Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan have shared a glimpse of the plans for the garden in their £1.3m Essex home.
The former TOWIE star, 34, and his actress wife, 33, shared the digital renderings of the home and garden on their home Instagram account, with images showing a vast pool area, fire pit, seating area and sun loungers.
He penned a caption reading: ‘Our garden means the world to us and we love the outdoors. We searched high an low to find the best landscape designers, after realising that there was only one company for us. We begged for them to make some time in their busy schedule. So today, we received this from the outstanding, incredible

Epic: Mark Wright and Michelle Keega n have shared a glimpse of the plans for the garden in their £1.3m Essex home
The couple have been documenting their renovation on their new ‘Wrighty Home’ Instagram page.
The previous day, Mark shared another digital rendering – this time showing the final bathroom design which featured marble floors and a vast countertop with Jack and Jill sinks. Matching marble slabs lined the walls as the contemporary ceiling lights illuminated the space in the computerised image.
The steam room and sauna in the adjoining room featured floor-length glass doors, separating it from the walkway and enhancing the modern, luxurious feel of the master suite.
Earlier this month, it was reported that Mark and Michelle are adding a designer granny flat to the grounds of the new mansion they are currently building in Essex.

Drawings – which were initially withdrawn last year – were re-submitted to Epping Forest District Council, and reveal that the annexe will have an ensuite bedroom, a cloakroom, kitchen, dining area and sitting area.
They purchased the original property for £1.3million in October 2019 and in January 2020, it was revealed that they were demolishing the four-bedroom farmhouse.
They are said to be building a lavish new five-bedroom mansion with a ‘classical design’, complete with bar, gym, kids’ playroom, and outdoor swimming pool.
The outhouse will stand at 56 sqm, which is bigger than the average London flat according to numbers from the Office Of National Statistics, which state City of London flats have a median value of 47sqm.
Kicking back: The house is perfect for parties and evenings of entertaining
The couple are hoping that normal life can be resumed once the pandemic is over and can use the guesthouse for visiting family and friends. The new addition is where the stables of the old farmhouse used to be.
Speaking to fans during a recent Q&A, Mark admitted progress was being made, but an official moving in date was still a long way off.
Responding to a fan who asked how the house was coming along, he wrote: ‘Coming along nicely thanks, but I just want to click my fingers and it be done.’
The TV personality also shared images from the skeletal build, suggesting its completion might not be for some time. Asked by another fan when the house will be completed, he added: ‘Tomorrow hopefully. Wishful thinking.’
