Escape To The Chateau’s Dick Strawbridge and his wife’s ‘worrying’ attic discovery
The Escape To The Chateau star has spoken out after fans of the show raised concerns for his wife, Angel, following their discovery in the attic.
The 61-year-old addressed the situation after Channel 4 viewers shared their “concerns” about his 42-year-old wife.
The situation came when Angel was seen at her top floor ticket office, which resulted in viewers expressing concern that some of their most prized possessions could be in danger of being damaged.
Fans had gone to Twitter to call Dick and ask what happened when they brought furniture to the attic.
There have been concerns that the vintage wallpaper that adorns the walls of the castle in the Loire region has raised the question of whether it “survived unscathed” during the furniture move.
One fan tweeted: “On the episode ‘Upstairs, Downstairs’ of #EscapeToTheChateau, I worry that while they are carrying this stash upstairs to Angel’s loft, they’re scratching holes in the vintage harlequin-style wallpaper walls.
“Did the wallpaper survive intact, @dickstrawbridge?”
Dick dutifully replied, saying that if anything had happened to the precious wallcovering, he would have suffered the consequences.
Fortunately, the castle owner was able to confirm the background image was said and added, “I’m still here so this will be a yes !!”
The wallpaper had caused great concern among viewers, who had responded to Dick about their concern that he would be for the high jump with the paper torn.
One viewer wrote, “Yeah … saw the episode last night … Dad was so worried about what could happen to you if you scratch this wallpaper!”
Another added, “Oooh on your head, be it !! Lol. “
A third joked, “For all we know, Angel wrote that!”
The comments come after Dick and Angel shared news that they’ll be back on the streets with their Dare To Do It tour in 2022.
They hope the coronavirus restrictions will be completely lifted by then.
When Dick and Angel re-shared the post from Escape To The Chateau’s Twitter account, they announced that tickets are now on sale.
The tweet read: “We have news! We are very excited to announce that Dick and Angels ‘Dare To Do It Tour’ is finally back!
“And YOU are the first to buy tickets … from TODAY!”
Dick and Angel moved from the UK to the castle near Nantes in 2015.
They have gained fame with their two young children Arthur and Dorothy since Channel 4 followed their adventures.
In the live show, the two will share previously untold stories about their time in France.
