Mum-of-eight Amanda Owen, 47, has been spending time away from the family at their nearby rental property, it has been claimed
Our Yorkshire Farm stars Amanda and Clive Owen are reportedly “battling to save their marriage” after 21 years together.
Mum-of-eight Amanda, 47, has been spending time away from the family at their nearby rental property, it has been claimed.
Meanwhile 66-year-old Clive is said to be “desperate” to repair their relationship.
It comes as Amanda, who is the star of hit Channel 5 show Our Yorkshire Farm, is due to release a new book on her family life in the countryside.
A source told The Sun: “It’s incredibly sad. Amanda and Clive are two hugely popular figures here in the Dales, and no one saw this coming.
“Clive loves Amanda to bits and adores her, and fears the marriage may be failing even though he desperately doesn’t want it to. He fears they will divorce.”
The insider continued to suggest that Clive “reckons the image of them playing happy families is a load of rubbish” and that this will be their last TV series so they can put their children first.
They continued to say that Clive wanted them to stay together for Christmas but after then “the decision is very much in Amanda’s hands”.
The Mirror has reached out to the couple’s reps for comment.
Amanda’s publicist previously told the publication on October 12: “Amanda and Clive have not parted ways and Amanda has not moved out of the family home.”
However, Amanda was reportedly seen near their rental property, with a source suggesting that the split has “become the talk of the village”.

They continued: “Obviously everyone around them hopes they can work things out, and 21 years of largely happy marriage won’t end up playing out in the divorce courts.”
The insider branded it a “PR nightmare” as it wouldn’t be “on brand” should they divorce.
Amanda and Clive first shot to fame in 2011 with their children Raven, 20, Reuben, 17, Miles, 15, Edith, 12, Violet, ten, Sidney, nine, Annas, seven, Clemmie, five, and Nancy, four on ITV’s The Dales with Ade Edmondson.
They went on to be offered their own show in 2018, which became a ratings winner for Channel 5.
