Jimmy and Tam Wilkins have revealed that they are now living in a caravan –  after becoming The Block‘s first ever millionaires when they won last year’s season.

Speaking to Cliffo and Gabi on Hit Queensland, the pair revealed they only received their $966,000 prize money recently, after a fake bidder threw their win into turmoil.

‘We only just got it about two months ago, so it was a massive roller coaster of whether we were going to get it, whether the house was going to sell,’ Jimmy said.

‘So it was a very hard time for us mentally.’

‘Nine were absolutely incredible,’ Tam explained.

‘We are so grateful for everything they have done through this whole process.

‘We did get the money that we won on auction day. They didn’t have to do that, they did it out of goodwill’.
