MARK Wright has shown off her HUGE swimming pool at his new £1.3million Essex mega-mansion as work starts on the outside.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star took to the Instagram page he set up for the building of the home to film the pool installation.

Mark, 35, filmed as builders laid out the huge slabs of concrete that would soon form the basis of the sprawling pool,

A deep hole had been dug out in the garden to make space for the stunning outdoor pool, set among the stunning countryside.

Mark and his wife Michelle Keegan have big plans for their outdoor pool space – which they shared the jaw-dropping plans for last year.

Judging by the unbelievable pictures he posted last night it is going to look like the Beverly Hills mansion out of The Bodyguard.

Digital images show the palace-like home, which is currently being built, standing at the top of a set of steps that are lit from below.

They lead down to an electric-blue pool surrounded with sun-loungers and Marbella-style cabanas for the couple and their guests to relax in.

Posting on the home’s Instagram account, Mark wrote at the time: “Our garden means the world to us and we love the outdoors.

“We searched high and low to find the best landscape designers, after realizing that there was only one company for us.

“It’s funny how you can have a dream, tell the professionals and they make your dream, bigger than you ever imagined.”

Last week, Mark and Michelle, 34, ramped up the security measures at their new mega-mansion with two-metre high gates.

The Sun revealed the couple’s plans for gates at their dream home in Ongar, Essex back in January after Mark’s £65,000 Range Rover was stolen.

Now the couple’s local parish council have given the green light for the couple to put up the new gates, but raised a concern over the style of the barriers.

A letter to Epping Forest District Council, seen by The Sun, states: ‘Whilst the Parish Council has NO OBJECTION to this application, it has concerns about the style of the gate, specifically its opaqueness, and requests that consideration be given to an alternative style of gate more fitting to the surrounding rural environment (such as slatted design) whilst also considering and protecting the security of the applicant.

“The Parish Council supports the provision of landscaping around the perimeter of the site as proposed within this application.”

Radio presenter Mark desperately sought the help of police and fans on social media after the pricey motor was pinched from outside his Essex home in broad daylight.

Mark and Michelle bought their home for £1.3million but have set about turning it into a high-tech mansion bristling with security features.

The stunning country pad has been designed like an elegant fortress and fitted with 360 degree motion-sensing cameras.
