They recently won more than $500,000 on a reality show, but The Block winners Sara Tumino and Hayden Vale may already have their sights set on more reality TV success.

The couple have been rumoured to be among the celebrities entering the South African jungle this year for I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

And Sara isn't hosing down the possibility they'll compete.

"We'd do it if the timing was right. It'd be quite funny," Sara, 33, tells TV WEEK.

"But they'd have to have us both on there. It would be about conquering your fears. The only thing that'd get me is the cockroaches!"

Timing is certainly a factor, given the couple are expecting a baby boy in April.

For now, Hayden says their growing family is their priority, but that they're working on some exciting new projects.

"I want to enrol in an interior-decorating course," Sara says.

"To have that kind of backing behind me would be great."

The pair became famous for their on-air blow-ups and for threatening to quit the show. Despite being crowned champions, does Sara have any regrets about her tumultuous time on the show?

"I don't have any regrets, but it was really tough for us," she admits.

"We were put through a lot of hardship, and we got hammered online. But it all paid off in the end. If you meet us in real life, we're completely different people to how we were portrayed on screen."

Hayden, 45, adds, "Going on the show looks way easier than it actually is. In reality, it was really tough – mentally, physically and emotionally. It's tough on your relationship, and on your family in the background.

"But it's the game you play to win – and fortunately we won!"
