Dick and Angel's new series is landing in Canada very soon

Many more international audiences are keen for the new series. "Season 8 is not being shown in California or in the US???? Very disappointing when do you expect it will be shown and on Peacock? Hopefully very soon!!!!" commented a third, as a fourth added: "Cannot wait for the release in Germany."

Chateau de la Motte Husson is based in Pays de la Loire, near Nantes in France. Owners Dick and Angel bought their 45-room chateau – which has 78 windows, 12 acres and one moat – for just £280,000 in 2015.

However, the property had stood empty for 40 years, and with no electricity, heating or running water, they have been renovating it as part of their TV show ever since.
