

Another winning space for the pair was their open-plan backyard, which the judges said would be perfect for all types of families. 

The couple scored full marks – 30 out of 30 – and features a pool, a grass area, a deck, and BBQ.
