Dick Strawbridge, 61, and his other half Angel Adoree, 43, were back on Channel 4 on Thursday evening after the last season of their hit renovation show aired back in December. The spin-off of Escape to the Chateau, Make Do and Mend saw the husband and wife speaking with their guests over a video call as they tried to assist with some of their fans’ home decoration ventures. However, it was during a sit down with their first set of guests that the father-of-four told his spouse he didn’t want to hear about her plans for the project.

The guest told Dick and Angel they wanted to bring some of their loved ones, who have since passed, back into their lives.

They spoke about a piano that all the generations both present and past have enjoyed playing on and they wanted to bridge the two memories together.

After hearing the story, the mother-of-two turned to her husband and said: “This is a bit of me because it excites me.”

“And if you need a hand building anything, I am here,” her other half replied, an offer which she thanked him for.

“I am thinking of a theatre…” the home renovator added but within seconds, she was silenced by her spouse.

“Shush, I don’t need to know because I’m going to get a headache thinking about where you’re going with this,” Dick said.

“I can just see a full production,” he declared as his wife was seen chuckling away at his response to her ideas.

Following the introduction from the guests, Angel got to work thinking about how she could help them with their request and she had a perfect idea.

The craftswoman told the guest to collate a number of old photographs and get them printed onto some fabric so they could be used to make a variety of household items, including a cushion for the piano stool.

I don’t need to know

As the episode continued, Angel called with the guests once again to see how they were doing and if they were following her advice.

They had gone above and beyond anything the mother-of-two could have imagined as they used old photographs to decorate a number of items in their home.

Not only did they transform the piano stools, but they also got crafty by changing up some of the cushion patterns in their living room.

This provided a whole new element of sentimentality to the home as they could be reunited with their lost ones on a daily basis.

Taking to Twitter, those watching at home were pleased to see Dick and Angel back on-screen after a six-month hiatus.

One wrote: “Oh gosh, tears and smiles, can we have #escapetothechateau every day, every week for our wellbeing?”

Another posted: “Just had to explain that I don’t watch #escapetothechateau to find things I can do … I watch it to escape to a beautiful world…it’s fantasy TV, on all levels (and I love it).”

A fourth remarked: “It’s so good to see a new episode of #EscapeToTheChateau @dickstrawbridge and @angeladoree it feels like reunited with family after Covid.”

This season of Make Do and Mend was filmed in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, just as the first was last summer.

Not only are the pair communicating with their guests over video call but they are unable to get involved with the renovations either.

Speaking about the idea behind the show, the couple said: “It’s been great fun working on this year’s Escape to the Chateau: Make Do and Mend. It’s been wonderful watching our contributors grow in confidence and we all share the pride when the job is done.

“Make Do and Mend came from the mountains of emails we received last summer asking for guidance on a real mix of projects.”

Escape to the Chateau: Make Do and Mend airs Thursday at 9pm on Channel 4.
