Star of Channel 5’s Our Yorkshire Farm, Amanda Owen, 46, has said her husband Clive has changed since the family have been on our screens as part of their real-life documentary about their life on the farm.
Amanda said husband, Clive, 66, has “gone all posh” since the show began despite being a Yorkshireman at heart.
The couple, along with their nine children, shot to fame from the Channel 5 show that follows their lives as they live and work the land on their rural farm in Raveseat, Yorkshire.
Amanda’s popularity has seen her make regular appearances on the cookery segment on ITV’s This Morning and it was during one of these appearances that she made the comments about her husband.
The farmer was asked by the programme to go out and source local ingredients to create a family favourite to share on This Morning.
The mum-of-nine told This Morning viewers: “Last week, me and Violet baked bread and we purposely let some go stale because we’re going to be cooking rhubarb bread and butter pudding."
Amanda, as she chopped some rhubarb, explained to viewers that she needed to do it quickly as she added the sugar and water into the pan, to ensure it, "keeps its colour and keeps its shape".
The farmer continued: "That's the rhubarb poached, next is to make the Creme Anglaise. This, of course, used to be called custard but because Clive’s gone all posh, it’s now Creme Anglaise."
Once the rhubarb bread and butter pudding was baked, she poured the "Creme Anglaise" on top to finish the dish.
Amanda did not succumb to her husband’s “posh” ways as she stuck to calling it custard. She said: “I can’t sugar coat the fact this is not a health food. And this now has to be left alone to give the bread time to absorb the custard.”
Amanda’s revelation about the change in her husband “going all posh” follows her recent appearance with Escape to the Country's Jules Hudson.
The pair teamed up for the latest series from Channel 5 called Summer on the Farm – which aired on our screens last week.
Presenters Jules Hudson, Helen Skelton and brothers Rob and Dave Nicholson were on location at Cannon Hall Farm in Barnsley for the summer show.
The programme aired for a week and they invited several famous faces to join them, of which Amanda was one of them.
