Angel Strawbridge : "No, I know, but when people are stressed, which, let me tell you, shall we start by f***ing that I went onto your Instagram and have had some f***ing... and saw some of the pictures that you’ve put up. Well, let me tell you that there’s some on there that are so f***ing dark that if you can’t see that as a artist…”

Strawbridge continued: "What about the one with the chef with the big moustache and the big shoulders? Who is that inspired by when you’re f***ing working at the chateau? Just tell me that and then you can f***ing leave! And this is me f***ing angry because I think you’re a f***ed up little c***, actually. Now this is me angry! I just wanted to know where you both were, OK? Now, do not work in this chateau and then post dark, weird pictures that I find quite insulting. And do not smirk. You know what? You can just f*** off."

Following Channel 4’s decision to end the show, the Strawbridges posted a statement on Instagram which read: "We know there are lots of stories in the press right now. It’s not worth us even trying to comment or give context, because anything can be made into a good headline. We understand.

"There are two sides to every story and from the incredible support we have received, most of you know that. We are proud of who we are, and we feel we must do what we believe to be correct, that is in fact what kept Escape to the Chateau unique, and whilst we have indeed parted ways with Channel 4, we are hugely grateful to them and their teams for their support and creativity over the years."
