Escaping to a grand chateau in the middle of the French countryside is pretty much a dream come true for anyone.

And one half of the show’s presenting duo, Angel Adoree, has done just that herself.

Angel hasn’t always been designing curtains, cushions, wallpaper and furniture, though, so here’s everything you need to know about Escape to the Chateau’s Angel Adoree!

Who is Angel Adoree?

The public came to know Angel when she appeared on Dragon’s Den in 2010.

Angel is an author and also founder of The Vintage Patisserie.

She launched her first book in 2011, The Vintage Tea Party Book, and three more followed.

Although Angel clearly has a knack for all things style related, she actually trained and worked as a fully qualified chartered accountant.

How old is Angel Adoree?

Angel is 41 years old.

Her biography details how she always had a passion for vintage items.

It reads: “At an age when most girls were stocking up on Clearasil and dreaming of ponies, Angel was already out thrifting.”

Angel puts her talent in handy work to good use in season 2 episode 3 of Escape to the Chateau: DIY when she teaches the art of decoupage on a 1950s family dressing table.
