Six years ago, Dick and Angel Strawbridge transformed a magnificent 19th-century chateau in the French countryside into an incredible family home and a base for their wedding and events business. And although life is a little different in 2020, Dick and Angel's family adventure continues.

It's been a long hot summer at the chateau. The walled garden is bursting with a bumper crop of fruit and veg, gorgeous Kerry blue puppy Petale, the newest member of the Strawbridge family, is growing fast, as are Dorothy and Arthur.

Dick and Angel's never-ending chateau to-do list is as long as ever, and with no guests, weddings or events at the chateau this year, Dick and Angel use their engineering and design skills to tackle some major projects.

First on the list is transforming one of the old outbuildings into a supersized workshop for chateau-sized jobs. But before work can begin, the floor above must be emptied of decades of debris and, amid the rubbish, Dick and Angel discover that the chateau still has secrets to share.

Escape To The Chateau returns Sunday 15th November at 9pm on Channel 4.
