Amanda Holden and Rochelle Humes spend £10K on luxury wendy houses – complete with ice cream parlours and balconies

ALTHOUGH they always look lovely on the outside, wendy houses are almost always plain on the inside to allow your kids' imaginations to really run wild. At least, that's what we always thought.

Well it turns out, celebrities' ideas of what a wendy house should looks like are VERY different to the humble constructions in our local playgrounds.

Dad Kevin Cox, from Melksham, Wiltshire, owns Tinytown Playhomes which has created wendy houses for celebrities including Rochelle Humes and Amanda Holden.

These impressive creations include stunning balconies, bespoke staircases, boutiques and even ice cream parlours.

So it's hardly surprising they can cost the same as a deposit for a REAL house at around £10,000.

Since the start of the coronavirus crisis, the entrepreneur has seen demand for his designs sky rocket as parents desperately try to keep their little ones entertained.

Kevin originally worked in IT and would build play-homes as a hobby, but after a few years of wanting to start a business he decided to quit his job in IT and pursue his dream of starting a play-home company.

He said: "It's a small business and at the moment it's just my son and I running it as we don't want to break social distancing rules, so we've been extremely busy.

"We're getting orders in all the time, especially at the moment as parents are looking for ways to keep their kids entertained.

"Each of our play-homes are built and designed with an incredible amount of detail which can push the price above many people's budget.

"We have sold to all walks of life, including some celebrities and even a Russian billionaire who wanted a play-home for their holiday home in the South of France.

"We aim to provide the highest level of quality and detail that you can't find anywhere else.

"The requests that we get vary massively, we've had some people who want us to replicate their own house but on a much smaller scale"
