The book is a diary-style with Angel’s entries in bold so readers can distinguish who is talking.
During a chat with Graham Norton on his Virgin Radio show, Dick explained Angel had scolded him on his approach to his entries in the book.
He said: “There’s a big difference in how we work together you see because the horsepower and some of the things that aren’t quite so interesting, I got into so much trouble for writing so much about toilets in October.
“Apparently that’s not what people want to read about but it’s really important.”
Angel replied with a laugh: “I fell asleep reading that in October.”
Despite working on the chateau for six years, the couple admitted to Graham there are major jobs that still need doing.
Dick said: “We’ve got some massive jobs to do and we’ve got some things that we’re tackling.
“This year is a different year again because we’re still locked down here in France so we’re locked down and haven’t had the easing we’ve had back home so consequently, it’s quite different.”
Angel added: “We have got some big jobs to tackle if we are honest with you.
“We’ve still got the roof to do which is obviously an massive one and we still haven’t done the windows properly.
“They’re still being plastered over. We’ve also got things like we’d like to have a swimming pool.”
