The Yorkshire Shepherdess announced she and her husband of 22 years, Clive Owen, were parting ways in June. While they are no longer a couple, they still work together on their 2,000-acre farm. Amanda Owen was spotted without her wedding ring when she was invited onto Monday’s instalment of Steph’s Packed Lunch on Channel 4.
The mother-of-nine admitted to host Steph McGovern she finds being single after two decades a “weird situation” to be in.
However, Amanda revealed she and Clive were on good terms as they continue to raise their children and tend to their farm animals together.
The former couple fell for one another back in 1995 when Amanda visited Clive’s farm to ask for some help.
They share children Raven, Reuben, Miles, Edith, Violet, Sidney, Annas, Clemmie, and Nancy together.

Amanda and Clive’s life on Ravenseat Farm has been documented for several years as part of the Channel 5 series Our Yorkshire Farm.
Speculation started to mount last year about their relationship ending and Amanda addressed the rumours on her Instagram in June.
She penned at the time: “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.
“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.
Although she seemed optimistic during her chat with Jeremy, she admitted to Lorraine viewers the split has been tough.
She told Christine Lampard who was stepping in for Lorraine Kelly: “It’s really tough and it’s a really difficult aspect of it to get across, but when you do reality [TV], it has to be just that.
“That means it covers the ups and downs and that can be on any level.
“So life carries on, on the farm, obviously there is a whole [range] of things to do.”
Amanda added: “I have nine children, a whole heap of animals, and we are just working away the same as before because, at the end of the day, our priority remains to keep everything going.”
Amanda has not disclosed whether there will be another series of Our Yorkshire Farm coming out.
The heartwarming documentary series first landed on Channel 5 in November 2008.
Our Yorkshire Farm episodes are available to watch on My5.
