Dick Strawbridge, 61, gushed over his grown-up son James Strawbridge, 37, as he launched his latest cookbook. The Escape To The Chateau star praised his eldest child on Twitter as he encouraged his followers to buy themselves a copy.
James shared a video of him receiving the very first copy of his book The Complete Vegetable Cookbook and shared how it was inspired by his cooking during lockdown.
In response, his father Dick retweeted the video and typed: “Well done son can’t wait to get my copy!!
“Anyone else wants a great cookbook to add to their collection or as a gift- look no further.”
Fans could not believe how much the two looked alike, as they took to the comment section.
One said: “He looks so much like you!”
Another replied: “How brilliant. Well done.”
While a third commented: “I shall keep an eye out for it.”
And a fourth remarked: “I will definitely be getting myself a copy and maybe one for each of my daughters-in-law!”
Dick is a doting dad to two grown-up children, James and Charlotte, 35, from his first marriage to Brigit Weiner.
Last year, James made an appearance on his dad’s show Escape to the Chateau as his second wife Angel Adoree threw her parents a fiftieth wedding anniversary during the episode.
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!”
Meanwhile, Dick and Angel are parents to two younger children, Arthur, seven, and Dorothy, six.
The youngsters are often pictured in cute photos on their parents’ Instagram accounts and make appearances in their family’s show.
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, but 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 homeschoolers, instead we have been working together in the garden and being creative,” she wrote.
“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.”
