Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan have been busy turning their “dream” Georgian mansion into a reality.

And Mark, of The Only Way Is Essex fame, has given fans a tour of the construction project taking place at the £1.3 million sprawling home in the Essex countryside.

The Heart Radio DJ, 34, has an Instagram account created especially for sharing house updates, @wrightyhome, and gave its 207,000 followers a glimpse of their huge loft on Wednesday.

Mark made his way up the stairs into the property's highest floor, telling fans: “So, the roof rooms are now being shaped and laid out – this is the hallway when you get up to the roof.”

Workmen were seen in the background as Mark gave a tour of the soon-to-be gorgeous home.

He explained: “One bedroom over there and one here. You walk into this bedroom, as so, and now at this stage we are just working out where the beds are going to go because you want to put electricity for the TV and stuff.

“That is the en suite to that bedroom – nice size!”

Walking to the opposite wing of the house, he continued: “This is another bedroom, another lovely sized room, views all across the land all here.

“So that is another big bedroom and another big en suite.”

The couple, who tied the knot in May 2015, purchased a mock-Tudor farmhouse in the Essex countryside in 2019 but that property has now been demolished to make way for a newly-built home.

In March, Mark shared a montage of the building work, captioned: “Part of my life I don’t always share is my property development.

“A hobby and side hustle that I love but last July me and @michkeegan started building our dream home… we debated sharing our journey & after a lot of thought we decided we wanted to bring you along with us!”

The latest updates come after Mark promised to ‘spend more quality time’ with wife Michelle.

Mark has reportedly realised what is ‘important’ following a tough year which saw six of his relatives battle Covid.

After losing his 66-year-old uncle Edward to the virus in March, Mark said his family will "never be the same again".

Speaking exclusively to OK!, a source said that going through this heartache has made Mark realise how essential it is to make the most of every moment with his wife, Michelle.

“The whole family were torn apart by Eddie’s death,” the source explained. “And it particularly affected Mark because they were so close.”

“It’s been a devastating time,” they continued. “It’s made him realise that he wants to spend more time at home with Michelle.”

“This is the time for him and Michelle to really spend some quality time together,” said the source.
