“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.”

The news follows Amanda being inundated with questions on her personal Instagram account asking if Clive was still in the picture as no pictures have been shared of him in some time.

Rumours had been building in the past year that the couple was experiencing some marital difficulties, and now this has been confirmed by the pair themselves.

Speaking on ITV’s morning show Lorraine at the end of last year, Amanda was asked about how she was dealing with the attention on her life in the midst of things not going so well in her relationship.

Lorraine had asked: “The show is lovely. And people have got this thing of they feel they know you and have got to know the children, the animals … There’s always a down side. Of course you’ve had that attention on your life.

“And that’s great. But then when things aren’t going that well, it can be quite difficult. How do you deal with that? When it’s quite difficult?”

She replied: “Well it is. You have your difficult moments. But you have to take the rough with the smooth. We’ve just talked about how you weather a storm [as Amanda and Lorraine had earlier discussed battling Storm Arwen].

“So we are pretty resilient in the hills. That’s all you’ve got to do.

“You’ve got to remember, the bottom line is, if you are proud of what you’re doing, you kind of sort of have to shoulder it. In other words; ‘Get on with it’. Ignore it.”

Channel 5 has since released a statement on the split, telling the Daily Express: “We respect the privacy of Amanda and Clive Owen at this time.
