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 had 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.”

She added: “In other words; ‘Get on with it’. Ignore it”
