Dick Strawbridge, 61, has taken to Twitter to settle a “debate” an Escape to the Chateau fan was having with their partner over the current state of the star’s French home. The TV star revealed that he and his wife Angel, 43, have “nearly” completed restoring all 45 rooms in their castle home, after admitting on This Morning that his spouse is yet to see every one.

No but nearly!!!!

After the former Lieutenant told his followers to tune in to his and Angel’s new programme, Escape to the Chateau: Make Do and Mend last night, one fan asked the star to help “settle” a marital tiff.

Dick wrote: “What are you doing in 15 min? Why not check out Ch4… just saying…”(sic)

Seizing the opportunity, one avid fan took the opportunity to put a question to the TV star.

They wrote: “Please can you help settle a debate?

“Have you restored every room in the chateau? I think no (it’s huuuuge), wife thinks yes.”(sic)

Wanting to help settle the debate, Dick revealed that he and Angel had reached a huge milestone for their restored Chateau.

He wrote: “No but nearly!!!!”

Fans of the show took to the comments to voice their support over the new show.

One wrote: “The rooms that are done are stunning. You and your wife have done a beautiful job. Your children are adorable….”

Another added: “Just watched your new program and it was brilliant, You make diy sound interesting.”(sic)

While a third penned: “Great to see you back on telly mate, such a great show fantastic home too.”

The couple, who have been married for six years, couldn’t possibly have restored every room in the 45 room chateau as Dick recently explained that Angel has yet to see all the rooms in their home.

Appearing on ITV’s This Morning, Dick and Angel spoke to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield about their new show.

As the pair opened up about their programme, it soon came to light that their French chateau had secret rooms that Angel has yet to explore.

Phillip asked: “Are there bits of that chateau or the surrounding buildings that you haven’t explored yet?”

“You know there’s actually quite a lot,” Angel confessed. “I think for us there was no rush to go and look at everything.

“We’ve got a number of things in the attic, we’ve got…”

Cutting her off, Dick pointed out: “There’s a room in the attic that Angela hasn’t been into yet.”

“I really haven’t, it’s quite high up,” Angel explained. “I didn’t know for a long time that it was actually there.

“We’ve got a number of rooms in our outbuildings as well and I’m romantic, there’s a part of me that doesn’t really want to explore it all because in my mind there’s a bit of mystery that I haven’t discovered yet,” Angel added.
