Her husband Dalton Gomez is expected to spend a lot of time with her while she is in Britain.

A source told The Sun: ‘Ariana is renting a stunning house in one of the capital’s most sought-after neighbourhoods.

‘But anyone who thinks they might catch a glimpse of her has no chance, as the place she has found is like a fortress.

‘The home has private grounds and is well out of reach of other people, so she’ll be able to totally switch off after filming.’

It is said the price of renting the property will come in at ‘hundreds of thousands of pounds’.

The insider said the home has a sprawling kitchen, bedrooms packed with high-end furniture, huge reception rooms, a massive cinema, and big private gardens for entertaining.

MailOnline has contacted a representative for Ariana for comment.

Ariana jetted to the UK earlier this year for rehearsals after she was picked for the part over Amanda Seyfried.

Ariana previously admitted her role as Glinda and her beauty brand REM Beauty are taking priority – with music taking a backseat for the time being.

She wrote on social media in May: ”The truth is, I have not begun an album. I know, I hear through the grapevine that you have a lot of theories and expectations in that department. But after Positions, I was not ready to start another album yet, so I have not begun another album.

‘That was really the only reason, but aside from that, that was kind of around that time that I started hearing murmurs about a Wicked audition coming soon, so I went into full preparation mode while I was also shooting The Voice.

‘So I was shooting and then also doing lessons every day, cause I just wanted to be prepared for when the call came. 

‘I had no idea what it was coming, but I was just like, “I want to be ready to go in.” I know the material like the back of my hand, but I still have so much to learn and I want to be in prime condition.

‘So I went pretty hard getting ready, and now, thank God … thank goodness, literally, the most incredible gift of my entire life is this role that I’ve adored since I’m 10 years old, and that is going to have every piece of me; every minute, every ounce of my heart, my time, my soul, my everything that I can give it.

‘So my hands are quite full with a lot of other thrillifying work at the moment, and this being a part of it. 

‘REM Beauty is really fun and we work really hard on that as well. But yeah, I am spending all of my time with Glinda. I just was not ready. (sic)’
