The final episode of the show aired on Sunday night

The couple appeared on ITV's Lorraine only last week, where they spoke about how emotional they felt while filming the last episode. 

"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]." 

On what the future holds, 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. 

"It's going to be an ongoing project."
