Escape to the Chateau's Dick and Angel Strawbridge are set to release their third and final book titled. The Chateau: Forever Home.

While the popular TV couple may have closed the chapter on documenting their renovations at Château de la Motte-Husson on Channel 4, their new book (pre-order now from Waterstones for a signed edition, or Amazon) will recount and conclude the newest and biggest challenges they faced on the journey of transforming their Château.

It explores how the Strawbridge's fared during the pandemic, including the cancellation of wedding season to living in an isolated bubble away from family so they could continue to film their hit TV show.

The book is said to be 'Dick and Angel at their most honest and heartfelt, revealing many details never seen on TV', as readers get a behind-the-scenes insight into how the couple kept their family's dream life in France alive as the world changed.

Writing on The Chateau Instagram account, Dick and Angel said: 'We cannot express the joy we have had putting pen to paper (or rather fingers to keyboards), it has been both magical and unique.

'Over the past few years we have been writing in parallel with some serious renovations, and deadlines, and we have loved it! But we often wondered what it would be like to write without such pressures, and we are delighted to confirm it’s everything we have hoped for, and more!

'Thank you for giving us the opportunity to share our journey with you, it's been quite emotional re-living the past few years, but very special to have the opportunity to capture these memories.'

After wrapping up Escape to the Chateau, Dick and Angel announced the launch of a spin-off series, Escape to the Chateau: Secret France, which would follow the couple as they share the secrets they've learnt by heading off the beaten track and exploring the little known areas of France.

The Chateau: Forever Home will launch on 26th October 2023 and is available to pre-order from Waterstones (signed edition) or Amazon now.
