Tyson Fury has been given the green light to renovate his Grand Designs-style multi-million pound mansion. The Heavyweight champion  bought the eight-bed mansion in Cheshire last year for an undisclosed price.

He applied to demolish the property so he could replace it with a modern mansion complete with a new pool. However, a nature report spotted two species of bats nesting in the loft of the property.

If Tyson wanted to go ahead with the demolishment, he would need a special licence to do so. This would have also involved putting bat boxes in nearby trees for the common and soprano pipistrelles.

Tyson decided against this and chose a different refurbishment route. He reapplied to extensively modernise the crumbling building and outhouses, which currently occupy the lot. According to The Sun, he and his wife, Paris, are now planning to renovate the basement, add on two side extensions and an eight-metre rear extension.

These renovations will be in addition to a four-car garage, swimming pool and other ‘leisure facilities’ including a hot tub.The basement will feature a music room, games room, garden room and home cinema. In a design statement, Fury’s planning agent said the facilities were "incidental to the enjoyment of the dwelling house."

The Furys currently live in a £1.7 million mansion in Morecambe, but the new house is closer to his half brother Tommy Fury and his girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague, who live nearby in a £3.5m mansion with their new baby Bambi.

Tyson and Paris  recently announced that they are expecting their seventh child. He shared the news back in March with his 5.8 million followers via Instagram stories. In the post, he said: “All is not lost! I get to do date night with my beautiful pregnant wife. God is good.” He added: “What a woman” and “Seventh incoming.”

The couple embarked on a trip to Disneyland Paris with their six children over the bank holiday weekend. Paris shared a video on her Instagram Story showing them on the Eurostar on their way to France. She also shared snaps of her children in matching outfits.
