Amanda Owen speaks out after ex Clive’s Our Yorkshire Farm rival spin-off finally airs

Our Yorkshire Farm star Amanda Owen has spoken out for the first time since her ex husband Clive launched his own reality series without her.

Spin-off show Beyond Yorkshire Farm, starring Clive and the former couple's son Reuben, launched on Channel 5 this week.

The first episode saw the father and son taking on new ventures together amid the backdrop of the stunning Cumbria countryside as Reuben got to grips with learning the family business.

In one of his first lessons, Reuben was seen digging a series of pools with his old man.

In one touching scene, doting dad Clive asked Reuben about his new relationship with girlfriend Sarah, who had the audience in hysterics as she revealed her fear of frogs.

After fan favourite Our Yorkshire Farm was sadly axed following the Owen's split, Channel 5 has confirmed the station will work on projects with Amanda in the future.

After Clive's independent series debuted, Amanda broke her silence on Instagram.

The mum took to social media to share a number of pictures of her children enjoying a dark and misty night on their farm.

"The stars at night,” penned Amanda alongside a number of star emojis and the hashtags #DarkSkies, #NightOwls and #Yorkshire.

She later added the rather cryptic comment: “Let there be light.”

Amanda and Clive announced their shock split earlier this year going their separate ways after 21 years of marriage.

There was more bad news for fans of Our Yorkshire Farm in November this year as Channel 5 announced the show had been officially cancelled in the wake of the marital split.

Following the break-up, Amanda moved away from Ravenseat.

Discussing the reasons behind the breakdown of her marriage on Instagram, Amanda said: " Clive and I 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.

"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."

Channel 5 have hinted at "future Owen Family projects" adding that they will be revealed in due course.
