Angel Adoree, 43, has two children with husband Dick Strawbridge, 62, with the couple documenting the restoration of their French chateau on their popular Channel 4 show, Escape To The Chateau. As well as her own offspring, Angel is stepmother to Dick’s two children, Charlotte Strawbridge, 35, and James Strawbridge 37, from his previous marriage and spoke about their relationship on Netmums podcast, Sweat, Snot & Tears.
Angel said because of the age gap between her and Dick, his children are: “Obviously in my age range.”
The TV personality added she gets on really well with Dick’s eldest child, James and she isn’t the only one.
She joked: “Even my nan has a crush on him!”
Dick had been separated from his first wife Brigit many years before he met and married Angel in 2015.
Last year, James made an appearance on his dad’s show Escape to the Chateau, as his second wife Angel threw her parents a 50th wedding anniversary during the episode.
The professional chef, who had previously appeared with his dad and mum Brigit in the BBC series, It’s Not Easy Being Green in 2006, helped to create a dream menu for Angel’s mum and dad.
Fans were quick to swoon over the talented cook on Twitter, with one writing: “I didn’t think this programme could get any better and then the eldest son came to visit.”
While another wrote: “Oh my, he’s gorgeous. Channel 4 give him his own show immediately!”
Meanwhile, Dick and Angel are parents to two younger children, Arthur, seven, and Dorothy, six.
The youngsters are often pictured in cute photos on their parents’ Instagram accounts and make appearances in their family’s show.
Writing on the family’s Facebook page in April, Angel gave an insight into their children’s experience during lockdown.
She explained that they had enjoyed helping to teach Arthur and Dorothy while they were at home from school, but weren’t trying to become teachers.

“With the children at home we’ve enjoyed sharing knowledge – we haven’t tried to mimic their formal education, or tried to be fully-fledged homeschoolers, instead we have been working together in the garden and being creative,” she wrote.
“And Dick is finally going to write some children’s books that he has been testing on his four children, and finessing, for over 30 years.”
Also on the podcast, Angel admitted she and Dick “do not fit in with the “chateau set” and also discussed her approach to motherhood and how she juggles that with the endless renovations and projects she has going on within their home.
The fashion icon also revealed her biggest regret about buying the family’s grand French castle.
The mum-of-two admitted that in the early days of their renovation, they cut corners to save money, which resulted in a driveway full of gravel.
She explained in one show episode: “This bit outside the house, well it is a big monster of just ugliness.
“There’s this rectangle shape [and there] is just nothing there.
“Three years ago when it was just mud outside, I wanted the gravel down because it was €20 a tonne and it covered a space.”
Angel laughed as she confessed: “Obviously, I don’t like it now – I don’t think it looks very good.”
