FANS we're ecstatic as Escape to the Chateau returned to screens this weekend.
The Channel 4 show chronicles life for Dick Strawbridge and his wife Angel Adoree and it has returned for its last ever outing.
The popular programme returned for its ninth season and follows the husband and wife duo who have spent five years renovating Château de la Motte-Husson where they host weddings but after two years of no operations, Angel was left with major concerns in the opening episode.
Angel was left worried about the 'big year' ahead of them and felt as though the pair did not have enough time in order to get everything prepared again for it to be in tip-top standard.
In one scene, whilst walking with children Dororthy and Arthur, Angel aired her thoughts and concerns to Dick about what was to come.
Angel said: "I'm afraid, babes that this is a big year for us, this is a year of celebration.

Dick then added: "We are worried about getting the Chateau functioning and Petal [their dog] is worrying there might be a little mouse or something on our land.
