Christmas has arrived at former The Only Way Is Essex star Lucy Mecklenburgh’s home.

The 29 year old has taken to Instagram, to share with her 1.7 million followers, the process of her festive tree being decorated.

But unlike many of us, who will be dusting off the box of old baubles in the cupboard to dress our tree, the glamorous star hired a professional to do the job for her, and what a job they did!

The mother of one, who will be celebrating her first Christmas with her and Ryan Thomas' baby son Roman, filmed Fay Pearce, an Essex-based bespoke Christmas decorator, transforming the large tree.

This afforded us an insight into how the pros make a tree look so breathtaking.

To the backdrop of the song 'It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas’ by Michael Bublé, Fay and her team first added streams of gold fairy lights to the tree.

They then added lots of glistening fake foliage in green, bronze and gold colours, then added baubles of a similar colour palette.

After this, thin branches that were spray-painted gold where then put all across the tree, poking outwards to give the fir a very full and stylish shape.

The end result looks fabulous, and compliments the muted and chic design of the star's living room.

However Lucy is not the only former TOWIE star to have already decorated their home for Christmas.

Last week Jessica Wright shared the transformation of her front door, and frankly it looks incredible.

The star’s navy blue front door is stunningly styled with an autumnal wreath surrounding the door knob.

In it are pinecones and gold baubles intertwined with foliage.

However, the piece de resistance of the design is the beautiful decoration that covers the balcony and its wooden supports.

This is covered in frosted faux foliage and candy-coloured baubles and flowers. What an entrance!

The sister of Mark Wright shared the snaps with her home account’s 68.2k followers, writing: "wow wow wow I am absolutely in love with my new Christmas doorway.
