Tess and I'm a Celebrity star Vernon had enlisted Urban Curve Architecture, to create their "sustainable and energy-efficient family dwelling".

The new build would feature a "timber effect front door" as well as windows "in grey aluminium frames". The property would have been four storeys, yet with "the appearance of a two-storey dwelling".

Tess and Vernon bought their second home in 2018

The mum-of-two previously told HELLO! that her favourite thing to do is relaxing at home with her daughters and spending quality time together.

She said: "It's nice to have a bit of time to do ordinary things like the school run, baking with the kids after school, helping them with their homework. I live for that stuff, it's my number one role as a mum."

During lockdown, the family even created their own vegetable patch in their incredible garden.

Tess, 51, shared a photo on Instagram and captioned it, "We made a tiny 'experimental' vegetable plot and planted these at the start of lockdown, and am now chuffed to bits as the first raspberries and strawberries have just made an appearance.

"Been making a conscious effort to boost the old wellbeing by staying positive and engaged in enriching activities and it feels good growing stuff."
