Dick Strawbridge, 61, had promised his beloved wife Angel Adoree, 42, they would bring their new home back to life, as they moved into a gorgeous French chateau, after “falling in love” with the property’s “orangery” at their first viewing of the home. The couple left the UK in 2015 and relocated to a stunning French chateau which later became the focal point of their Channel 4 programme Escape To The Chateau.

It needed to have something with a heart

It was a difficult decision at first to move to a new country with their two small children Arthur and Dorothy, however, Dick promised Angel they would be okay despite the upheaval.

The couple also revealed there was one particular part of the property they both fell in love with when they first saw it.

They shared: “We have an orangery, with which we fell in love when we walked around the property waiting for the estate agent to arrive.”

Dick became determined the couple would restore the estate to its former glory and transform it into a booming business.

Angel who has a background in interior design, began to channel her passion for home decor into the property and brought her vision to life.

In the turret room, Angel had wanted to recycle the antique wallpaper she had found in the attic 

Cutting it into sections of different diamond shapes, Angel said about her idea: “I like diamonds, something a little more Alice in Wonderland about it, isn’t there?”

She added to the Daily Mirror: “Dick and I made the promise to one another to bring this place back to life and for me, I’m taking everything that I think is eye candy and bringing it back to life.

“Stuff that’s not attractive and very practical – he’s bringing that back to life and together I can feel a bit of a pulse beating. It needed to have something with a heart.”

However, Angel struggled to make the diamonds fit together.

She continued: “It’s all about getting them lined up. What I probably should have done is stick to doing mathematical.

“But I’m far too stubborn for that I’d rather work it out the hard way.”

It comes as Dick shared on Twitter that the couple will be taking their Dare To Do It Tour on the road again in 2022, once all coronavirus restrictions have finally been lifted.

The Escape To The Chateau star said he was “so excited” to be able to interact with members of the public on the tour with his spouse after being forced to postpone tour dates last year once the coronavirus pandemic caused theatres to close.

Dick re-shared a post from the Escape To The Chateau Twitter account which read: “We have news! We’re so excited to announce that Dick and Angel’s Dare To Do It Tour’ is finally back! 

“And YOU are the first to be able to buy tickets…from TODAY!”

“Official nationwide sales are next week but those who follow us are getting a bit of a head start ….”

The Dare To Do It tour will take place from the beginning of February and end in March 2022.

Across the world, millions of viewers have been enthralled by the couple’s adventures on TV, and during this tour retired Lieutenant Colonel Dick and designer Angel will share more untold tales with audiences.
