Say hello to The Block's new judge Marty Fox.

If you consider yourself a bit of a Blockhead, you've probably noticed a new face on the judging panel.

Early in episode one of the 19th season of The Block, fans were made aware that Neale Whitaker, was taking a step back from the show after 13 years.

"It's been an amazing honour really," said Whitaker about his time on the show.
