The Escape to the Chateau stars recently toured in America and bumped into one of their nieces

Dick Strawbridge and Angel Adoree seem to have sparked a family row after they met up with their niece Alice “by chance" in America.

The couple and their two children – Arthur, 11 and Dorothy, 10 – toured across America for their Dare to Do It tour.

Whilst there, they bumped into Strawbridge’s niece Alice and posted the chance moment on their Instagram page.

Alongside an image of Strawbridge and his family member, the caption read: “None of us can believe that we bumped into our Niece/Cousin Alice Strawbridge in Santa Barbara!

“A chance in a million happens 9 times out of ten! “Have a fabulous day or evening (wherever in the world you may be!)”

The pair recently discussed the meeting on their podcast Dick & Angel: Chat…Eu, and claimed the meeting had caused a rift within the family.

Adoree revealed that they took their daughter to Paris for her 10th birthday after she had mentioned wanting to see the Eiffel Tower.

Strawbridge explained: “It was a double weekend – two celebrations – there was Dorothy and you!”

Interjecting, Adoree noted: “My birthday whilst I was there was seeing Dorothy enjoy herself. Hazel and Leanne were my girlfriends but have become close with Dorothy.

“Then we had Sarah and Alice – our niece – we have a lot of contact with Sarah, she has always been an incredible gymnast and has always been incredible with kids.

“We’ve always had a close relationship with her. She came to the Chateau and we had her for a whole week helping with events.”

Strawbridge continued: “Alice is my niece that we met in Santa Barbara when we were on tour in America.

“And there is sort of a favourite cousin competition going on in the background at the moment, because Sarah thought that Alice had arranged to meet us in Santa Barbara.

“[She] didn’t realise that she didn’t know about it or that it was a complete fluke!”

Adoree added: “The text messages went ‘Are you trying to take my title of favourite cousin?’ and Alice was like no really it is a complete coincidence!”

During the conversation, Adoree noted that her children had left her birthday presents at home, leaving the celebrations to go on once they returned from their trip.
