WE still have well over month left until Christmas – but Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright are already getting in the festive spirit.
Earlier this week, the couple showed off their extravagant Christmas decorations on social media – complete with 6ft nutcrackers and a candy-themed tree.

The pair hired local company Elements Home & Garden to turn their home into a winter wonderland- and while they couldn’t comment on working with Michelle and Mark, they told Fabulous Digital they were happy to spread to festive cheer.
Along with their £350 tree and £500 archway, the A-Listers also spent £1000 on nutcrackers to stand on either side of their front door.
Here Fabulous Digital tots up the cost of Michelle and Mark’s incredible Christmas home transformation – and it certainly didn’t come cheap.

Tree – £670
There’s no denying normal-sized Christmas trees can cost a small fortune – but when you want one that’s over 7ft, it shoots up in price.
Naturally, the couple wanted a tree large enough to fill their enormous hallway – and amazingly, the one they picked reaches the landing of their second floor.
On the Elements Home & Garden’s website, the 7ft trees start at an eye-watering £350 – but at least that includes warm LED lights too.

But Mark and Michelle didn’t just splash out on the tree – they also spent over £300 on decorations too.
Along with their £20 festive roadsigns, the couple also have a £45 nutcracker hiding in the middle of their tree.
And with a tree this size, you obviously need a lot of baubles to bulk it out.
Opting for a candycane colour scheme, the festive fans had six mini £5.99 red-and-white baubles and four supersize ones which are £8.99 each.

Naturally, no candy-themed tree would be complete with some festive lollies too – and Mark and Michelle have five dotted round the top and bottom.
What’s more, the couple appear to have some bespoke popcorn decorations made – with the buckets matching the red-and-white theme of the tree.
But one of our personal favourite decorations are the £20 candy canes decorations they have littered around the tree – which start from £5.49 come in large and miniature sizes.

Outside – £1,705
With a Christmas tree this extravagant, it’s hardly surprising that Michelle and Mark wanted to spread the cheer outside their home too.
To start with, the couple splashed out on an 8ft arch which cost a staggering £500 – and that’s before you count the decorations.

In keeping with the colour theme inside, Michelle chose red-and-white candy canes (which cost £20 for four) and added 10 £8.99 supersize baubles before finishing off with some LED lights.
But naturally, the star attraction have got to the be 6ft nutcrackers framing the front door.
Complete with a spear and fur hat, just one of these enormous decorations will set you back £500.
For extra festive cheer, they then added some £50 red-and-white light-up presents which sit on the step leading up to the house.
