The Block NZ: Mike McRoberts and Sam Hayes as you've never seen them before

Newshub's Mike McRoberts and Sam Hayes starred in the latest episode of The Block NZ - sort of.

Ben and Tom imitated the Newshub Live at 6 presenters for their Block Stars act, reading out their version of a news bulletin while wearing comedy wigs and make-up.

"Kia ora and welcome to Tools Down News at 6," says Ben as Mike.

"Breaking news this evening - extreme weather warning. Local authorities are warning residents of The Block to remain in their houses for the safety of their community.  Missing shelves are bringing a thunderous front between houses 1 and 4."

"Oddly enough though, between this lightning storm, there is nothing but pleasant weather and smiles above houses 2 and 3," added Tom, as Sam.

Em reckoned Ben looked more like George Clooney - saying he was "stunning".

The act got a lot of laughs from the crowd, including from More FM hosts Jay-Jay Feeney and Jason Gunn.

The Block NZ screens on Three every Sunday at 7pm, and Monday to Wednesday at 7:30pm. It can also be viewed on ThreeNow.
