CHANNEL 4 has cut ties with two of its most beloved stars after an investigation was launched into alleged clashes with show bosses.
The broadcaster confirmed it will not be working with the reality couple again.
Escape to the Chateau stars Dick and Angel Strawbridge and Channel 4 have severed ties and will not be working together again.
While the precise nature of the allegations against the duo is unknown, it is speculated that the reality stars did not see eye to eye with management.
According to Deadline, who spoke to three of Dick and Angel's former colleagues, the decision came after an internal review of the situation.
A source close to the series explained the relationship between the production company Two Rivers and Dick, 63, and Angel, 44, had deteriorated.
