Amanda Owen has delighted viewers as Our Yorkshire Farm returned to Channel 5 last week. Taking to Twitter afterwards, the mum-of-nine admitted the family recently suffered a fail behind the scenes of the reality show as they battled dire weather conditions.

The 47-year-old reacted to a social media user who questioned the TV star about the latest episode.

The show’s first instalment saw the Owen family tackle a harsh winter in lockdown, with thick snow and blizzards.

Amanda and her husband Clive battled through at the highest point of the farm looking for their lost sheep.

The Owens struggled to find a number of animals who were in danger buried somewhere in the snow.

The Twitter account holder, Made In Yorkshire, wrote: “Great programme last night.

“Could you not use a drone with a heat sensitive camera to search for the sheep lost in the snow?”

In view of her 176,000 followers, the famous shepherdess admitted she made several attempts to find the sheep with the flying equipment but ran into problems.

Amanda replied: “Actually we did attempt drone footage previously during a particularly brutal weather spell.

“The wind chill was -15, the drone fell from sky as it froze mid-air, landing in the deep snow saved it from being irreparable.”

Viewers flocked to comment on the post, as Debs Lass remarked: “Obviously you tried everything to find those lost sheep. Those conditions were awful. I think you all did amazing in conditions some wouldn’t even open the door to look at let along tramp miles looking for sheep.”(sic)

Andy Day chimed in: “Ha – we said exactly the same thing watching the recording tonight. So lovely to hear how your children encourage their siblings in whatever they’re doing. Can hear you and Clive in their phrasing. Your family-schooling is just the best schooling.”

Helen Palmer said: “I have seen a small flock of sheep herded using a drone.”

Fortunately, Amanda eventually found the sheep once the snow had gone and all the children came together to look after them.

The weather conditions were so bad that the Owen family shot the entire episode themselves.

In an earlier tweet, Amanda shared some sad news, detailing what happened during the second lockdown.

She shared some pictures that were taken during the same time period.

They showed the mum-of-nine and her dog at work on the hills in the snow, which was up to their knees.

Alongside her snaps, she wrote: “Conditions were dire but Kate (& also Bill RIP) has the ability to be able to find buried sheep under the snow.

“She knows what I don’t. A good sheepdog makes all the difference. #sheepdog,” she went on to add, referencing her late sheepdog as well as her current one.

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