Mark Wright has admitted he misses life in LA as he continues to build his dream home in Essex with wife Michelle Keegan.

Former TOWIE star Mark, 34, who recently gave flans a glimpse inside his lavish bedroom, made the confession as he took part in an Instagram Q+A.

When a follower asked if he missed working on US TV show Extra as a presenter, Mark posted a picture with Kim Kardashian and wrote: “Deffo miss the LA lifestyle and weather!”

Mark first moved to LA in 2017 for his presenting job, meaning he had to live apart from Michelle. He quit the show in 2019 to come back to the UK, admitting he wanted to be able to spend more time with Michelle, 33, and his family.

Mark and Michelle are currently building their “dream home” in Essex.

The celebrity couple are understood to have bought a £1.3million farmhouse last October, which they demolished in a bid to create their forever home.

And recently, while getting hands on with construction, the pair have shared a look behind-the-scenes on their dedicated home Instagram account.

On their page, the couple have shared a look at different aspects of the building process, from ripping the roof off the garages to the Georgian style mansion which they’re basing their new house on.

Sharing a CGI image, they wrote: “Here's the lovely house that we purchased back in 2019 vs what we are hoping to create.

"It's been a long process so far and still a long way to go but sooner or later we will have the house, we could have only ever dreamed of #grateful.

“Thanks to @tidyworkstudio for creating the CGI image of our home, to help us see what we have chosen come to life. Great job.”
