The couple recently teased news episodes of Escape to the Chateau despite shutting down rumours previously

Angel Adoree, 46 recently asked her husband Dick Strawbridge, 64, not to make "make me cry" after they touched on their son, Arthur Strawbridge, 11, leaving primary school.

Adoree and Strawbridge moved to France in 2015 with Arthur and their daughter Dorothy Strawbridge, 10, kickstarting their new life, new Channel 4 series Escape to the Chateau and wedding business.

Since their series came to an end in 2022, the couple have continued to keep their fans updated on their Instagram account and also their podcast Dick & Angel:

During their latest episode, Adoree admitted she was emotional as their son was coming to the end of his time in primary school and going into the world of secondary.

Adoree noted: "This week, it has been quite an exciting week, some would say."

"We have come to the end! It is the end of an era within the family," Strawbridge expressed before Adoree quickly jumped in: "Don't make me cry! I am in a good place."

The 64-year-old explained: "When we are coming to the end of this particular bit! Do you remember your last couple of weeks of school before the holidays and how it was so relaxed and there was no urgency, it was very gentle...

"Sunny days, going to school with no pressure, if you are doing your GCSE's or A-Levels then there are some exam pressures but most of the time coming up towards summer it was the big holiday is coming."

Revealing what they were sad about, Adoree said: "I think that we are at the end of that kind of vibe and it has been incredible. This is the last week of school..."

Strawbridge added: "Arthur's last week in the primary school in the village! If you watched Escape to the Chateau you would have seen mummy taking her three year-old-along.

The couple spoke about their son going to secondary school


"He learnt how to ask to go to the toilet and that is the only French that he spoke, mummy took her little boy along and gave him to the class. Arthur was the biggest by a long way!"

Laughing at how Arthur is still the biggest, Adoree recalled: "This morning, he gave me a kiss, he was there and Dorothy was in the bedroom as well getting some clothes out.

"Arthur gave me a kiss and Dorothy said 'Get this Skyscraper out the way!' Arthur is so tall!

"We have got a really busy week, on Friday the end of the week we have got this Boom which is a big party at the Orangery, it's the whole year, it's the parents, teachers, it will be a lot of fun. Then we're off on holiday."

Dick and Angel teased the return of their Channel 4 series


The couple recently teased they could be returning to TV screens, as Strawbridge told Yahoo: "Dorothy is growing up so, so fast and we were really thinking about living at the Chateau with the children more than we are generating television."

Adoree stated the family would be fine with "filming for a small amount of time" at their home: "We have always said that we're very open to a little update because we are really aware that everyone that has followed us around the world.

"They want an update but that is very different from having the cameras here for the whole year and for the children."
