ESCAPE to the Chateau's Dick Strawbridge and Angel Adoree are returning to the UK ahead of the new series.
The married couple shot to fame in 2016 when the popular Channel 4 show first aired.
The programme follows the pair as they do up a 45-room 19th-century chateau in Martigné-sur-Mayenne, France.
Dick, 62, Angel, 43, and their two kids Arthur Donald, eight, and Dorothy Francis, seven, haven't been able to see their loved ones since the coronavirus pandemic hit.
But now they're finally heading back to the UK.
They told their 174k followers on Instagram: "Next week we will be packing our final bits and heading over to the UK.
"It’s been nearly two years since we visited loved ones and we are going to spend time seeing friends and family.
"Facetime, Zoom.. chatting on the phone has kept us connected, but there is nothing like a hug and sharing that moment together.
"We can’t wait to meet new additions to our family, tell stories and cheers loved ones that are not here and with that in mind we plan to enjoy every moment."
Fans rushed to the comments section to share how happy they are for them.
One said: "Enjoy your time!!! Be safe!!! Can't wait to see you on the tele again!!! Love love you guys☮️💜."
Another wrote: "Have a wonderful time guys! 💙💙."
A third chimed in: "Treasure every moment 🤗🤗."
Despite now being based in France, the pair will always see England as "home".
Speaking on the Sweat, Snot and Tears podcast, Angel said: "England will always be our home. We're British.
“But France very much feels like being home.
There have been seven successful series of the show over the past five years, and there will soon be one more.
They confirmed the exciting news on Instagram yesterday.
The post said: "The Strawbridges are making their long awaited return to @Channel4 on Sunday, 24th October at 8pm… for a brand new 8 part series of Escape to The Chateau!
"More family adventures, awe-inspiring renovation projects, big reveals, and a magical Christmas special in the eighth series of the prime-time ratings-busting Escape to the Chateau… and we can’t wait! 🎉."
Angel and Dick tied the knot in 2015.
