Dick and Angel recently spoke to HELLO! in an exclusive interview and photoshoot. The couple, who married in 2015, opened up about their idyllic life in France, as well as what viewers can expect from the latest series.

The new episodes will see the husband and wife redesign the salon, one of their grand rooms, as well as turning their small turret into a library. However, the couple are adamant that the latest series will focus on them "living our dream, as opposed to building".

They have admitted, however, there's always more to do in their property. "The house is evolving and things are being moved around to how they were always meant to be and we have endless outbuildings," Dick admitted.

Dick, 61, and Angel, 42, also opened up about their children's future ambitions for their French abode.  "Arthur and Dorothy have plans," Dick explained.

"Arthur wants the orangery as his restaurant. He's a real gourmand and has even started his own branding," added Angel. "Dorothy wants one of the outbuildings, which will be very modern and contemporary. I'm allowed to babysit the two children she's going to have."
