Host Lorraine Kelly asked the pair: "Are you going to end the series on a high then?" to which Angel replied: "We literally finished filming a week ago and it was really emotional. My mum kept crying all the time and it was really happy emotion. 

"Arthur was sobbing. It was really beautiful, there's not many times where you get all your family and friends together. When it's a happy moment like that, boy it was a party."

Dick added: "Joyful is the word [to describe it]."

When quizzed on what the future holds for the family, Angel said: "We are saying that it is the end of a chapter, not of a book. There's a lot to do," before detailing that the couple have only just started renovating their windows.

The family will return with a new series in 2023

Dick added: "We've got France to explore. We've got the rest of France to see." 

The pair, who have been married since 2015, announced the heartbreaking news back in September with a statement that read: "Escape to the Chateau has been our family journey; our decision to buy a Chateau with no water, electricity, heating or sewage has taken us on the adventure of a lifetime and we could never have imagined what would unfold. The good, the bad and the ugly… we have cherished every second and love that we have a visual record to show Arthur and Dorothy when they're older."

Luckily, the family won't be away from our screens for too long as they will be back in 2023 in Channel 4's new series, Escape to the Chateau: Secret France. The upcoming show follows Dick and Angel as they embark on a new journey to seek the unexpected and the extraordinary and discover more about France's history.
