Amanda Owen discusses co-parenting with ex-husband Clive amid amicable split

Yorkshire shepherdess Amanda Owen says she and estranged hubby Clive are on amicable terms.

Clive, 68, was in the same room as she promoted her new TV show following their split after 22 years of marriage.

She joked: "This was my cunning plan so that he can't accuse me of saying anything awful about him."

Down-to-earth Amanda, 48, said the relationship had simply run its course but said they were still both fully involved in the lives of their nine children.

Amanda - best known for starring alongside her family on Our Yorkshire Farm - told Radio Times : "It's just how things are, pressures, all the rest of it."

The pair, who run a 2,000 acre farm in the Yorkshire Dales, announced the end of their marriage in June.

While their two eldest kids are adults, the rest are aged between 16 and seven.

Amanda scoffs at the suggestion she and Clive, are "co-parenting". "Call it that if you want but it's just a buzzword, really. It just means we take it in turns to shout at the kids."

She's about to launch her first solo TV project for More4 - Amanda Owen's Farming Lives - in which she visits other farms to see how they are modernising and adapting to survive.

Clive, meanwhile, has already made a series for Channel 5 with his eldest son Reuben.
