Amanda Owen, 46, is best-known as the Yorkshire shepherdess in her Channel 5 show Our Yorkshire Farm. The star has opened up about being floored by viewer response to her series, admitting it feels like having “separate worlds” colliding.

Mum-of-nine Amanda will soon be appearing in a brand-new series of Our Yorkshire Farm on Channel 5.

However, the farmer has revealed she still finds it shocking how people have responded to her series.

She said: “It’s just still such a funny thing to imagine that us just doing our thing and leading a very ordinary life is going out there into people’s homes.

“It feels in a way that it’s happening somewhere else to somebody else.

“I can’t explain it. It feels like it’s two different separate worlds that collide via the TV screen.”

The shepherdess opened up about this when she was a guest on the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on BBC Radio Two earlier this morning.

This conversation arose after Zoe read out a response from a viewer who had used what they’d learnt on the show.

They said: “Would you please ask Amanda to thank her kids Edith and Clemmy for the lambing lessons, which came in very handy last Friday.”

The viewer went on to describe how when she was cycling, she noticed a lambing sheep had got in trouble.

The sheep seemed to be giving up but used Amanda’s tip of opening her mouth and using grass to help bring her back to life.

She then helped the sheep give birth and it bonded with the lamb immediately.

Amanda said of the message: “What a story! That is amazing.

The farmer will soon be back on screens as the latest series of her show begins next week.

There will be 20 new episodes of the series starting on Channel 5 on Tuesday.

They’ll follow Amanda, her husband Clive Owen, and their nine children living on the farm.

The shepherdess also recently spoke about how she raises her kids to be independent, hitting out at the “snowflake generation”.

She told this week’s Radio Times: “The snowflake generation, they can’t do anything.

“They don’t know anything about how to look after themselves, or a work ethic, all of that has gone out of the window. It’s our fault as parents.

“If you put your child on a pedestal, with no sense of independence, and think you have got to entertain them the whole time, what can you expect?

“I rebuff swaddling children because I want to see them go on and do well and be themselves, whatever that is.”

Our Yorkshire Farm returns Tuesday at 9pm on Channel 5.
