VIEWERS of a new Channel 4 travel show may spot a familiar face on Monday as an Oxford's woman's mission to run a French chateau is featured.

Barton-based Tanya Field will appear in episodes of Escape to the Chateau DIY Monday and Tuesday.

A spin-off series from the original Escape to the Chateau, the show follows Brits renovating and running crumbling French chateaus.

Ms Field, who owns the Chateau de Bois Giraud in the French Loire Valley with her two sisters, was followed around by film crews interested in chronicling everything that goes in to keeping the grand building going.

Episodes will be shown at 4pm on both days.
