Angel Strawbridge reflects on a whirlwind summer at her home – Chateau de La Motte Husson in France. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, the Escape to the Castle star revealed that the family has been extremely busy lately, adding that they’ve only just had a chance to “take a breather”.
Sharing a photo of her husband Dick on their official account, Angel wrote: “Greetings to you on this beautiful Wednesday afternoon. It’s the last week of the holidays and the first chance we’ve had to catch our breath all summer! We’re taking over the house with school supplies and ‘sneaking out’ they are preparing for Dick’s birthday, which is on Sunday this year.

After starring in Escape to the Chateau from 2016 to 2022, the Strawbridge family has since embarked on a new journey, starting the year with a theater tour of Australia and New Zealand. They also announced the release of their new book, ‘The Chateau: Forever Home’. But as far as television appearances go, they don’t seem to be on the cards.
After the couple called it quits with Channel 4, it appears Angel and Dick have no TV appearances planned
In May, it was confirmed that Channel 4 had officially ended their cooperation with Dick and Angel. According to Deadline, the decision was made after an independent investigation into the couple’s behavior on the show. It was reported that concerns were initially raised by Two Rivers Media – the production company behind it Escape to the Chateau franchise.
The report explained that the couple clashed with producers, with an independent human resources expert conducting an investigation that included interviewing producers and crew members.

In an official statement, a Channel 4 spokesperson said: “After a review, we have taken the decision not to work with Dick and Angela on any new productions in the future.” Two Rivers also released a statement that read: “We can confirm that we will no longer be working with Dick and Angela and cannot comment at this time.”

As a result of the broken relationship, it appears that Angel and Dick’s spin-off series, Escape to the Castle: Secret France – which began filming months before – will no longer be broadcast. Although it would be a shame to put the project on the back burner, unless the series is picked up by another broadcaster, it is very possible that viewers will not see it.
The four-episode spin-off show, which was supposed to follow the family as they traveled around France, was due to be released later this year.
