Channel 4 viewers were thrilled on Sunday night as Dick Strawbridge and Angel Adoree made a return with their final series of Escape to the Chateau. The husband and wife duo, who have spent years transforming Château de la Motte-Husson, were preparing to re-open their wedding business after two years. However, Angel was clearly worried about the timescale they had to get all the work done.
The interior designer went on to air her concerns with her engineer husband, admitting they have a “big year” ahead of them.
As they took a winter walk with their children, Dorothy and Arthur, the pair discussed how they were going to prepare for the wedding season.
Angel began: “I’m afraid, babes that this is a big year for us, this is a year of celebration.
“We haven’t got time to be doing this stuff, we have got to put our focus back on the house.”
“We will,” Dick said in agreement before looking at the Chateau in the distance.
“It’s interesting because if you look across, you can still see the work that has to be done before the first wedding.”
After two years of being shut to the public, Dick and Angel were preparing to host 12 weddings in the summer.
“It really feels like when we first started weddings,” the mum-of-two continued sharing her concerns.
“We are worried about getting the Chateau functioning and Petal [their dog] is worrying there might be a little mouse or something on our land,” Dick joked.
“Got to think about our priorities.”
“This is beautiful,” Angel agreed before adding: “This is the calm before the storm.”
Later on in the programme, Angel was left mortified when she realised how much work needed to be done to the outside of the Chateau.
As they stood outside their home, Angel asked: “Has it always been this bad?”
“We have a month to go and it feels a bit tight for me,” Angel added expressing her concerns to Dick.
Trying to reassure his wife, Dick replied: “Theoretically there is enough time.”
“So we have no problems?” Angel asked. “And the weather being kind…
“That is it,” Dick reassured his wife. “Remembering that the rendering is frosty and there is frost next week.”
As they walked around their home, the engineer added: “This area needs a bit of love, doesn’t it?”
“Big time,” Angel nervously laughed before setting out her demands.
“It is fine to have scaffolding around the back, but not here and this needs to be tidied up.”
Escape to the Chateau airs on Sunday at 9pm on Channel 4.
