The Block: Dave Hughes wears face mask and inspects properties

Dave Hughes famously purchased Elyse Knowles and Josh Barker’s five-bedroom home on The Block back in 2017, for $3.06million. 

And, it appears that the comedian and radio star could be looking to splash out on another property from the hit Channel Nine renovation show. 

On Friday, the 49-year-old was spotted inspecting the Melbourne homes, that are expected to fetch around $3.2 – 3.4million at Saturday’s auction.

Putting safety first, Dave wore a black and white gingham face mask, while touring the home amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  

The radio presenter looked stylish in a deep mauve checked shirt, which he paired with green pants and brown boots. 

He completed the look with a watch, as he carried a pair of glasses and kept his silver locks scruffy.

He told Stellar magazine in February 2018 he was ‘annoyed’ after the bank valued the property at ‘much less’ than the hefty $3million he’d paid.

‘I went to get a bank loan the other day and they haven’t valued it the same as I paid for it, which is fine, but annoying because there were five bidders,’ he said.

The Block auctions will air Sunday at 7pm on Channel Nine.
