Amanda and Clive Owen seen for the first time since split as they continue to run farm

Amanda Owen has been seen for the first time with husband Clive since the pair announced their split earlier this week.

Despite ending their marriage after 22 years, the Our Yorkshire Farm stars have continued to run their farm together despite 'living apart for months'.

The former couple, who share nine children together, were seen having deep chats outside a cafe at their farm in the Yorkshire Dales on Saturday.

Amanda, 48, was snapped sitting on a quadbike as she spoke to her estranged husband while hard at work on their now famous Ravenseat Farm.

Dressed in her farming gear, Amanda appeared in cheerful spirits as she and Clive engaged in conversation.

Amanda and Clive had been married since 2000, tying-the-knot five years after they met in 1995.

On Monday, the TV star shared the news that she and Clive, 67, were going their separate ways in an emotional post on Instagram.

She wrote, in a joint statement: "Clive and I have are sad to confirm that we have made the difficult decision to separate.

"This hasn't been easy, but we both believe it's the right choice for the future of our family."

The statement continued: "Although we are no longer a couple, we continue to work on the farm and co-parent together with our number one priority the happiness and well-being of our children."

Amanda and Clive thanked everyone for their support and asked for privacy during this "difficult time".

The statement was signed by both Amanda and Clive.

There had been rumours that the couple were having a rocky time in their marriage for most of this year and Channel 5 star Amanda appeared on ITV morning show Lorraine to address the speculation in December last year.

At that time there had been reports for weeks which suggested that the couple were on the rocks and that Amanda has been living away from Ravenseat Farm in a separate rented property as they review their future together.

Lorraine asked Amanda at the time: “The show is lovely. And people have got this thing of they feel they know you and have got to know the children, the animals. There’s always a down side. Of course you’ve had that attention on your life. And that’s great. But then when things aren’t going that well, it can be quite difficult.

“How do you deal with that? When it’s quite difficult?”

Amanda replied: “Well it is. You have your difficult moments. But you have to take the rough with the smooth.

“We’ve just talked about how you weather a storm [as Amanda and Lorraine had earlier discussed battling Storm Arwen]. So we are pretty resilient in the hills.

"That’s all you’ve got to do. You’ve got to remember, the bottom line is, if you are proud of what you’re doing, you kind of sort of have to shoulder it. In other words; ‘Get on with it’. Ignore it."
