    In last night’s show, the family gathered to throw Violet a surprise birthday party at Ravenseat Farm.

    Amanda baked two cakes with her youngest, Nancy, quattro, Clemmie, cinque, and Annas, Sette, while Owen took Violet on a trip to town for her big day.

    As the family sat down to watch his daughter blow her candles, he reminisced: ‘Violet was born in hospital, I can always remember going there to take her home, and they wouldn’t let me take her home because she hadn’t had her ears checked.

    ‘And I always said there was absolutely no need because you could see she was absolutely perfect, and of course, Violet was perfect and we came home.

    ‘And she’s listened to me ever since,’ ha riso, as Violet joked she could not hear what he was saying.

    Owen also shared a very sweet moment with Edith, who is two years older than Violet, and well on her way to become a teenager.

    The father-of-nine gathered his six youngest children, aged four to 12, and told them to close their eyes before stepping into the family barn and emerging with a Border Collie puppy in his arms.

    He then put the puppy in Edith’s arm, because she was going to be the one looking after the puppy’s care.

    Encouraged by her siblings, Edith decided she would be calling the puppy Sallywhich can be shortened to ‘Sal.

    Viewers said they loved to see Clive’s paternal side with the children.

    ‘It’s been a great episode Clive & his family instead of Amanda Amanda Amanda,’ uno ha detto.

    ‘I’ve enjoyed this episodeit’s been nice to see Clive with the kids more,’ disse un altro.

    The episode comes as rumours of marital woes have been plaguing the couple since it surfaced thatt they have been living apart for months.

    La settimana scorsa, the couple’s neighbours told MailOnline the pair had been living apart for months after she ‘got caught up in the spotlightof her Channel 5 programma.

    Amanda moved into their rental property down the road from Ravenseat Farm in Swaledale, where Clive has been staying in the farmhouse, villagers said.

    La coppia, known as the ‘Kardashians of the Countryside’, are said to be ‘battling to save their marriage’ dopo più di 21 anni.

    Clive, who was married to another woman for 13 anni, is understood to be ‘desperateto repair their relationship and ‘fearstheir marriage will end in divorce.

    It was feared they had recently started living apart but their neighbours claim it was common knowledge months ago. This is despite the Yorkshire Shepherdess still plugging her new book about family life on TV shows.

    The couple live on Ravenseat Farm with their nine children. Pictured from left to right: Annas, Sette, Viola, dieci, Edith, 12, Corvo, 20, Amanda con Nancy, quattro, Clive con Clemmie, sei, Reuven, 17, Miglia, 15 e Sidney, nove

    In a joint statement given to MailOnline, Amanda and Clive Owen said: ‘With the TV show and the books we’ve always aimed to show the reality of life on the farm, and just like any marriage we have our stresses and strains, coupled with all the complexities of what we do on the farm and bringing up nine kids.

    ‘We’re a normal family, and we’ve never said our marriage is perfect.

    They added they were going through a ‘rocky patchin their marriage.

    It’s thought Amanda has moved into their holiday home The Firs, which is at the top of Upper Swaledale, in a valley and surrounded by five acres of meadows and pasture.

    The six-bedroom cottage is accessed by a private road behind three gates and dates back to at least the seventeenth century.

    It has a number of original features, including stone flagged floors, beamed ceilings, whitewashed walls and a traditional black Yorkshire range.

    The couple rent Ravenseat Farm and its land from billionaire Robert Miller, who is the co-founder of DFS (Duty Free Shops) and is the father of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece, Princess Alexandra von Fürstenberg, and Pia Gettythe ‘itgirls of the 1990s.

    Amanda ha incontrato suo marito in 1996 quando era già divorziato con due figli, dopo essere arrivata alla sua fattoria come pastorella apprendista di 21 anni.

    Amanda grew up in a traditional three-bed house with her parents and one sibling in the large market town of Huddersfield.

    A 6 piedi 2 pollici, la bionda è stata incoraggiata a seguire lo stesso percorso di carriera della madre modello, ma odiava i vestiti e il trucco che doveva indossare.

    Ha lasciato la sua comoda vita di città per lavorare nelle fattorie in tutto il paese, ma è quando ha bussato alla porta di Ravenseat Farm che ha trovato la sua vocazione.

    Molti dei suoi figli aiutano in fattoria quando non sono a scuola – o viaggiare da e verso poiché il viaggio dura un'ora e mezza a tratta.

    ‘In order to make a big family work they all need to toe the line. It’s not about child labourit’s about pulling together,’ Amanda told the Daily Mail in an article in 2018.

    With the nearest shop so far awayand the risk during winter that they could be snowed in for weeksthe TV star buys food in bulk, and manages to feed her large family for just £130 a week.

    Their water is free, channelled from the stream on the moor, and they heat the house and water with a roaring fire, which burns every day no matter what the weather.

    Our Yorkshire Farm airs on Tuesdays at 9pm on Channel 5.
