ANGEL Adoree became a household name when Channel 4 filmed her and her husband Dick Strawbridge as they bought a rundown old French chateau and turned it into a fairytale castle.
The redheaded entrepreneur is known in the interior design world, and favours outrageous prints and wartime aesthetic.
Who is Escape To The Chateau’s Angel Adoree?
Angel was born on April 7, 1978, in East London, South Africa – making her 42 years old.
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 £250,000 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.”
What is Angel and Dick’s net worth?
The TV couple are known for doing up a French chateau on a shoestring budget.
But thanks to their now luxurious 45 bedroom mansion, the pair are expected to be worth millions, although their exact net worth is unknown.
Dick and Angel paid £280,000 for their chateau in 2015 and transformed it into an upmarket wedding venue valued at a whopping £2million.
Now the pair charge huge fees for couples to tie the knot in the moated property in Pays de la Loire.
The typical cost of a wedding for the maximum 80 guests allowed is more than £34,000.
