Ashley Walters, 41, has seen two planning applications rejected to extend his bungalow, which he claims his family has outgrown.

The former So Solid Crew member bought the home based in Kent in 2021 for £815,000 but has since sought planning permission to extend his family home, as well as other renovations.
