Former Towie star Mark Wright has been sharing glimpses of his soon-to-be new home in Essex.

The 34-year-old has been getting hands on and helping build his and wife Michelle Keegan's £1.3million dream.

The couple have set up an Instagram account dedicated entirely to the house build, called Wrighty Home.

Mark, who is a presenter on Heart Radio and professional footballer, has recently revealed plans to install a new sunken fire pit outside his new home.

He has also shared a comical video of him using a digger to pull down a small fence, which was captioned with "If you want something done properly, do it yourself."

He later gets much heavier machinery to get the rest of the fence down.

It is not known when the house will be finished but recent pictures shared on the Instagram account shows work has begun on the second floor of the building.

Mark has shared a CGI image of what his new home will look like; posting it alongside a photo of the previous home based on the site before.

He wrote: “Here’s the lovely house that we purchased back in 2019 vs what we are hoping to create.


“It’s been a long process so far and still a long way to go but sooner or later we will have the house, we could have only ever dreamed of.

“Thanks to @tidyworkstudio for creating the CGI image of our home, to help us see what we have chosen come to life.

“Great job.”
