Dick and Angel recently addressed their decision to bring the show to an end after six years and also spoke about their reported fallout with Channel 4. 

Speaking to Christine Lampard while appearing on ITV's Lorraine in October, Dick explained: "It's interesting because we were on Lorraine at Christmas last year talking about the show coming to an end. We made a decision that last year was going to be the finale and we told everybody. So, when the stories came out and everybody started talking about the show ending, it wasn't news, it was something that had happened a long time ago in the past."

Angel added: "Our Queen said, never complain and never explain. And that was the best way because we had already made that decision as a family to bring the show to an end."
