Our Yorkshire Farm’s Amanda Owen recalls horrifying moment she 'lost a child'

Amanda Owen has admitted that she lost one of her nine children while visiting The Great Yorkshire Show, one of the biggest agricultural events in the calendar.

The 47-year-old breakout star of Channel 5 docuseries Our Yorkshire Farm has revealed on This Morning that she had a "very stressful" moment when she faced the horror of not being able to find one of her children.

Speaking to Matt Baker from the four-day show, the Yorkshire shepherdess said that bringing all the family to the event can prove to be a logistical challenge, especially with so many youngsters to keep an eye on.

Amanda told Matt: "Can you remember what it was like for me coming here with the kids?

"I remember losing a child here at the Great Yorkshire Show! It’s very, very stressful.

“I think there’s 140,000 people expected to come to the show.”

Matt replied: "It doesn’t surprise me, though. This is the best agricultural show in the world, in my eyes.”

This was Amanda's first TV appearance since she shared the sad news that she had separated from her husband Clive Owen.

The pair had become viewer favourites on Our Yorkshire Farm and while they will continue to co-parent their nine children, they would now be heading on different paths in the future.

Amanda made the announcement on Instagram last month, in which she wrote: "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.”

Amanda continued: “Although we are no longer a couple, we continue to work on the farm and co-parent together, with our number one priority being the happiness and well-being of our children.

“We would like to thank everyone for their support and would ask that the media please respect our privacy as we work through this difficult time.”
