Our Yorkshire Farm stars Amanda and Clive Owen break silence on 'rocky patch' in marriage

Amanda Owen, 47, and Clive Owen, 66, who have been married for 21 years, said they are experiencing a “rocky patch” and have “stresses and strains” like any other relationship. The couple decided to speak out after a source claimed to The Sun that she had been spending nights away from the family home.

In a joint statement, they said: “With the TV show and the books we’ve always aimed to show the reality of life on the farm, and just like any marriage we have our stresses and strains, coupled with all the complexities of what we do on the farm and bringing up nine kids.

“We’re a normal family and we’ve never said our marriage is perfect.

“Unfortunately the constant intrusion into our lives from the media has amplified a rocky patch that we’re going through.

“We ask that the media respect our privacy as we work through this.”

At the time, he was divorced with two children.

She previously said getting together romantically took some time as they had been friends for a while. 

Clive’s eldest daughter Rosie, 34, spoke out about being distant from her dad in an interview last month.

She candidly said: “Millions tune in to see this idyllic farm on the TV but they don’t know the heartache behind it.

“They are living this wonderful life with all this success and I’m here with scars that run deep.”

Rosie added she was worried about losing her dad on the day of their wedding, where she was a bridesmaid.

Reflecting on when she first met Amanda, the barmaid said she was “pleasant”.

“She was sitting in the kitchen with my mother, talking. I can’t remember what they were talking about.

“I think my mother introduced me to her and I thought, ‘Wow, she’s beautiful’.
