Mark Wright wowed his Instagram followers by showing off the new football pitch he has had added to his multi-million pound mansion.
The reality star, 35, shares the plush Essex pad with wife Michelle Keegan, 36, and took to social media on Sunday to gush that he was ‘buzzing’ as he shared a clip of himself kicking a ball around the massive field.
The former TOWIE star went shirtless for the afternoon game and showed his millions of followers on the social media app closeups of the goal itself before he proudly kicked the ball into the back of the net.
Playing in the background of the video was the football classic It’s Coming Home and Mark leapt into the air after scoring the goal.
In the caption of the post, Mark- who was a semi-professional footballer in the days before he found fame on television. admitted that the set up was a dream come true for him.

‘They say you never lose the love @networldsports smashed it with the Forza goals!! #home #goals #ad #football #bigkid
Michelle and Mark finally completed work on their home, an impressive £3.5million rebuild located in Wright’s beloved home county, in August – almost four years after embarking on the ambitious project.
They have since been focusing on interior and exterior embellishments, among them the landscaping of its spacious grounds and a variety of decorative touches to its numerous rooms.
Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, Mark, 36, discussed their latest, but admitted it only happened after a disagreement with his actress wife, also 36.
Sharing footage of an open plan seating area adjacent to the entrance hall, the former TOWIE cast-member said they were at loggerheads over whether or not to close it off.
He said: ‘We have a massive decision with this house – do we have doors here, or not? I think it looks better when you walk in and you see all the way through, but Michelle’s point of view is that when you’re on the couch it feels more homely if you shut yourself in a bit.

Mark eventually conceded his wife managed to get her own way by sharing footage of glass paned double-doors sealing off what used to be an open walk-through.
And the TV personality admitted he was already won over, telling followers: ‘I don’t mind it! I think the missus, as always, was right on this one. That has literally changed the game.’
For reality star-turned presenter Mark and his actress wife, moving into their forever home – built from scratch after they purchased the land for £1.3million in 2019 – has taken almost two years.
During that time, the couple have frequently shared their journey, from original architect designs to choosing the right marble for their kitchen surfaces, on their @wrightyhome Instagram account – which has amassed 570,000 followers.
