Our Yorkshire Farm stars Amanda and Clive Owen won themselves a legion of adoring fans as they worked on their shared land and raised a brood of nine at Ravenseat. As the news of their divorce broke yesterday, their neighbours have previously given an insight into their home life off-screen.
Patricia and Ronald Tyler have lived next to the Owens for more than 20 years, after they retired from London and moved to the Yorkshire Dales.
Since Our Yorkshire Farm took off on Channel 5 and became incredibly popular, they have been besieged by tourists desperate to get a glimpse of their favourite farming family.
Mrs Tyler told Yorkshire Live: “They are fantastic neighbours. They are there if we need them, not intrusive.
“The gamekeeper lives near as well and they are all very good neighbours – happy and content.”
The mum-of-nine assured fans they will still work together on their shared land.
“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 well-being of our children,” she added.
“We would also like to thank everyone for their support and would ask that the media please respect our privacy as we work through this difficult time.”
They share children Raven, 21, Reuben, 18, Miles, 15, Edith, 13, Violet, 11, Sidney, ten, Annas, eight, Clemmie, six, and Nancy, five.
