Who is Dick Strawbridge's wife Angel Adoree? Escape to the Château host and author

But what else is there to know about Angel? Here's the lowdown on the self-styled red-headed entrepreneur turned presenter…

Who is Angel Adoree?

Angel is best known for writing the Vintage Tea Party book series, and she's also a trained image consultant.

She appeared on Dragon's Den in 2010 and was offered £100,000 investment from Deborah Meaden and Theo Paphitis for developing her website and business, The Vintage Patisserie.

However, after the show, the investment didn't materialise.

In 2011, she opened her first Vintage Patisserie in Hackney, East London.

Angel married Dick Strawbridge – whom she met via their shared agent – in November 2015, and they raise two children together – Arthur and Dorothy.

In January the same year, Angel and Dick quit the UK in search of a better life in France.

They purchased a 19th-century chateau – Chateau-de-la-Motte Husson – in the Pays de la Loire, and began restoring the property.

The property, which is featured in TV show Escape to the Chateau, has 45 rooms, 78 windows, 12 acres and one moat.

They paid £280,000 for the chateau, but it came with no electricity, heating or water – and a sanitation system that was emptied into the moat.

Angel said of the project: "We just jumped in and got on with it. Dick and I are firm believers in the harder you work, the luckier you get. And he’s so young at heart.

"He has more energy than most young boys. He’s like a little rabbit. He just keeps going on and on.

“For Dick it was really full-on. Every time he did something, another difficulty popped up."
