Dick Strawbridge’s son hints at who will inherit incredible Escape to the Chateau home

James Strawbridge has hinted at who will inherit his father's incredible Escape to the Chateau home.

Dick Strawbridge and his wife Angel bought the sprawling French castle back in 2015 for around £280,000. They, along with their children Dorothy and Arthur, then invited Channel 4 viewers along for the journey as they documented their epic transformation of the chateau.

Dick's firstborn James, 40, and Charlotte, 38, come from his first marriage to British engineer Brigit. Which child would eventually inherit the chateau has been a hot topic for years but James has finally revealed that it will fall into the hands of his half-siblings, back in 2022.

At the time James told the Express: "When you go to the chateau the work being done with the renovation is quite quick compared to when you look at a house with a 500-year history.

"It's definitely more intense at the chateau than at these houses I visit [for my new series]. Arthur and Dorothy's great-grandchildren in many years' time and like one of the next generations will probably have a bit more of a chilled-out vibe."

He also said Dick and Angel were then still in the process of "establishing" the Neo-Renaissance style chateau.
