Tamzin Outhwaite is making an extravagant addition to her London home, by installing a £12,000 sauna in her garden. The EastEnders actress is following in the footsteps of David and Victoria Beckham with the new addition to her property, after the couple installed a similar igloo-style structure at their Cotswolds residence.

According to Daily Mail, Tamzin has been given planning permission for the Scandinavian steam room, which has room for six people and resembles a log cabin from the outside. The structure will be largely hidden from view in the mum-of-three's garden, which is why none of her neighbours had any objections to its construction.

Tamzin has ordered her sauna from Iglucraft, the same company where the Beckhams ordered theirs. The company has become a favourite among celebrities, as Guy Ritchie also bought one for his Wiltshire estate in September, and likely recommended it to his friend, retired footballer David.

However, the Beckhams opted for a lavish cabin with a sauna, steam room, relaxation room and wash room, with space for six people to relax and unwind in their own back garden. David shared a glimpse at the structure in his garden before Christmas, writing: "Loving this cold weather right now."
