Former Towie star Mark Wright has revealed further details about his luxurious £1.3m mansion being built in Essex. 

Mark and wife Michelle Keegan are in the midst of building their dream home after buying and knocking down an old Tudor home in Epping Forest. 

Mark has kept fans update on the progress with the house via Instagram, offering photos and walk-through videos. 

The couple have recently submitted plans to the local council to demolish an onsite stable and replace it with a one-bedroom annexe.

It has been reported the new annexe will become home to Marks parents, Mark senior and Carol Wright. 

The plans will include a bedroom, bathroom, TV room and an open plan kitchen, living and dining area with a feature window and doors. 

Mark has taken to Instagram in recent weeks to ask for fans' help in choosing a new staircase and new bathroom.

He has also posted photos of plans for a fire-pit outside. 

Last week, Mark showed off a photo of the garden to mark one-year since the project began. 

He added: "Long way to go until it’s finished but the garden is taking shape."

The Heart Radio presenter has also revealed the roof to the property has now been installed. 

It is not know when the new home will be finished but the Sun has reported that the couple have begun to move in items into the property this week.
