Escape to the Chateau: Dick teases Angel about the grass

Escape to the Chateau couple Dick Strawbridge and Angel Adoree released a lengthy statement on Instagram insisting it was their decision to “part ways” with Channel 4, explaining “there are two sides to every story”.

They said: “Thank you for inviting us into your living rooms. You have watched our children grow up and shared our adventures.

“It was a Strawbridge Family decision early last year to conclude ‘Escape to the Chateau’, but we have loved every moment and, despite the many challenges, we refused to give up on our dream, and in doing so have filled the chateau with love and laughter, and, most importantly, have created the most wonderful home for our family.

“We know there are lots of stories in the press right now. It’s not worth us even trying to comment or give context, because anything can be made into a good headline.

“We understand. There are two sides to every story and from the incredible support we have received, most of you know that.”

They continued: “We are proud of who we are, and we feel we must do what we believe to be correct, that is in fact what kept Escape to the Chateau unique, and whilst we have indeed parted ways with Channel 4, we are hugely grateful to them and their teams for their support and creativity over the years.

“The future truly could not look more exciting and we thank you for your continued love and support. Dick & Angel Xxx.” (sic)

Dick and Angel’s fans took to the comment section in droves to send their good wishes to the couple.

User susiebluerooms shared: “It’s been so wonderful and inspiring following your journey right from the beginning x.”

While user tuitejo1 added: “We will miss watching your amazing family and all your talents. I wish you nothing but happiness. Maybe a family update once in a while. Good luck!”

“Thanks for everything Dick and Angel and congrats for the restoration of the Chateau. It was great,” Francoise_dominique75 penned.

Monica went on to say: “You are wonderful I saw it all and I am amazed and I want more of you,I live in Sweden and I wish you a happy good life.”

The designer and engineer’s statement comes after it was reported Channel 4 had “cut ties” with the reality stars after ordering an independent investigation into their conduct.

Earlier this month, it was claimed the company that produces the series raised concerns with Channel 4, who then decided to end their relationship with the DIY experts.

A spokesperson for Channel 4 told “Following a review we have taken the decision to not work with Dick and Angel on any new productions in the future.”
