This is the plush Helsby pad Justin Bieber called home during his brief stay in the North West.

As The Chronicle revealed earlier this week, the What Do You Mean hit-maker spent a few days at the futuristic underground home during the Manchester leg of his Purpose World Tour.

It is clear to see why an international megastar would choose to stay there.

Worth almost £5m, the James Bond-style property comes equipped with an indoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, 10 bathrooms and its own helipad.

Living in such luxury obviously got the better of Bieber, who appeared to be in a bit of a mood during his visit to the UK.

The singer caused a stir after walking off stage just two songs into the second half of one of his gigs in Manchester – and upset fans after shouting at them to get out of the way of his car.

In 2015, our sister title the Liverpool ECHO was given a tour of the Helsby home by owner, Widnes Vikings director Steve O’Connor and wife Clare.

Speaking in 2015, Steve spoke about his unusual decision to build down rather than up.

He said: “We couldn’t construct anything above ground that was bigger than the original house, so we asked if we could build underground instead.”

The couple worked closely with an architect to come up with the design and in 2008 builders began carving out the sandstone.

“People think that because the majority of the house is below ground level, it’s going to be dark and cold, but that couldn’t be further from the truth,” added Steve.

As well as the family rooms, there’s an indoor pool heated to 31 degrees, a jacuzzi from which you can watch TV, a sauna and steam room, gym area, 10 bathrooms and private living quarters for the family’s housekeepers.

Outside is a 40ft football pitch, a tree house, zip wire and two Super Lambananas who regularly go for ‘walks’ around the ground.

“I think the housekeepers like to have a bit of fun with them, as they always seem to pop up in different places,” added Steve.

“We’ve also got loads of bikes, so people joke that it’s like coming to Centre Parcs when they visit."
