The show follows the pair and their nine children on their remote sheep farm in Yorkshire, and has run since 2018.

"Clive and I have are sad to confirm that we have made the difficult decision to separate," she wrote in an Instagram Story. "This hasn't been easy, but we both believe it's the right choice for the future of our family.

"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.

"We would like to thank everyone for their support and would ask that the media please respect our privacy as we work through this difficult time. Amanda & Clive Owen."

It is currently unclear if the show will continue, though Channel 5 has issued a statement saying it will "continue" to collaborate with the pair.

"We respect the privacy of Amanda and Clive Owen at this time," a spokesperson for the broadcaster said (via ITV News). "They are very much a part of the Channel 5 family and we will continue to work with them in the future."

Last year, Amanda and Clive released a statement following speculation about their relationship, saying that they were going through a "rocky patch".

"Just like any marriage we have our stresses and strains, coupled with all the complexities of what we do on the farm and bringing up nine kids," they said at the time.
