Fans support Amanda Owen

Many opened up about their heartbreak over losing their own pets and thanked Amanda for sharing the bond she had with Kate.

“So sorry for your loss Amanda. We can’t begin to imagine how devastated you must be. RIP Kate,” said one.

“So very sorry for your loss Amanda. I know that awful feeling only too well, you expect them to be awake but then you realise their presence is no longer there. Bless her, beautiful Kate,” said someone else.

A third said: “Thank you for sharing your incredible bond with her, it was such a joy to see her work and her love for you all. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing. Rest easy, Kate.”

Another wrote some beautiful words of condolence that touched many of Amanda’s followers too.

“Oh so so sad but a beautiful way for a dearly loved dog to go.

“Fast asleep.

“And she knew how much you loved her. Lie her on the heather moor where she can hear the sheep bleat around her and the skylarks sing. Wrap her in something of yours and mark her special place.

“Dog of your heart. Her work done. All is well.”

A tough time

It’s been a tough few weeks for Amanda after her ex-husband Clive landed himself a new TV show.

Clive and Amanda announced their split back in June after 22 years of marriage.

It was reported last month that Channel 5 has decided to back Clive, offering him a new TV show.

Following the news, Amanda broke her social media silence as she shared some farm pictures.

“Another day, more [bleep] to deal with,” she tweeted alongside pictures of herself working on the farm. “Good job it goes with the territory.”

Her fans rallied round to show their support once again.

“Everyone who really knows your family knows the real story anyway,” said one fan.

A second replied: “Try to ignore the press. You and your lovely family know the real story.”

Our Yorkshire Farm spin off

Channel 5 announced its Our Yorkshire Farm spin-off last month.

Our Yorkshire Farm: Clive and Reuben will focus on Clive and the ex-couple’s eldest son, Reuben, and will see them launch a digging business together.

The show, which will begin airing on December 6, will chart Clive and Reuben’s first year in business.

Daniel Pearl, Channel 5’s factual boss spoke to the Mirror and insisted Amanda was still in the channel’s future plans.

“We remain absolutely committed to the whole wonderful Owen family and hope to announce new projects with Amanda very soon.”
