Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan ’s plans to build their dream home have reportedly been halted.
The lovebirds, who tied the knot in 2015, have demolished an old building in a bid to replace it with their £1.3million family mansion.
Former TOWIE star Mark and his TV star wife, both 33, have been looking forward to the day when they can finally move into their swanky five-bedroom Essex home, complete with a bar, a gym, and an outdoor swimming pool.
However, it is believed that their plans have now been set back after the local council told them their mansion is “too big”.
Mark and Michelle had their planning application approved last year, but their second attempt has now been declined by their local Parish Council, due to the fact they wanted to make the home even bigger.

According to The Sun, the Parish Council letter read: "At the time of the original applications, the Parish Council considers the impact the proposed new dwelling would have on the green belt, and whilst it was felt that the dwelling itself would represent a much grander and greater dwelling than the original dwelling, the demolition of the associated cart lodge was also taken into account."
The letter went on: "This new amended application further increases the size of the dwelling, and the Parish Council feels that these proposed changes increase the size of the dwelling over the original dwelling size to such a degree that it would, for reasons of its bulk and size, now represent an unacceptable increase and as such have a detrimental impact on the green belt.

"The Parish Council, therefore, OBJECTS to this proposal on this basis."
Michelle and Mark are said to have brought in over £2.5million last year, making them one of the richest British celeb couples.
Since quitting TOWIE Mark has had a successful career as a TV presenter and briefly worked in the US as an entertainment reporter.
