Channel 5 hit Our Yorkshire Farm is to be replaced by new series Beyond The Yorkshire Farm: Reuben & Clive, featuring farmer Clive Owen alongside his eldest son.
Millions of viewers have watched Clive and wife Amanda - dubbed the “sexy shepherdess” - raise their nine children over five series of the hit show, which first aired in 2018.
But the future of the programme was thrown into doubt when the couple announced their separation after 21 years of marriage this summer.
Now a brand new series, from the same production company, will follow Clive and Reuben, 18, as they travel beyond their remote hill farm in the Yorkshire Dale to launch a digging business venture together, involving groundwork and plant hire.
Launching on December 6th, viewers will see how the teenager’s unconventional childhood has prepared him for adult life, as the cameras chart the highs and lows of Reuben’s first year in business and watch dad Clive, best mate Tom and girlfriend Sarah join him on this big journey.
Channel 5 yesterday confirmed that Our Yorkshire Farm following Amanda, Clive and their brood on Ravenseat Farm will not return.
It became the channel’s highest rating factual show for its heart-warming and refreshingly honest portrayal of family life in the countryside.
C5 factual boss Daniel Pearl said: "The Owens have become everyone’s favourite farming family and millions have enjoyed watching their unique way of life. It’s fantastic that we can now all follow Reuben and Clive on their next adventure.”
Other projects with Amanda and other members of the clan are also in the pipeline. Pearl added: “We remain absolutely committed to the whole wonderful Owen family and hope to announce new projects with Amanda very soon.”
Amanda, 48, confirmed her separation from Clive, 67, with a statement in June which said: “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.”
The couple married in 2000 and appeared on ITV ’s The Dales in 2011 before landing their own show.
Since finding fame with her flock, 6ft 2in Amanda has published five bestselling books, appeared on a range of podcasts and farming shows, and become a regular guest on morning TV.
She has no regrets over letting the cameras into their lives, explaining: “We are just a normal family dealing with everything life throws at us and the programme is life as it’s happening, whether there’s someone filming it or not and that’s what keeps everybody grounded.”
Earlier this week Amanda and Clive were pictured together as they attended the graduation day of eldest daughter Raven, 21, in York.
Beyond The Yorkshire Farm: Reuben & Clive is set to launch on Channel 5 on Tuesday 6th December at 9pm.
