Jack Whitehall’s new £17.5million Notting Hill home was reportedly swamped with floodwater.
The comedian, 33, who shares the property with girlfriend Roxy Horner, 30, was said to have been forced to stay in a nearby hotel due to the damage.
According to The Sun, water flooded the kitchen and dining area, damaging the parquet flooring.

A source told the publication: ‘He’s gutted. Talk about putting a dampener on moving in. The house is incredible and he loves it. There’s even a lift and swimming pool in it. He wasn’t expecting the kitchen to become a pool as well.
‘Roxy doesn’t live there full time but she is there most of the week now and it would definitely make the perfect home to start a family.
‘They had to move out while the repairs are being done. The flooring was ruined and it was really expensive stuff.’
The source added that all the damaged property will have to be replaced, likely leaving the couple with a hefty bill.

The five-bedroom house, previously a pub, has a pool, sauna, steam room, gym, cinema and a parking garage.
Jack’s property was just one of many in the area that was left flooded last week.
A spokesperson for Kensington and Cheslea council said: ‘All affected tenants who required accommodation were helped from their homes into safe accommodation.’
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Jack Whitehall and Roxy Horner for comment.

Roxy has been dating comedian Jack since the first coronavirus lockdown after the pair met during a trip to Australia, with the model moving into his London home after just a few weeks of dating.
Jack previously admitted although the decision ‘accelerated’ their relationship, they did miss out on doing ordinary things like restaurant and cinema dates.
Speaking on the Couples Quarantine podcast, he said: ‘Weirdly that was quite nice because we spent a lot of time together and it accelerates the relationship in a way.
‘Then when lockdown ended, there’s a lot of things we realised. We’d never gone to see a film together. We’d never been to a restaurant in England because we met in Australia.’
