Escape to the Chateau fans can’t overcome Strawbridge kids transformation

Escape to the Chateau fans couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw the transformation of Dick and Angel Strawbridge’s children.

Arthur and Dorothy, the couple’s children, are well known to viewers of the much-loved Channel 4 series, which has seen cameras follow their parents’ journey from the UK to France as they bought and renovated a beautiful 19th-century chateau.

The Strawbridges had a busy Easter full of celebrations as Angel turned 44 on Thursday and daughter Dorothy turned eight the following day.

The DIY-loving family marked the occasion with a healthy trip to the beach.

They snapped some photos while enjoying the sun, sea and sand in a series of photos the couple posted on Instagram.

Birthday girl Dorothy could be seen beaming with her brother Arthur as the pair held their spades in the air.

Fans were amazed at how much Arthur and Dorothy Strawbridge had grown up

Another photo showed Dick helping his children dig a huge hole in the sand.

The photos were captioned: “Mr and Mrs Canute…Keep the tide! A few days at the beach…it’s still birthday week…just!

“Thank you for all your sweet messages. Felt the love completely”.

Fans couldn’t believe how big Arthur had become

In addition to the obligatory birthday wishes, fans were stunned by the Strawbridge kids and how much they’d grown up since the last series ended.

One follower commented: “Dotty is getting as big as Arthur! Two great kids.”

A third echoed: “Wow, the kids are growing up really fast!!!”

“They grow so big, so fast!!!” wrote a fourth, while another added: “Gosh, Arthur and Dorothy are getting big all too fast.”

Dorothy turned eight the day after her mom’s birthday

Earlier this year, Dick had to speak out over claims that growing up in a castle has left his young children ‘spoiled’.

The TV personality and his wife Angel insist that life in the beautiful Chateau de la Motte-Husson hasn’t stopped their kids from being sober.
