The combined house of Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan is undergoing major renovations.
The former Towie star, 36, owns an Essex property with wife Michelle, 36, and the couple aren’t afraid to flaunt it.
Michelle recently posted photos of her husband topless and working in the garden in what we can only characterise as a complete thirst trap post, despite the fact that they’ve been married for eight years.
Mark has now released an update on the stunning makeover of their megamansion, indicating that all of their hard work topless in the yard is paying off.
He posted a video of a big truck driving into their driveway, loaded to the brim with all kinds of plants eager to settle in Essex with Michelle and Mark.
And the actor was as ecstatic about it as a kid on Christmas morning – literally, as he recorded workers moving the plants to their new home to the dulcet tones of Santa Claus is Coming To Town (it’s still August, Mark!)
It comes after the reality star excitedly displayed his newly planted grass, describing it as ‘the most joyful day I’ve had in six weeks.’
In a video showing their expansive garden nestled in the countryside, he was fizzing with excitement as he declared: ‘The grass is growing. I cannot tell you how much of a buzz this is.’
He added that they hadn’t had any grass in the garden since the house became their home, owing to all the construction done surrounding it and trampling everything that tried to grow there.
The video provides a day-by-day update of the grass growing, and on day six, a lovely carpet of grass can be seen covering the field, with Mark grinning: ‘‘Everyone else is hating the rain – not me. Because look at that!’
The pair values having beautiful green grass in their yard, not least because they want to have a pleasant view while relaxing in their magnificent outdoor pool, which is currently under construction.
Mark and Michelle have been recording the makeover of their £3.5 million property for a long time, and admirers have been blown away by the sleek, custom bathroom and kitchen.
After nearly 18 months of renovations, the couple has shown off everything from their new yard to their living room – but they did cause some misunderstanding when they proudly unveiled their enormously gigantic sofa (or rather, what was on it).
The lovely cream couch, which faced a large flatscreen, featured no fewer than 16 pillows – yes, 16.
While the pillows were not to everyone’s taste, many were sympathetic when the renovations encountered a hitch earlier this year, costing an eye-watering £30,000.
The presenter said at the time that the ‘Christmas snow’ had slowed the development of the trees he’d purchased and planted to provide him and Michelle with seclusion around their property’s perimeter.
He told Heart Radio: ‘I planted some trees in my garden and they all died, and it’s devastating because I spent so long watching them thinking “please grow”.
‘They were my boundary trees to give me a little bit of privacy, and the company blamed it on the soil because obviously the wrong soil can make your plants go bad.
‘I ended up finding out they recommended the wrong plants to me, and it was because they’re not supposed to be out in the open in anything below minus five degrees and at Christmas time it was like minus 15 when it snowed.’
Back in 2021, the Mirror reported that the couple had 60 trees from Tuscany delivered that cost between £500 and £1,000 each, making their total cost £30,000.
