In 2022, the couple submitted plans to build a stable area on a vast amount of land near their property.

Plans include a yard, stables and paddock. The proposal was described as 'change of use from agricultural paddock to equestrian including new stable building and yard for residential purposes only.'

Leicester City will be looking for their first win of the year tomorrow against in-form Brighton at the King Power Stadium.
