This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby gets permission to turn the garage at her £3m London home into a studio flat for a family au pair

  • The ITV host and husband Dan Baldwin bid for planning permission in April 
  • The couple are now poised to begin their ninth set of renovations in seven years 
  • Builders will add second storey on their brick garage at the end of their garden 

Holly Willoughby's plans to revamp her £3million London home by converting the garage into a one-bedroom studio flat have been given the green light by council bosses. 

In April, MailOnline revealed that the This Morning presenter and TV executive husband Dan Baldwin were vying for planning permission for the build which will house the au pair to their three children.

The couple are now poised to begin their ninth set of renovations at their exclusive six-bedroom home in seven years.

Holly Willoughby and Dan Baldwin's (pictured leaving the Ivy on Wednesday) plans to revamp her £3million London home by converting the garage into a one-bedroom studio flat have been given the green light by council bosses

On Tuesday, the local authority approved the 38-year-old ITV host's proposals to add a second storey on the brick garage at the end of her garden.

Architect Brian O'Reilly, who drew up the plans, said: 'Currently the existing building consists of a small garage and poorly lit adjoining room.

'We propose to transform the existing building, providing functional, naturally lit accommodation for a live-in au pair.'

'The existing structure would be maximised through the addition of a second floor, largely hidden behind the existing parapet walls. '

The new studio will have an en-suite bathroom and benefit from natural light from three dormer windows.

The architect emphasises that the windows will look towards the main house and not into any neighbouring gardens.

Willoughby's so-far smooth application process comes three years after cross neighbours rallied to block potential extension works.

One of those who objected Julie Halstead, wrote: 'As my home looks directly into the tower - a two-storey extension would mean that I will be much more overlooked with loss of privacy.'

And the I'm A Celebrity star's frosty relationship with the street climaxed in neighbours accusing her and Mr Baldwin of 'keeping the neighbourhood up with drunken behaviour', in an anonymous letter delivered to the their home. 

Mr Baldwin, 44, reacted angrily by emailing 50 neighbours, many of whom the couple had never met, seeking help in tracking down the letter-writer.

He denied creating any such noise, saying he and Miss Willoughby were watching Nashville – a US drama set in the world of country music – and that they wanted 'an explanation' from their critic.

And to assist their hunt, Mr Baldwin attached two images of the woman who delivered the letter, obtained from the CCTV cameras bristling from his luxury home. 

The couple has three children - Harry, Belle, and Chester.
