Reuben Owen, the son of Amanda Owen, has opened up about his parents and said they’re both “really tough”.

The Our Yorkshire Farm star, 20, has his own Channel show coming out – Reuben: Life in the Dales – next week. Ahead of the series airing, Reuben has spoken in a new interview about his family.

He said that growing up on a farm has helped him and his family have a “plough on” attitude to life.

Speaking to the MailOnline, Reuben said: “Mum and dad were both there, working away, together, doing something with the cows. That’s how it is. Nothing has changed in that regard.

Farming away, out in the rain and snow. They are really tough, the pair of them.

“They just get on with it. They are both the same, really, they get on what whatever jobs need doing. Great role models, really, brilliant. Farming away, out in the rain and snow. They are really tough, the pair of them.”

Amanda and Clive are no longer together. They announced their split in 2022.

At the time, a statement said: “This hasn’t been easy, but we both believe it’s the right choice for the future of our family.

“Although we are no longer a couple, we continue to work on the farm and co-parent together, with our number one priority the happiness and wellbeing of our children.”

Since then, the pair have remained working on the farm and being doting parents to their children.

In his new interview, Reuben had nothing but good things to say about his parents and childhood.

He added: “It was a grand childhood. I couldn’t imagine a better place to grow up. It was great fun.”
