The Block’s Sharon Johal opens up about the heartbreaking ‘late-term miscarriage’ she suffered prior to signing up for the show

The Block stars Sharon Johal and Ankur Dogra have revealed they suffered a late-term miscarriage before applying for the Channel Nine show last year.

The controversial couple said signing up for the televised renovation project was a way to challenge themselves and cope with the heartbreaking loss.

‘We had a pretty rough time, we went through a personal issue. We had a late-term miscarriage, so that really threw us for a six,’ Ankur told Yahoo Lifestyle.

He added: ‘We wanted to do something to get out of our comfort zone. Sharon and I definitely have an interest in renovating.’

Sharon said the couple thought The Block would be a fun experience.

‘It was like an adventure. After Covid, we did the whole “f**k it” when it came to anything,’ she said.

Although they were initially optimistic about appearing on the show, Sharon and Ankur have since criticised how they were portrayed.

‘They’re just highlighting what they want to highlight,’ Sharon said of the producers.

‘[They are] always referring to me as “actress Sharon” instead of just Sharon. [They] don’t go “social worker Sarah-Jane”. It’s annoying.’

The former Neighbours star said the couple was getting ‘annoyed with the set-ups and the storylines’ as they head into the series auction day.
