Our Yorkshire Farm’s Amanda Owen was a guest on James Martin’s Saturday Morning earlier today where she opened up about her marriage. The shepherdess discussed how marrying husband Clive Owen was a “steep learning curve” as she wasn’t used to life on the farm.
James was asking the star about how they first met when Amanda made the admission.
She said on the ITV show earlier this morning: “I was milking cows over in Cumbria and I was sent on a mission to go and go and borrow a tup.”
Amanda then teased how James would know what a tup is, given he also comes from Yorkshire.
The shepherdess continued: “It is a ram.”
“With us both coming from non-farming backgrounds we were kind of peas in a pod really but we didn’t know that at the time,” she said.
Clive added in the episode: “I do remember this six-foot-something woman knocked on the door.
“I was very taken with her. You couldn’t not be.”
Amanda was on James Martin’s show to promote her new book The Yorkshire Shepherdess.
The new book features pictures from the farm, as well as recipes she uses.
