Escape to the Chateau stars Dick and Angel Strawbridge delighted fans with the news that their book has become a Sunday Times bestseller.
Their latest release, Forever Home, landed the ninth position on the 'General Hardbacks' list – and the reality stars couldn't be happier.
Taking to Instagram, the couple shared a photo of their book, revealing its status as an "instant" bestseller. "What a fantastic end to the weekend! Our new book Forever Home is in the Top 10 of the Sunday Times Bestseller List," they penned in the caption.
"This is a huge deal to us and it's because of you - everyone who has supported us and bought the book. We cannot thank you enough."
Fans flocked to the comments section with messages of congratulations, with one person writing: "Of course it's going to be there!! Your other books have been amazing, I can't wait to read it!!"
A second follower penned: "Congratulations... you bring fun and love to this world," while another added: "And that surprises you, Strawbridges? It doesn't us!"
It's been an exciting time for the Strawbridges recently. Not only have they released a new book, but they have also launched their own podcast with Global Player.
The first episode of Dick & Angel’s CHAT…EAU was released on November 1 and marked the couple's first media project since their Channel 4 reality programme, Escape to the Chateau.
In a clip from the opening episode, Dick told their listeners: "We are doing a podcast here from the chateau and it's about our life and how ridiculous and how silly it is to buy a chateau.
"Once we've established that it's a pretty silly idea to buy a chateau, we'll tell you about our life in France and what's going on in our world."
Angel added: "We've been filming for the last ten years and I can't wait to get in and talk about all the funny memories that didn't make the show. We have got a lot to say."
The podcast will see the pair open up about their children and family life at the Château de la Motte-Husson, which they bought in 2015. At the time, the house had no basic electricity, sewerage, or heating. The couple's renovation was documented in their Channel 4 show.
Giving fans an idea of what to expect from their new podcast, Dick and Angel penned in a recent newsletter. "Picture this. Dick & I sneak up to the apex of our house, we pour a cup of tea or a gin depending on the time of day and have a cosy chat.
"We talk about the week, the children, and the things that have made us smile. We take a trip down memory lane and re-live moments from our past. It's intimate, warm and a very special hour for us...we have even joked that it feels like a date!"
Escape to the Chateau aired from 2016 to 2022 and followed Dick and Angel as they renovated the 19th-century property whilst simultaneously raising their two children, Arthur and Dorothy.
Opening up about the decision to end the show, Dick said: "We know that Arthur and Dorothy would get to an age… they were so little and didn't really know what was going on.
"We're living in such a different world now and for us as a family, we finally caught up with the weddings from COVID," he told Christine Lampard during an appearance on ITV's Lorraine.
