Escape To The Chateau stars announce tour after Channel 4 cuts ties

Escape to the chateau: Angel says the house has moved on to Dick

Escape to the Chateau stars Dick Strawbridge and Angel Adoree released a lengthy statement last month and the couple insisted it was their decision to “part ways” with Channel 4, explaining “there are two sides to every story”.

The TV duo, who have shared their chateau renovations with millions of viewers over the past seven years, recently halted bookings at their famed home which is open to the public for events such as weddings.

Dick, 63, and Angel, 45, have announced big plans as they revealed they will be going on tour – their first since the pandemic three years ago.

The couple was forced to cut their 2020 tour, Dare to Do It, short, but excitedly looking forward to getting on the road next year.

Taking to the official Escape to the Chateau account, they penned: “We are delighted to announce our all-new UK tour: Forever Home (avec le nitty gritty)!!

“It’s been nearly a year in the planning and we simply could not wait to tell you that we are hitting the road for our biggest ever theatre tour!

“Taking our family on the road has been an honour and a complete pleasure. Our first theatre tour in 2020; Dare To Do It, was a complete unknown. It was humbling, not only for the number of you that came to see us, but for the stories you told us when we had a chance to have a hug afterwards!

“In the new Tour, we explore Why & How we dared to do it, delve deep into our classic myth-busting and click-bait segment (always a favourite of ours, as we get to set the record straight!). It will be an interactive evening of fun and games, especially now we can have you back on stage!!”

They went on: “We simply can’t wait, and thankfully this time we’ll get to hug after the show during the ‘meet and greet’. If you came to our first tour, you’ll know that we hang around until we say hello to everyone, or we are chucked out of the theatre!”

Dick and Angel finished: “Thank you for your love and support and we cannot wait to see you! Dick, Angel, Arthur & Dorothy.”

The post was accompanied by a promotional photo with Dick and Angel joined by their son, Arthur and daughter, Dorothy.

Their new UK tour includes 32 dates as the family hit the road next year.

The announcement comes after reports emerged from Deadline that former colleagues alleged the Strawbridges “clashed with producers” with Channel 4 cutting ties with the couple.

Last year’s concluding episode of Escape to the Chateau saw more than 2.5 million viewers tune in to watch how the family would say goodbye to their beloved project.

Tickets for Dick and Angel’s Forever Home tour are on sale from June 15 and are available to purchase here.
