Escape to the Chateau star’s Dick Strawbridge, 61, tied the knot with his wife Angel Adoree, 42, in 2015 at their 19th century French Chateau. The Channel 4 series first aired the following year and has been a hit among viewers, as the couple gives an insight into life renovating their home.

Speaking about their relationship in a new interview, Angel opened up about the couple’s disagreements as she touched on their age gap.

The small-screen stars confessed that their marriage is one of equals, as the pair addressed their 19 year age gap which has never been an issue for them.

Angel explained that Dick had a “youthful energy” about him as she gave an insight into minor rows at home.

The father-of-four, who is a retired colonel, admitted his biggest pet peeve in their marriage is with time.

When Angel was quizzed if Dick could be a “little bit controlling” because of his military background she vehemently dismissed the claims.

Speaking in a joint interview with The Telegraph’s Saturday magazine, the couple candidly addressed their family life.

“No, no, it’s not control; it’s leadership,” Angel commented.

“When I went to Sandhurst in ’78 – what were you doing then, Angela? Oh, you were being born – the first thing you learn is the motto ‘serve to lead’,” Dick added.

Angel went on: “And he does love to be on time, which is probably the main cause of any little arguments we might have.”

Dick confirmed that his reasoning behind it comes from his time working as a colonel.

He explained that if he was ever late and he had 600 men waiting for him and he was 10 minutes late then it would be “100 man hours wasted”.

“And as a consequence, I hate being late, so I am always chasing Angela to get out of the door so we get to school on time,” Dick countered.

Angel added: “He will say, ‘Hurry up, we’re late for school,’ and I’ll say, ‘Hang on, we’ve got five minutes yet and I’m still doing Dorothy’s hair.’

“And he’s like, ‘I told you to hurry up 10 minutes ago.’ It’s just bickering really.”

Despite this, the couple admitted they are still head over heels with each other as Dick added that he often tells Angel how “gorgeous” she is.

Dick and Angel have since welcomed two children together, including son Arthur and daughter Dorothy.

Dick also has two children, son James and daughter Charlotte, from his first marriage to his ex-wife Brigit Strawbridge.

Escape To The Chateau made its debut on Channel 4 back in the summer of 2016 and it has continued to generate a huge fanbase.

The documentary series became so popular, it sparked a whole franchise that has seen Dick and Angel release books, merchandise and other spin-off projects.

Escape To The Chateau: Make, Do and Mend first launched in 2020 and the series sees Dick and Angel help families across the UK tackle DIY dilemmas.

Their latest series is set to return to Channel 4 later this month.
