Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda Owen recalls moment ex-husband Clive was left 'raging'

The Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda Owen told of a moment during her marriage where she left ex-husband Clive 'raging'.

Amanda, 48, and Clive, 67, announced their decision to split earlier this year after 22 years of marriage. The couple share nine children together.

Now, Amanda has recalled one particular moment during their marriage that made Clive ask: "Why can't you just be normal?"

In her book, Celebrating The Seasons, she wrote about how she once tried to run a fell race for the first time.

Amanda decided to run the course the night before because she was worried she'd fail in front of the spectators.

She said that Clive was standing on a pile of rocks in the middle of a river as she approached it when he became worried about how long she was taking.

Then, Clive ended up losing his balance and falling in and Amanda said: "To say he was raging was an understatement."

She said Clive later yelled: "Why can’t yer just be b***dy normal?"

Meanwhile the couple's son Reuben has been showing off his romantic side, with his mum sharing a sweet gesture he made to a mystery girl.

The Our Yorkshire Farm star, 48, took to Instagram on Monday to share her joy at spending quality time with her family as they entered a vegetable competition over the weekend.

The snaps showed members of the family posing next to a "mutant marrow", but fans were soon distracted by one picture of 18-year-old Reuben carving a heart out of the vegetable.

He then proudly held the carving up for the camera as he smiled next to an unknown lady, leaving some people to speculate about if he was dating.

"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."

Amanda admitted that adjusting to life at their Ravenseat farm was "challenging" following the split.
