Escape to the Chateau's Dick Strawbridge and Angel Adoree share rare snaps of family members

ESCAPE to the Chateau stars Dick Strawbridge and Angel Adoree treated fans as they shared rare snaps of their family members.

The pair are well-known for welcoming Channel 4 viewers behind the scenes as they transform their 19th century French castle.

Dick and Angel are usually seen juggling running the property with life as parents to two children – Arthur, eight, and Dorothy, seven.

But this time around Angel, 43, gave social media followers a brief insight into life with their extended family members.

Recalling a recent visit to the UK, Angel posted a selection of pictures of them all having fun creating Halloween pumpkins.

She explained: "As its the day before we begin the countdown to Christmas we thought we would look back at a spookier celebration from the Strawbridges newsletter…

"This year's Halloween was an intimate and gruesome affair. It’s become a family favourite with Arthur & Dorothy. As a toddler, Arthur was obsessed with a variety of ‘gross’ things. The thought that he could scare one of the grown-up’s was, and still is, too much fun…

"We start adding cobbwebs around ten days before the big event, which always strikes us as being ironic as we spend the entire year ensuring there are none…and this year we found ourselves having a ‘boys’ versus ‘girls’ pumpkin off."

She added: "We can’t hide behind the fact that we are all so competitive! Somehow Dick got to pick the winner and this year the girls won… "

Coronavirus restrictions saw the family of four unable to leave France for a considerable amount of time.

When they were able to pack their bags for a visit, they declared: "It's been nearly two years since we visited loved ones and we are going to spend time seeing friends and family.

"Facetime, Zoom, chatting on the phone has kept us connected, but there is nothing like a hug and sharing that moment together."

Angel married Dick – whom she met via their shared agent – in November 2015,

In January the same year, Angel and Dick, 62, quit the UK in search of a better life in France.

They purchased a 19th-century chateau – Chateau-de-la-Motte Husson – in the Pays de la Loire, and began restoring the property.

The property, which is featured in TV show Escape To The Chateau, has 45 rooms, 78 windows, 12 acres and one moat.
