Now, it's a beautiful wedding venue open to the public boasting twelve acres of parkland, a moat, an orangery, a walled garden, stables and, of course, the 45-room chateau.

Dick and Angel married at the chateau in 2015

Dick and Angel established the chateau as a wedding venue by hosting their own wedding there back in 2015, which featured in the first series of the Channel 4 show.

Angel recently admitted to HELLO! she sobbed on her big day as the couple had spent the past several months working day and night renovating and restoring the neglected property in Martigné-sur-Mayenne. "We were engulfed with exhaustion," she explained. "It was the first time I’d had a bath and I had a little sob.

"We'd been working 18, 20 or 22 hours a day and were flying high on adrenaline and couldn't lose our focus. Most of the house wasn't done."

She added: "But there was a moment, before people started arriving, when it just didn't matter. Our mental state changed. We put flowers around the place and knew everything was going to be okay."

The couple bought their 45-room chateau for just £280,000 in 2015. However, the property had stood empty for 40 years, and with no electricity, heating or running water, they certainly had their work cut out for them.
