Our Yorkshire Farm star Amanda Owen has revealed she and ex-husband Clive still work together, and things are now easier since their split.
The couple found fame on the Channel 5 programme, which follows them and their family navigating life at Ravensear, near Richmond in North Yorkshire.
Last June, Amanda, 48, and Clive, 68, who had been married for 22 years and share nine children, announced that they would be separating.
But in a new interview, Amanda has revealed they’re making things work and still working together.
‘People assume that because I’m separated from my husband, Clive, things are harder, but in fact it’s the opposite,’ she shared.
Amanda went on to explain: ‘We have two farms that are basically next door to each other, so it’s close enough for it to be useful, but far enough for us to have space.’

She continued to The Times: ‘Whatever our personal situation, there’s a farm to run and nine children to look after so we’re just working together, making it happen.’
Shortly after announcing their split, Amanda opened up about how ‘tough’ it has been separating from Clive in the public eye, but said life has to carry on ay the farm.
Addressing the split and the public scrutiny about their marriage, Amanda explained that life had to carry on as normal amid the break-up, saying during an appearance on ITV’s Lorraine: ‘It does. That is reality.

‘It is really tough and it is a really difficult aspect of it to get across. But when you do reality it has to be just that. That means it covers the ups and downs and that can be on any level.’
She added: ‘Life carries on on the farm. Obviously there is a whole raft of things to do – nine children, a whole heap of animals. We are just working away same as before.
‘Because at the end of the day our priority remains, of course, to keep everything going. There you go, that’s how it is.
‘I felt like that needed to be out there so that people… There are new projects going on. There are exciting projects going on.’
