The news that Clive and Amanda Owen shocked fans of the show Our Yorkshire Farm, as they seemed such a close-knit family unit. And, with rumours circulating about Amanda in the news Clive has broken his silence on the situation.
Appearing on ITV’s Lorraine, speaking to Christine Lampard today (Thursday 13th April) he opened up about his relationship with Amanda and how the show played a part in their break up.
The Our Yorkshire Farm star the Yorkshire Shepherdess, Amanda Owen, and Clive Owen split after 21 years of marriage and nine children.
Speaking to Christine Lampard he said: “All I am hearing is poor Clive which is not right. I handled it very badly, the show was such a change in our life and I sadly made a right mess of things and had a massive part to play in our relationship ending.”
“I am ranting and raving and drinking and carrying on and there was jealousy, it was taking her away, but it wasn’t really, she was committed to our family but it seemed to eat away at me and I behaved badly towards her.
Discussing how the show played a part he continued: “Yes, and once it comes between you… we were under pressure and it was crazy and it makes you look at life in a different way.
“We couldn’t get along and we parted, it is very sad but it is what it is. I should have been supportive to her and I wasn’t.”
It’s reported that Amanda is dating businessman Robert Davies, who she met five years ago when he got involved in their farming business.
It was reported that a source said: “he travels everywhere with her and they’ve become seemingly inseparable.” Birmingham Live, reported that a representative for Amanda declined to comment.
Clive is back on our screens with his spin-off show Beyond the Yorkshire Farm with his son Reuben. The pair have started their own digging business and the show has received widespread positive reviews.
