Meanwhile, on this side of the pond, Escape fans are loving the most recent instalment in the series, which began in November.

One viewer wrote: "Oh my goodness, I've always lived by the expression 'What's for you won't for by you!' Passed down by my great grannie and I very much believe in that too. So nice to hear you say that to your children another lovely evening of #EscapeToTheChateau."

A second fan also praised the Strawbridge family for getting children involved in the work around the house. They tweeted: "Dick and Angel [are] such a great team, soon the children will be able to [do] lots more too, although they are very helpful for their age. Great TV."
