Dick and Angel's children's experience during lockdown

Writing on the family's Facebook page in April, Angel gave an insight into their children's experience during lockdown. She explained that they had enjoyed helping to teach Arthur and Dorothy while they were at home from school, although admitted they weren't trying to become teachers.

"With the children at home we’ve enjoyed sharing knowledge – we haven’t tried to mimic their formal education, or tried to be fully fledged home schoolers, instead we have been working together in the garden and being creative," she wrote.

What's more, the star revealed the time in quarantine had helped Dick find the time to finally get writing. "And Dick is finally going to write some children’s books that he has been testing on his four children, and finessing, for over 30 years. We are embracing the fact that we have time to look after ourselves."

The professional chef, who had previously appeared with his dad and mum Brigit in the BBC series It's Not Easy Being Green in 2006, helped to create a dream menu for Angel's mum and dad.

Fans were quick to swoon over the talented cook on Twitter, with one writing: "I didn't think this programme could get any better and then elder son comes to visit," while another wrote: "Oh my, he's gorgeous. Channel 4 give him his own show immediately!"
