I just went to that page and I don’t see any ads either.

Here is a screenshot as requested. The two ads that are circled would previously appear as white blocks on the screen.

I see where you are showing an ad. Mine doesn’t.

It turns out that my block tracker & ads setting was set to Block Trackers & Ads. I changed it to Aggressively Block Trackers & Ads and that fixed the problem. Not sure why it suddenly stopped working after so long. All fixed now.
