Our Yorkshire Farm star Clive Owen’s daughter Rosie – from his first marriage – has revealed she thinks her relationship with her father and stepmother Amanda is ‘beyond repair’.
Rosie, Clive’s daughter from his first marriage, grew up on Ravenseat, the farm featured on the Channel 5 show about the family, and said she can’t even bear to drive past the farm on the Yorkshire Dales anymore.
Speaking to The Sun, Rosie said she feels her relationship with her dad, who stars on Our Yorkshire Farm alongside Amanda and their nine children, took a turn for the worst after he began dating his now-wife.
She realised her father was in love when she found a Valentine’s card from Amanda, who was then 21, addressed to Clive, then 42, signed ‘Love, Amanda’ – sparking the demise of her relationship with her family patriarch.

By that point, Rosie was staying with her mother during the week and would visit Ravenseat on the weekends where she met Amanda for the first time.
Amanda met Clive in 1996 when he was already divorced from Rosie’s mum, after she arrived at his farm as a 21-year-old trainee shepherdess.
Rosie was 13 when Clive and Amanda married and told how she cried ahead of the big day, where she had been asked to be a bridesmaid.
She said: ‘On the eve of the wedding I started crying because I was worried about losing my dad. It was awful. I used to feel really self-conscious, thinking, “What’s wrong with me? What have I done? Am I saying and doing the right things?”‘

Rosie added she no longer visits Ravenseat and claimed Clive has not since invited her over or asked why she stopped coming.
Viewers previously watched Clive and Amanda bring up their nine children, six boys and three girls, on ITV’s The Dales with Ade Edmondson in 2011 before Our Yorkshire Farm began in 2018.
The couple are parents to Raven, 20, Reuben, 17, Miles, 15, Edith, 12, Violet, ten, Sidney, nine, Annas, seven, Clementine (known as Clemmie or Tilly), five, and four-year-old Nancy.
Rosie told how she tried to watch the show before but it made her burst into tears.
She said: ‘It breaks my heart because it is like watching a past that I haven’t been in for years. It’s like a family that I’d love to belong to but I just don’t.’

Rosie, who has two daughters aged 16 and six and a son, 13, said she feels like she missed out on having a male role model in her life and added that her children call Clive by his first name rather than granddad.
Amanda is thought to have amassed £1million and Rosie, who works as a barmaid for minimum wage, is said to feel like she has been left out financially.
She married her husband, a factory worker, in 2018, with Clive walking her down the aisle.
He had to leave before the reception so did not give a speech, with the publication noting that Amanda was not invited to the ceremony.

Rosie said it sometimes pains her to see Clive and Amanda being loving parents to their children, saying: ‘They are living this wonderful life with all this success and I’m here with scars that run deep.’
She praised her mother, who is now living in a care home after recently becoming ill, and said she overcompensated for Clive not being around.
Rosie said she would like to be involved in her father’s life again but doesn’t think it will happen.

She also said she sometimes dreams about Amanda and imagines them having a ‘normal relationship’ but doesn’t think that will ever happen either.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Amanda Owen for comment.
In season four of her show, which premiered earlier this year, Amanda emotional as she revealed her eldest son Reuben has left the farm for a mechanic apprenticeship.
In April, Amanda blamed parents for today’s ‘snowflake’ generation of children who cannot look after themselves.

The sheepherder suggested today’s youngsters had ‘no sense of independence’ or work ethic. ‘The snowflake generation, they can’t do anything,’ a harsh Amanda told the Radio Times.
‘They don’t know anything about how to look after themselves, or a work ethic, all of that has gone out of the window. It’s our fault as parents.
‘If you put your child on a pedestal, with no sense of independence, and think you have got to entertain them the whole time, what can you expect?
‘I rebuff swaddling children, because I want to see them go on and do well and be themselves, whatever that is. I feel like it is their life and all I do is prepare them.
‘What we do on the farm, hopefully, is preparation’.
