JAMIE Oliver is currently self-isolating in his £6million Essex countryside mansion with his family – and it looks like the ultimate staycation.
The TV chef, 44, splashed out on the incredible pad last year, and now resides in the picturesque village of Finchingfield.
The Olivers have given fans a sneak peek inside their 16th century Spains Hall, which includes converted stables, six bedrooms and of course, a very large kitchen.
The home is set on a 70-acre estate, and even includes a three-bedroom lodge on the grounds.
In a room that appears to be the kids’ new playroom, toys can be seen stored in glass-fronted cabinets, and there are comfy chairs for the youngsters to relax in.
Jamie’s wife, model Juliette Norton, also shared a photo inside their living room, which has wooden floors and leather sofas.
The spectacular room also has an open fireplace and family photos on the mantelpiece.
Of course, any house belonging to Jamie must have an incredible kitchen, and the one in their Essex pad is certainly something to write home about.
It has huge windows to flood the room with natural light, and has tiled flooring and wooden panelling on the walls.
It comes with an island unit with bar stools so the family can sit together while Jamie whips up a feast.
There’s also a long wooden table with bench seating so Jamie and Jools can eat with their kids; Poppy Honey Rosie, 18, Daisy Boo Pamela, 16, Petal Blossom Rainbow, 10, Buddy Bear Maurice, nine, and River Rocket Blue, three.
The country may be in lockdown, but at least the Oliver kids can run around in their huge garden, which includes a large lawn and a wooden swing.
Jamie, who is worth an estimated £100m, organised for renovations at the 16th Century mansion, when they moved in.
Oliver and his wife Jools have previously shown off the inside of their other plush £8.9million mansion at Hampstead Heath.
Their other home, a Grade II property, is complete with seven bedrooms and an open plan kitchen.
Oliver opened his first Jamie’s Italian in 2008 and saw rapid expansion across the UK in the early 2010s.
But in 2017, it was revealed that the Essex-born star’s firm owed staff £2.2m and was in £71.5million of debt.
Jamie’s Italian shut 12 of its 37 sites as part of a Company Voluntary Agreement and steakhouse chain Barbecoa went into a pre-pack administration.

And Jamie ‘lost £25m when his Jamie’s Italian restaurant chain collapsed’.
