What’s Dick Strawbridge’s net worth?
Dick did up the French chateau on a shoestring budget.

The couple paid £280,000 for their chateau in 2015 and transformed it into an upmarket wedding venue valued at £2million.
Now the pair charge huge fees for couples to tie the knot in the moated property in Pays de la Loire.
The typical cost of a wedding for the maximum 80 guests allowed is more than £34,000 — and it’s booked up for the next two years.
A new series of Escape the the Chateau is on on Sunday November 15 at 9pm on Channel 4.
