Gordon Ramsay won permission to build a giant basement with a wine store and a new 'super-master bedroom' in his £7million London mansion on Friday. 

The 54-year-old celebrity chef is re-vamping the first floor of his South West London home and knocking through four bedrooms to create the ginormous master with two en suites. 

His 'super-master bedroom' will cover the entire entry level of the house with a walk-in dressing room that is larger than the bedroom itself.

Meanwhile, In the huge basement, the celebrity chef will have room for another en-suite bedroom, a study, a plant room, a boot room and a shower room.  

The lavish basement features a glass well in the design, in order to let natural light flow through the property. It's unclear, however, whether Gordon will use the bottom floor bedroom for staff or guests. 

Gordon's extensive overhaul of his multi million pound South London property will also see him demolish his whole ground floor to add an extension with a modern glass design, which will house his open plan kitchen, living and dining room. 

Wandsworth Council have given the green light for the large renovation, which will add 76 square metres on to the home, start in 2022 and take more than a year to complete.

As well as altering the entry and basement levels of his property, Gordon will also renovate the second floor of his home by adding a new wall, garage and front gates, plans have shown. 

The celebrity chef has been careful to pre-warn his neighbours of the large-scale building works. 

Notes from his architects Quartet Architecture reveal in the design statement:  'Meetings have been held with the owners to discuss the proposals and no adverse comments have been received.' 

According to the documents, Gordon's renovations aim to 'create a functional layout throughout the house, allowing for greater room sizes while optimising living accommodation and opportunities on the site'.

The refurb will provide the Hells Kitchen star with a 'modern environment to live, designed and built to the highest standards ensuring longevity and efficiency,' it claims.

The famous chef shares the luxury pad with his wife Tana and their five children - Megan, 23, twins Jack and Holly, 21, Matilda, 19, and Oscar, two. 

Gordon regularly shares glimpses inside his family home to social media, which he splits his time in between his other £4.4million holiday house in Cornwall.

Gordon's London home currently  features a state-of-the-art-kitchen which has vibrant purple counters and yellow and lime green stools. He regularly shares glimpses of it while posting updates of cooking videos to his Instagram.

Other details include a glass balcony from the kitchen that overlooks and goes out onto the sprawling garden, which has an immaculate lawn.

While the family home also features fun striking artwork which includes a Disney Mickey Mouse canvas that has cartoons on it.

This isn't the first time Gordon has planned work and in 2019 he won his battle to install an 'igloo' at his £7million London mansion. 

The chic cabins, which cost around £40,000 each, typically have three outside windows, a small door and are clad in spruce shingles and plywood battens.

Inside, the luxury pods include a fully functional kitchen, double bed, electric heating, a shower, storage, power points and a TV cable.

Developed in Estonia's harsh winters, the huts can also be fitted with electric heating and are awash with natural light, thanks to large windows and a half-glazed door.

Under the proposals submitted to the council at the time, the cabin known as the 'Model 4', would be positioned at the bottom of a sizeable garden of his eight-bedroom Victorian home.

Wandsworth Council gave the plans the go-ahead but advised Gordon that he had to arrange a meeting with arboriculturalists who will visit to inspect his trees.
