Our Yorkshire Farm star Amanda Owen, 46, has detailed her ascent to stardom, which came from a chance meeting on her Yorkshire farm, Ravenseat. The mum-of-four revealed that after sharing cups of tea with walkers who passed by the farm, she met "amazing, bright intellectuals from all over the world," including TV presenter Julia Bradbury and soon became good friends.

The traditional Yorkshire Dales farm is located in the middle of the famous, coast to coast, Alfred Wainwright walk.
