Escape to the Chateau’s Angel Adori and husband Dick Strawbridge have become real fan favorites since the lucky couple first hit our screens.
Engineer Dick, 62, and designer Angel, 43, picked up sticks and left the UK in 2015 for a better life in France with their two children, Arthur and Dorothy.
And it seems the adorable family spends every minute of their adventure restoring the crumbling Château de la Motte-Husson.
However, speaking about their time on the hit Channel 4 show, Dick and Angel recently revealed some of the pitfalls of inviting the public into their lives.
in an interview with Wire, they almost opened once the guests decided to poke a little around the stately digs and wandered into their private quarters.
It looked like the guests hadn’t made a real mistake and properly fantasized about the Strawbridge family having a gossip in their natural habitat—like they were on a David Attenborough documentary.
Detailing the thundering experience to visitors trying to get a glimpse of rooms that are out of bounds to the public, Engel said: “When this has happened, Dick has politely asked them to leave. We are never terrible to anyone who has turned up here, but if you have someone in your house they have to behave”.
“And walking down the stairs to our entrance hall isn’t acceptable, I’m afraid,” Dick yelled.
Later in interviews, the pair responded to allegations that they “bullyed” people working for Spark Media, the production company responsible for the program’s first four seasons.
Several former crew members reported Time That Dick and Angel were “aggressive and abusive” during the shooting.
Angel explained: “If you ask every single person on our team, they will all say that Dick is totally chivalrous. He will always be the door opener, the person helping people, and if someone bothers me, So he will be the first one to take control of the situation. He is very protective.
“These anonymous people – we don’t know who they are – we’ve probably only met once. One of them, the main one we think, we only met for a few hours.
“The people who were here for any length of time were family; the kids knew them and we really opened up our world to them, so you can imagine how sad it was to read that stuff”.
