Scarlett Moffatt gives fans a first look at new home she's building after selling Durham mansion for £400k

SCARLETT Moffatt has given fans a first look at the new home she's building after selling her Durham mansion for £400k.

The 30-year-old star has launched an Instagram page entitled Our Bonnie Barn to share updates as she and boyfriend Scott create their dream home.

The former Gogglebox favourite shared a series of photos to the profile's Story that show the house before renovations get under way.

Scarlett teased a glimpse at a chic wooden staircase as she asked fans for ideas on what they could do with the space under the stairs.

She was thrilled when followers suggested everything from a wine fridge to a large house plant – and even a mini library.

Scarlett previously shared the lush countryside view from the property, writing at the time: "It may look like a mud pile right now but this is the view from our forever home.

"It makes me and @scottdobby so excited to know we’ve found the home we will make all of our memories in ❤️

"If someone had told me 3 years ago I’d have found the love of my life and my forever home I’d have never believed them #love #home #family".

Scarlett and Scott's chihuahua Bonnie also lives with them, and no doubt influenced the Bonnie Barn name.

Earlier this month, Scarlett sold her modern five-bedroom home for nearly £400,000 after just one week on the market.

She'd lived in the property for three years but decided that it was time to move on, writing at the time: "Me and Scott are off on an adventure (10 miles away) so our beautiful home is now for sale."

A description of the home on Rightmove read: "The home stands as a credit to its current owner and has been finished to an extremely high standard throughout, boasting quality fixtures & fittings making this the dream purchase for any growing family…

"A property of this calibre is very rare to the market and must be viewed in person to fully appreciate. Truly the best of its kind!"

Photos of the Toft Hill mansion reveal its open plan dining room, kitchen and lounge area with a huge TV mounted on the wall – as well as a cinema room.

The I’m A Celebrity winner got the keys to the plush home in 2017, one year after she gave her parents money to pay off their own mortgage.

She moved back up north after a stint in London living in rented accommodation.

Scarlett has been dating police officer Scott for almost two years and they moved in together last year.

She wrote on Instagram last month: "I normally don’t like saying this because I’m scared I jinx myself 🙈 but @scottdobby takes all that fear away.

"I am so happy I have found my soulmate. Never give up on finding true love we all find it at different points in our life ❤️ #love #happiness."
