Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright share lavish new addition to £1.3m dream home

By Victoria Johns

Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright are adding a lavish new feature to their £1.3m dream home in Essex.

The former Corrie star, 34 and her husband, 34, told fans they're planning to install a huge glass-walled sauna.

The palatial pad has its own Instagram account and it was on this that Mark wrote: "Looking for bespoke glass for our sauna and steam and master shower…. Do you think smoked glass? Bronze? Or just clear?

"Any glass company’s (sic) that can do bespoke like this please let us know. Inbox us. Thanks."

The couple bought their Essex mansion back in 2019, which they demolished and have been reconstructing to create their new forever home, which is thought to cost the couple £3.5 million to complete.

Mark previously took to his Instagram story to give fans an update on the mega-mansion.

The entrance to the home is said to feature theatrically lit stairs while the couple's garden is set to boast a crystal clear pool, complete with luxury holiday-style sun-loungers and cabanas.

The pair hot-footed it to Mexico recently to soak up some festive Winter sun.

Taking to Instagram Stories, ex-Towie star Mark shared envy-inducing photos of the couple lounging on the back of a boat, which was surrounded by crystal clear water.

As they said goodbye to 2021 the pair soaked up the sun and the cocktails as they relaxed in the beautiful country.

The trip will no doubt have come as a welcome relief to Mark, who had a cancer scare earlier last year.

Taking to Instagram Mark shared his relief having been given a clean bill of health.

He said in a video: “I got the all-clear the other day, it's cancer-free.

“It was a terribly worrying time but that's done, it's in the past, we move on. I'm not gonna lie, it really gave me and my family a scare."

He continued: “I’ve had the worry and the anxiety about what this could have been, and just staying in and recovering just leaving me feeling a little bit low and not very motivated.”

Mark told fans to go and get their 'lumps and bumps' checked out saying: "MORAL OF THE STORY: If you notice anything that doesn’t look or feel quite right. Don’t leave it," he insisted.

"Nothing in life is more important than your health and well-being. Get checked, check yourself and make sure you take good care of yourself."
