Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda Owen, 47, has revealed that although many of her fellow farmers enjoyed watching Jeremy Clarkson’s docuseries, Clarkson’s Farm, she wasn’t tempted to join them. Amanda, who appears in her own reality show on Channel 5 alongside her husband Clive Owen and their nine children, entitled Our Yorkshire Farm, admitted that she hasn’t tuned into a single episode of Jeremy’s smash hit Amazon Prime Video series.

However, the star explained that she didn’t snub the programme for “any reason”, other than the fact that she tends to not watch TV.

Amanda made the admission during a new interview, in which she was quizzed on whether she unwinds by enjoying TV, films or music.

The television personality explained: “I’ve always listened to music, and the best thing is at Ravenseat you can turn that volume right up and nobody’s going to complain. 

“I love Goldfrapp, electronica, a bit of trance. 

“God, I sound like I’m so stuck in the past now. I don’t watch any TV at all. 

“I just never think to switch the telly on.”

The Guardian then asked Amanda whether she had made an exception to her anti-TV stance for Clarkson’s Farm.

The shepherdess replied: “I haven’t seen a single one of those. 


“Not for any reason; it’s just because I don’t watch TV.”

Despite not watching Jeremy’s series herself, Amanda deemed that it “must have been all right”, as she’s heard good things about it from other farmers.

She added to the publication: “But it must have been all right, because farmers liked it.”

Amanda’s comments come after Jeremy previously shared his hopes to enlist her help with his mischievous flock of sheep.

In his column for The Times back in June, Jeremy penned: “It’s nice having them around and the lambs are great and they make nice noises, but God almighty, they’re a pain in the a***.

“I might sell them all to that Yorkshire shepherdess woman.”

Jeremy went on to admit that he was struggling to see the benefits of keeping the sheep on his Diddly Squat Farm.

The former Top Gear presenter added: “Sheep are complicated to keep and they make no money.

“When you shear a sheep, it costs you £1.45 to have it sheared and the wool is worth 30p.

“It’s not really a business proposition.”

Jeremy also took the opportunity to praise Amanda in his column for The Sun.

He gushed: “The Yorkshire Shepherdess, I’ve got the greatest respect for the way they live as I know that part of the world and it’s brutal in the winter up there, it’s not easy.”
