Speaking to the Daily Mail, Wilkinson attributed the resurrection of his injury plagued career to this property.

When I went through my injury period between 2004 and 2007, I just couldn’t stay fit and I was struggling.

It was then I decided to extend the property to include space for a gym and a swimming pool.

It kind of saved my career. My whole life was about doing rehab and gym work to try and stay fit and get back into my job. It became a bit of a retreat almost.
