ESCAPE to the Chateau fans were left 'shaking their heads' after Dick and Angel revealed their drastic loft transformation.
The couple have wowed viewers of their Channel 4 show many times as they continue to work on their French chateau.
But in the latest episode, they really knocked the socks off fans as they transformed their dingy attic into a stunning bar.
Dick and Angel had been getting their roof replaced when their roofer Steve exposed an area that hadn't been used for at least 150 years.
The large room ran from the front of the house to the back and Angel was shocked, saying: "I did not know this was up here! Oh my goodness me.
"When you said an attic, I thought you meant a little room you could barely stand up in. It's completely beautiful up here."
Dick suggested using the space for storage, but Angel had other ideas, saying: "This is stunning. I understand we need to plasterboard it and insulate it, but I'd hate to get rid of all this shape. That's just covering over the character. It's incredible."
She then asked her husband: "Can we have a skybar in here? It's quite nice isn't it – the view is stunning."
While initially reluctant, Dick came round to the idea and they were soon insulating the space.
They then added two new windows that opened onto balconies and Angel got to work on a navy feature wall with gold galaxy-style mural.
She said: "There is something about this room that is so magical – because it's ours. I actually feel like I'm in a night club, all these gorgeous lights and glitter balls."
The end result not only delighted the couple but viewers at home, who couldn't help but feel jealous about the gorgeous space.
GREEN WITH ENVY
One wrote on Twitter: "I love this programme….and everything about it. I want an evening in the Observatory Bar. I'm so jealous."
Another added: "Anyone else sit watching #EscapeToTheChataeu shaking their heads in utter jealousy. Makes me realise how w*** I am at most things."
A third tweeted: "Once again watching #EscapeToTheChateau with a warm smile on my face, feeling very envious and saying repeatedly 'They are so clever' @dickstrawbridge."
Escape to the Chateau airs on Channel 4 and is available on All4.
