Meanwhile, it's not just the new book and a meet-and-greet that fans have to look forward to. The couple also announced they'll be back for a new series very soon.

It's been confirmed that the Strawbridges will make their return to Channel 4 on Sunday 24 October at 8pm. Viewers will also be delighted to hear that the series finale, airing on 12 December, will be an extra magical festive special.

The couple, who have been renovating their stunning 45-bedroom chateau in the North West of France since 2015, said of the exciting news: "It's hard to believe we started our journey over six years ago. The Chateau has changed and evolved, and we have loved every moment, every challenge!

"We feel very humble to have the opportunity to continue sharing our adventures. 2021 has been an interesting and unusual year. With weddings and events still on hold, we've been busy tackling that long 'to do' list and spending quality time together as a family."
