Lucy Mecklenburgh has shared the latest updates from her ongoing home renovation project.
The former TOWIE star is currently working hard to overhaul the Edwardian home she owns with Ryan Thomas in Manchester.
The couple bought the property as a second home up North and close to Ryan's daughter, Scarlett.
The family have dedicated an entire floor of the new pad to the 13 year old for when they stay over.
Scarlett lives in Manchester with her mum Tina O Brien and her dad previously admitted the long-distance was putting a strain on the family.
Speaking on his Mancs on the Mic podcast with brothers Scott and Adam, he explained: "I know I’ve got Scarlett [who] I have to keep going back and forward for… That puts a strain on our relationship because I’m not with her [Lucy] because I’ve gotta get back for Scarlett.
"There is that trying to find a mix of making both work and working out where you’re going to end.
The 36-year-old has previously said that he would like to live in Manchester full time.
"I think eventually I’d like to be in Manchester with both my kids, but at the moment it’s having that help at hand in London it’s just easier, but I think eventually I would love to be back where I started with all my brothers and all our kids.
"I think that’s what’ll happen eventually but we’re just taking it a day at a time. I think that’s what you’ve got to do with this family life."
In the mean time, his fiancee Lucy is working hard to renovate the new home to their tastes.
Lucy has even started her own dedicated Instagram home account to keep fans updated with every stage of her projects.
Lucy shared some of her plans, writing: "We are planning to start by ripping out all the built in wardrobes…
"New carpets and painting, But living in it like that before we decide on any big changes like extensions, loft conversions, new kitchen, knocking through walls etc.
"I think it's helpful to live in the house to get a feel for it & then make a plan of action!"
The house update comes after the couple revealed they are expecting their second child a couple of months ago.
