On Twitter, Amanda typed: “I’ve been feeling ‘under the weather’ & narky but Raven landing back has put a spring in my step.”(sic)
The TV farmer proceeded to list all the tasks Raven had completed on the farm while celebrating her milestone birthday.
Amanda continued: “She milked Buttercup, lambed a breech presentation, shoved a prolapse back from whence it came (a sheep’s btw) all on her 21st birthday!”(sic)

“We thought it was an interesting story, Amanda former model who is obviously from Yorkshire but had left for a period of time.
“So I spent a week with the Owen’s, and I knew then that they were an extraordinary family, I found them inspiring, uplifting, amusing, funny, all of those things.
“Obviously, the success of her and her family on my series turned into this extraordinary series that she now does but has so many fans, and I totally understand it.
