"It was a Strawbridge Family decision early last year to conclude ‘Escape to the Chateau’, but we have loved every moment and, despite the many challenges, we refused to give up on our dream, and in doing so have filled the chateau with love and laughter, and, most importantly, have created the most wonderful home for our family."
The statement continued: "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."
They wrapped up the statement by saying they are "proud of who we are", adding: "We feel we must do what we believe to be correct, that is in fact what kept Escape to the Chateau unique."
Dick and Angie confirmed they have parted ways with Channel 4 but said they are "hugely grateful to them and their teams for their support and creativity over the years."
In a final note they said: "The future truly could not look more exciting and we thank you for your continued love and support. Dick and Angel xxx."
Their exit comes after claims of "bullying" and "clashes" with producers.
Following a review, a Channel 4 spokesperson previously confirmed: "Following a review, we have taken the decision not to work with Dick and Angel on any new productions in the future."
A source previously told Daily Mail: "There has been a deteriorating relationship between Two Rivers and Dick and Angel's Chateau TV for various reasons and it all came to a head."
While another source stated they are "nothing like" their on-screen personalities."
The ninth and last season of Escape to the Chateau featuring the couple aired last year and no further episodes will be added.
