Escape To The Chateau’s Angel on how agent sold Dick Strawbridge to her before meeting him

“Sophie had asked me if The Vintage Patisserie would host her 40th birthday party and she said to me, ‘Look, I have got this guy I think you will love; he’s fresh on the scene’ – because Dick was just starting to be dating again after his divorce – ‘and he has got this energy and he is really efficient,’” Angel said.

“So on Sophie’s birthday, Dick was looking quite dapper, and I was there in my vintage Zandra Rhodes dress and my pinny, and I saw him and literally blushed from head to toe.”

Dick found it amusing that being efficient was one of his selling points.

“How romantic,” he said of the compliment, before revealing that he found her “gorgeous”.
