Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan tour their new home
Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan are planning to secure their new Essex mansion with two-metre high gates, after Essex Council gave them the nod to go ahead.
Stanford Parish Council has told the couple, both 34, that they can install the gates but added that they have concerns about the style of the gate and hope that Mark and Michelle will consider changing it.
MailOnline report that the letter from Epping Forest District Council states that they have “no injection” to the application that they have “concerns about the style of the gate” and urge the pair to choose an “alternative style of gate more fitting to the surrounding rural environment.”
The genetically-blessed pair bought their Essex mansion back in 2019, which they demolished and have been reconstructing to create their new forever home, which is thought to cost the couple £3.5 million to complete.
The palatial pad has its own Instagram account – allowing fans to follow the progress of the epic renovation project.

“It’s a tough one this one as you may think ‘it’s only gates’ but it’s the first thing you see. We want to go black so what style do you think out of these? 1,2,3,4, or 5.”
