Inside ‘million-pound motorhome’ once owned by Jenson Button & Jacques Villeneuve

Million Pound Motorhomes is a new programme exploring the world of luxury motorhomes. While the average holidaymaker may be more used to a traditional caravan or even a simple tent, when it comes to the motorhomes explored in the Channel 5 documentary, owners can expect nothing less than “five-star” quality.

One motorhome in particular, which boasts an opulent experience is “The Icon”, which is described as a “five-star hotel on wheels”.

Currently owned by one-off vehicle collector Andrew Morris, this huge motorhome was initially built for Formula One driver Jacques Villeneuve before being sold on to racing legend Jenson Button.

During the documentary, Mr Morris gave cameras an exclusive look inside this unique travelling holiday home.

“This particular motorhome was designed by Jacques and his then-finance Dani Minogue,” explained Mr Morris.

The opulence doesn’t end there though.

In fact, even in the bathroom, no expense is spared.

Not only does the toilet come complete with a thermostat-controlled heated seat, but the taps and shower fittings are also made completely of solid gold.

Some of the motorhome’s former owners’ more specific requests also remain and are something of a key feature.

However, “A list” rentals come with a hefty price tag to match.

For one night, holidaymakers can shell out “upwards of ¬£4,000”.

According to Mr Morris, though, in the past, this figure can double for those who want to spend more on some additional perks.

“A Michelin star chef, a specific type of flower colour scheme, champagne, cigars or whatever you want,” said Mr Morris.

“There are people who will just spend six-figure sums over a period of four or five days. That really is no limits.”

Million Pound Motorhomes is on Channel 5 this evening at 8:00pm.
