Angel and Dick Strawbridge look back on their Escape to the Chateau days in a new Instagram post. Taking to the platform on Friday, the pair – who previously worked with Channel 4 to document their DIY journey at home – revealed some throwback photos from the show’s seventh season, which is set to take place in 2020.
Writing a heartfelt message, the caption explained: “This week’s Chateau harvest update took us on a trip down memory lane…back to Series 7 and the incredible bounty produced in the Walled Garden.”

“We know there are a lot of stories in the press right now. It’s not worth it for us to even try to comment or give context, because anything can be made into a good headline. We understand. There are two sides to every story and from the incredible support we’ve received, most of you know that.
