Mark Wright admits renovating his new mansion is ‘a lot of stress’ but, fortunately, the process isn’t causing tension with wife Michelle Keegan.
The former Towie star and Coronation Street actress are currently in the process of rebuilding their sprawling Georgian home from the ground up, after buying the Essex farmhouse for £1.3million.
It’s set to be the couple’s forever home and they’ve been keeping fans updated with the renovation through social media, with regular photos of the before and what the stunning mansion should look like after completion.
Discussing the huge project on ITV’s Lorraine on Friday, Mark said: ‘Honestly, you talk about stress, it’s fun stress but it’s where it’s the home we’re going to live in, I just want it to be perfect.
‘So even if it’s like, why’s there not a plug socket there? You know when you move into a new home, you can’t put a lamp somewhere ’cause there’s not a plug socket there, every finer detail I’m trying to get right because I don’t want to look back and think, “Ah, I shouldn’t have had that door there, I should have had it there”, so I’m changing things a lot.’
‘It is a lot of stress but it’s a fun stress,’ he added.
When Lorraine Kelly asked if it’s causing Mark and Michelle to argue about house designs as many couples do, he replied with a laugh: ‘Nah.’
Mark previously shared an insight into the progress of the home rebuild, and told Metro.co.uk in May: ‘It’s going really well. It’s stressful, of course, building your house from scratch, you don’t want to get anything wrong and just choosing all the right stuff. It’s also very exciting at the same time.’
He added of whether he had bickered with Michelle, Mark added: ‘No, we’ve both got the same taste. I’ve made sure there’s a gym in there because I like to be able to train at home.
‘It’s going really well and we’re excited. We just want to get it done now.’
Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV.
