Returning to The Block: Dan and Dani.

FILMING has started on the first All-Stars edition of The Block.

To mark the 10th anniversary of the renovation show, the new series is being filmed where it all began in Bondi.

Returning are four couples who are looking for redemption after failing to win the grand prize in their respective series.

The All-Stars format was announced in this year's grand final show, which saw Brad Cranfield and Lara Welham take home more than half a million dollars.

Scott Cam returns as host.
