‘Not an easy place to be’ Amanda Owen opens up on ‘challenging’ side of home in Yorkshire

However, Amanda was left feeling “a bit strange” fronting a show on her own without her large family in tow.

The star shares nine children with husband Clive Owen.

She explained: “It feels just a bit strange because I’m on my own. There’s nobody nipping at my heels, there’s nobody asking questions.

“That’s not to say that I don’t like being out and about with the family and the children – of course that’s great – but the old analogy, a dog being like its owner, is true.

“Because sheep dogs can’t switch off. They just want to work, their minds are buzzing. That’s how I feel.

“So many different things coming at you from so many directions. A bit of headspace is good for everyone.”

Winter Walks is available to watch now on BBC iPlayer.
