Mark Wright admits it was 'nerve wracking' choosing the final shape of his dream home with Michelle Keegan

MARK Wright has given fans a throwback look at his and wife Michelle Keegan's £1.3million dream mansion.

The Heart radio host and Michelle are building their luxury home from scratch, with work first getting underway last summer.

Sharing a video recorded after the foundations were laid, Mark has told his fans that it was "nerve-wracking" choosing the final layout and shape.

He wrote alongside the footage on Instagram: "Back in August, seeing the shape of the house.

"Was a nerve wracking moment, hoping we chose the right shape etc.

"All of that land there, never to be seen again…. well until somebody one day in many many years knocks it down to create their dream once we are gone. 100 years at least I hope."

Mark and Michelle have sold their luxury Essex home to fund their new build.

As he panned across the footprint of the property, which will look out over rolling fields, the former Towie star said in the August clip: "So we knocked down the house about a month ago.

"We've now put the piles in, which is the foundations…which are those things there. Now the membrane's down and the steels will go on top of that.

"But that there is the mat and the base of the house. One month into it, just getting started. Gonna try and get this done within 12 months."

Earlier this week, a source close to the couple told The Sun they are "thrilled" after selling their five-bedroomed house in Essex.

"It was their first home together and it holds so many happy memories but they're excited about the future and building their dream home," the insider said.

"They wanted to share that with their fans so started an Instagram and are overwhelmed how many people want to follow their journey." 

Mark and Michelle were granted planning permission to demolish a £1.3 million farmhouse and construct a five-bed mansion in Ongar.

It will come complete with a bar, a gym and an outdoor swimming pool.  

But given that the house is many months away from completion, it will now likely mean the couple will have to rent or move in with pals until it's complete.
