Our Yorkshire Farm’s Amanda Owen took to social media last night to share an update with fans following a power outage. The 47-year-old shepherdess revealed that her family had been unable to watch their own Channel 5 show on the television because of the blackout.

“WE MISSED #OurYorkshireFarm!” Amanda wrote on Twitter, in view of her 176,500 followers, before adding several laughing emojis.

“No electricity @Northpowergrid,” she continued with an electricity and candle graphic.

“The irony of being on TV twice today @BBCBreakfast this morning & @channel5_tv #OurYorkshireFarm tonight but not actually being able to watch the tv #yorkshire #powercut #tv,” the mum-of-nine amusingly added.

Amanda also shared a short video of the family sitting by candlelight.

“So why aren’t you watching Our Yorkshire Farm?” she could be heard asking her children in the short clip.

“There’s been a power cut. These are the only lights we’ve got in the house at the moment,” her son explained.

“So there’s no television for you!” Amanda replied.

“Not tonight,” one of her offspring, sadly hit back.

The television star also shared the post on Instagram and was inundated with messages from fans, who reassured her that it had been a good episode of their programme.

“It was amazing!!! Nancy was greats with the camera,”(sic) said user luce._xx.

“What a shame, it was fantastic as always. Amazing family,” katyoliver44 added.

Sharing a similar sentiment, user issy_james_music wrote: “Awwww. Well it was amazing and full of beautiful little humans x x x greatest show on tv.”(sic)

Earlier in the day, Amanda made an appearance on BBC Breakfast and spoke to hosts Sally Nugent and Jon Kay about the new series of Our Yorkshire Farm.

She also opened up about their life in lockdown.

The Channel 5 star said that she had “handed over control” to her children in the kitchen in order to give them a taste of responsibility.

She said: “(We were) looking at how to utilise what you already had in the store cupboard and basically, I suppose, hand over a bit more control to the children.

“They started cooking, they started baking – why give them Play Doh when you can give them dough and they can make bread? You see what I mean?

“So it really was – we all had to pull together and at the end of the day, anybody who was able to come out of that period and have kids who are mentally alright, I think you’ve got to say they’ve done well.”

She went on to admit that home schooling went a bit “awry” but her children had come out of lockdown in good health and with other life skills.

Our Yorkshire Farm continues on Tuesday at 9pm on Channel 5
