ELLEN DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi have allegedly asked for planning permission to build a $35,000 spa in their Californian property.

The couple are reportedly planning to update their love nest in Holmby Hills, California with a luxury spa so they can get pampered from the privacy of their own home.

According to, construction plans submitted to the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety show that Ellen intends to install a massive 15 foot Jacuzzi on the top floor of her enviable 13,400 square foot pad.

The costly spa will come complete with glass walls, a seating are and an overhead skylight.

The 'Ellen DeGeneres Show' chat show host sold her Beverly Hills home to Ryan Seacrest last August before snapping up her current property with her wife Portia for $40 million in January,

They splashed out $60,000 on remodelling the kitchen, bathroom and adding a guard house to protect her house from prying eyes.

Despite spending so much cash on their new home, Ellen and Portia's peace and quiet has reportedly been disturbed by a ghostly presence.

A source previously said: "The house has been remodeled, so Ellen thought it would have no trace of the former owner. But she was wrong. Within a few nights of moving in Ellen started hearing random noises including footsteps and doors opening and closing.

"Then, in the middle of the night she heard a woman's faint cry. Ellen in totally freaked out. She hasn't had a solid night's sleep ever since she moved in."
