Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright turn to Rio Ferdinand and Leigh-Anne Pinnock for inspiration to plan dream staircase

MICHELLE Keegan and Mark Wright have turned to Rio Ferdinand and Leigh-Anne Pinnock for inspiration to plan their dream staircase.

The couple shared six photographs of potential staircases to their 201,000 followers on their dedicated Instagram account, Wrighty Home, asking fans, “What staircase do you think….1,2,3,4,5,6???????”

Staircase number one, with black railing banisters and a giant mirror adorned with ornate black carving, was instantly recognisable as it belongs to Mark’s former Towie co-star Kate Wright and her footballer husband Rio Ferdinand. 

And staircase number three on the picture list belongs to Little Mix singer and pop star Leigh-Anne Pinnock – with black and white photographs of the star hanging up on the walls behind the stairs. 

Both of their dream staircase inspos also live in Essex but it seems neither star’s stairs are the popular choice for Mark and Michelle’s new gaffe judging by the comments. 

Most of the 8,000 commentators seem to plump for number six on the list which is very clean lines and would be in keeping with the outside style of the house they’re erecting.




Mark, 34, has been documenting him and Michelle’s building works of their £1.3million Essex build including Mark getting in on the action driving down fences on a powerful digger.

The Heart Radio presenter and his actress wife, 33, bought the house in 2019 and were granted the go ahead to pull the original house down and build a new palatial white mansion with grey paved driveway in the middle adorned by a grey orb. 

The couple said their new property was based on a ‘white/Georgian style’ and they wanted ‘more of a modern twist.’

The huge five-bedroom house sits in a garden of manicured hedges and country trees.


"Building started last summer during lockdown and the plans include a home cinema, bar, gym, outdoor swimming pool and sunken fire pit in the garden.

Mark said of the project: “Here’s the lovely house that we purchased back in 2019 vs what are 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.”
