The tweeter made his comments after watching an old episode of Escape To The Chateau, which first aired back in 2016.

The success of the programme, which follows the former Army officer and his family renovate and redecorate a 19th-century in France, has seen it run for seven seasons.

Dick could be seen installing a hot tub in the first episode of series five, broadcast in November 2018.

The couple were creating a luxury glamping experience in the grounds of their stunning property.

“It’s not glamping unless it’s glamorous apparently, and for us that involves a wood-powered hot tub,” Dick told viewers on the show.

After recruiting the help of three men, he was seen moving the heavy item into place with ease.

“Oh Jesus, that’s heavy.

“What a stupid idea,” he said to his helpers as he lifted the hot tub.

“Four men. A tub. Combined age of 212,” Dick joked as they carried it across the grass.
