Kelvin Fletcher's wife Liz compared to Our Yorkshire Farm's Amanda Owen with 'men swooning'

Kelvin Fletcher’s wife Liz Marsland was left shocked after being compared to Our Yorkshire Farm star Amanda Owen with 'men swooning'.

The couple made a huge decision as she decided to move onto a farm with their two children during the first coronavirus lockdown after he quit acting on ITV hit soap Emmerdale.

The pair landed their own BBC One show, Kelvin Fletcher's Big Farming Adventure and it has been a massive hit among viewers.

The former soap actor and his family were followed by BBC cameras during his first few months working the land as he got to grips with his new career.

It’s safe to say the pair got stuck in as they have been seen learning how to shear sheep, drive a tractor and tend to the land on their farm near the Peak District.

Kelvin even invited pals and former Emmerdale co-stars Danny Miller and Adam Thomas to give him a helping hand.

The six-part series has come to an end and to mark a successful start to their farming life the couple hosted a summer party and up to 200 guests attended.

As expected even before the show first aired they were compared to rival farming shows Jeremy Clarkson's Amazon Prime show Clarkson's Farm and Channel 5’s hit show Our Yorkshire Farm.

Most recently the pair appeared on Kate Thornton’s podcast White Wine Question Time: Kelvin Fletcher & Liz Marsland.

During the episode, Kate wasted no time in comparing Liz to Amanda Owen as she said: "I tell you what else I've noticed that's happened.

"Liz, tell me if you've felt the vibes, but I mentioned to a couple of people this week that we were chatting.

"Obviously, people are able to follow your adventures on BBC every week with the show. Men started swooning, a bit like they did with Amanda the Shepherd.

She continued: "There was a lot of 'Oh my god that Liz, she's amazing.'"

Liz can be heard in hysterics at the comparison which left her rather shocked as she remarked: "Is there?"

Kate replied: "It's like you're a country pillar." Liz, still shocked said: "I haven't seen it."

Kate continued: "Maybe it's because you live in the middle of nowhere surrounded by sheep."

Liz, talking to her husband, said : "Kelvin, you better watch out, I mean I will take it but I'm not feeling the sexiest right now, so I will take it."

Amanda stars on Channel 5's favourite Our Yorkshire Farm with her husband Clive and nine children at Ravenseat Farm.

Following in Amanda's footsteps, the couple are expanding their family as Liz is currently pregnant with twins.

She shared the baby news with Dan Walker and Sally Nugent on BBC Breakfast in January.

The childhood sweethearts got married in 2015, having first met as children, and then reuniting around a decade ago.
