The Block’s Steve O’Donnell and Chantelle Ford announced over the weekend on their shared Facebook page that they have chosen to go their separate ways – 14 months after winning the show together.
In the message to their fans, they explained that their separation is a mutual one.
‘We’ve had an incredible 3.5+ years together and remain the best of mates, but both agree that we are better off as friends. There’s no drama, no scandal, we’re just two people with an enormous amount of respect for each other who, together, made this difficult decision..’
During their time on the show in 2014, cracks began to show in their relationship as the weeks in the competition progressed with the pair at one point having to deny breakup rumours.
