The Block NZ is back and the list of teams has been announced.

South Auckland's Maree, 27, and James, 28, are high school sweethearts who have been together for 13 years. They will be representing Team Yellow.

From Christchurch comes Quinn, 26, and Ben, 30, who will be on Team Orange. They say they have zero experience with renovating homes (good start!). 

Feilding husband and wife duo Jo, 34, and Damo, 36, are on Team Blue.

And from Auckland's west coast is Alex, 29, and Corban, 32: they've been married for a year-and-a-half and live on beautiful Muriwai Beach. 

The teams will join hosts Mark Richardson and Shannon Ryan alongside new judges Shelley Ferguson and Mark Gascoigne.

Team Blue's Jo and Damo will join the others renovating houses in Point Chevalier, Auckland.

The couple moved to Feilding about three years ago for Damo Neal to advance his career with the police.

Jo Neal previously worked as a marketing assistant in Palmerston North and more recently set up her own home furnishing business.

Feilding friend Tania Osborne said she was excited for her friends and could not wait to watch their progress.

"I am really proud of them. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Jo has a really good design flair and Daimon seems pretty handy around the home."
