Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright have sold their Essex home as they start work on building huge £1.3m ‘dream’ mansion

MARK Wright and Michelle Keegan have sold their luxury five-bedroom Essex mansion. 

They are now building their dream home from scratch and have launched a new Instagram page to show off their transformation to fans.  

Sources close to the couple tell The Sun Mark, 34, and Michelle, 33, exchanged contracts yesterday and are "thrilled" to embark on their huge plans. 

"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.

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

The couple had planning permission to demolish a £1.3 million farmhouse and construct a five-bed mansion in nearby Ongar.

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

But the house is many months away from completion, which will likely mean the former TOWIE star and Corrie actress will have to rent or move in with pals until it's complete.

Mark and Michelle's current house, which they bought in 2013, was on the market for £1.78 million last October.

It’s kitted out with huge chandeliers, cinema room, landscaped gardens and a gym, which Mark has been using for his new workout and wellness business Train Wright.

The first floor boasts four double bedrooms, with three en-suites – and a family bathroom. 

The loft room includes a chandelier – a theme that runs through the property, as there is a chandelier in the hallway too.

The couple will hope to move into their new property at some point this year after the council gave it the green light despite concerns about the proposed size of the property.
