Jamie Oliver is beefing up security at his £6 million Essex Tudor mansion, Spains Hall.

The celebrity chef, 46, has secured permission to install new fencing and metal gates which combine remote-control modernity with classic design.

He bought the Grade I-listed 12-bedroom mansion in Finchingfield at the start of 2019, and it boasts a 70-acre estate.

His planning consultant, Stephanie Gray, told the Daily Mail's Eden Confidential: ‘Temporary gates were put in place as a security measure to prevent unauthorised access.'

The manor house boasts 12 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a large games room, great hall, dining room, two drawing rooms and a wine storage area. 

Its plush gardens are Grade II listed, and the Elizabethan country house was named after Hervey de Ispania, who owned the land in 1086. 

Since then the land has been owned by just three families - the de Ispania family, the Kempe family and the Ruggles family, and Jamie bought it from the latter - who had owned it since 1760.

The large grounds are perfect for kids Poppy, 20, Daisy, 19, Petal, 13, Buddy, eleven, and River Rocket, five, and it has a kids' playroom, with toys stored in glass-fronted cabinets and comfy chairs.

Jamie and his wife Jools, 47, regularly post loving snaps of their children in the garden on social media. 

It comes after Jamie called for an 'Eton Mess' protest outside Downing Street if Boris Johnson does not undo his U-turn on key elements of the childhood obesity strategy.

The TV personality recorded himself outside the prime minister's residence today, saying he was 'upset' after the government reneged on plans to ban junk food TV
