MARK Wright and Michelle Keegan are following in the Beckhams’ footsteps thanks to plans for a pond at their £1.3 million new home.
The couple have started work on their dream property, which they are building from scratch after gaining planning permission to demolish a farmhouse and construct a five-bed mansion in nearby Ongar.
And it seems the garden is getting a complete overhaul as well, as public plans show a huge pond, complete with timber bridge.
It looks remarkably similar to the pond they had at their five-bed mansion in Essex, which they have just sold.
Ponds appear to be the latest celebrity garden trend after David and Victoria Beckham got permission to build at lake at their £6 million Cotswolds mansion, despite rowing with neighbours over it.
Yesterday we revealed that Mark, 34, and Michelle, 33, have launched a new Instagram page to show off their transformation to fans.
Sources close to the couple tell The Sun the pair 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 new property 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.
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.
