There's no doubt that Elyse Knowles has some serious skills when it comes to home renovation. Although, while she may be tearing it up on The Block with her boyfriend, Josh Barker, this whole TV gig hasn't been so easy for her. 

In a recent interview with the Daily Telegraph, Elyse revealed that she had to undergo speech therapy before appearing on the hit TV series. 

The model and home-reno guru opened up and admitted that she simply didn't think she had the confidence.

"If you are not confident talking in front of crowds, it can really get to you.

"Confidence is key and The Block gave me so much experience with interviews, talking in front of cameras and being live and present, I value that so much." 

Since facing her fears and gaining the confidence necessary, the 24-year-old has revealed that she's even considering a career in TV! 

We're so proud of Elyse for getting out there and conquering her nerves! Go girl!
