Amanda Owen, 48, pictured with 'businessman lover' Robert Davies, 71
Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda Owen, 48, is seen with ‘businessman lover’, 71, who she knew for at least FOUR years before her marriage collapsed
Amanda Owen has been pictured out with her new businessman lover Robert Davies, ten months after confirming her separation from husband Clive.
The Our Yorkshire Farm star, 48, looked cosy with the web designer, 71, as they arrived at Folkestone Leas Hall by car on Tuesday, where she had been due to perform her one woman show about farming in the Yorkshire Dales.
Wrapping up in a navy coat, she layered the number above a matching dress while sporting heavy-duty boots and her light brown locks in bunches.
Clive, meanwhile, cut a smart figure in a light blue shirt and an indigo coat as he supported his new partner.
It comes after MailOnline uncovered a photo of the pair taken four-and a half years before her marriage collapsed.

Amanda and her estranged husband Clive hired web designer Robert to launch a website to promote her work after she shot to national prominence.
Amanda and Clive, 68, were married for 21 years and have nine children but announced their separation last June.
In a Facebook post from December 2018, Mr Davies, 71 posted a picture of himself with Amanda and writes: ‘Have you been watching Channel 5’s series ‘Our Yorkshire Farm’ about the Yorkshire Shepherdess? I really enjoyed working on her website earlier this year, and very happy that she loves it!’
In a response to a message, he described Amanda as ‘amazing.’
In an earlier post from January 2018 Mr Davies even boasted about having lunch with Amanda and Clive at their Ravenseat farm in North Yorkshire.
Posting a picture of the couple, he wrote: ‘Had lunch with these two at their farm in Upper Swaledale. 1,000 sheep, 9 kids and very soon a brand-new website for the Yorkshire Shepherdess.’
He also posted a message he received from Amanda in which she writes: ‘I forgot to thank you for making the epic trip in coming to me. That was appreciated. I love the website, I know that j (sic) am hard work and that it has been a long haul but you have achieved the near unachievable in crafting something that I think reflects me. With just a few minor tweaks we will be good to go. Happy . Amanda.’
Businessman Robert runs It’seeze Web Design Scarborough, which is based in the North Yorkshire seaside town and designed Amanda’s website, ‘yorkshireshepherdess.com’ which was launched in 2018.

He lives in Malton, North Yorkshire and his company has worked with a number of businesses in the area helping them to establish an online presence.
On his company’s website, Mr Davies is described as having 40 years of experience working in marketing for some of the UK’s biggest brands and boasts that he has the ‘expertise to help your company successfully develop its online presence.’
It adds: ‘It doesn’t stop there however, as Rob will provide continued support and assistance to ensure that you’re always getting the most out of your website long after it goes live.’
Amanda is said to be ‘inseparable’ with Robert and the couple spent the weekend together in Folkestone, Kent.
Pictures obtained by The Sun showing them together on the south coast, where Amanda was starring in ‘an evening with’ fan event.
A source said: ‘Amanda and Robert have known each other many years — long before her split.
‘Now he travels everywhere with her and they’ve become seemingly inseparable.’
A representative for Amanda was contacted by MailOnline at the time.

Amanda and Clive still run Ravenseat in the Yorkshire Dales, a remote working farm at which they have been tenants for more than 20 years.
Before their split was confirmed last summer, neighbours revealed to MailOnline that Amanda had moved out of the farmhouse and into their rental property down the road in Swaledale, while Clive had been staying in the farmhouse.
Amanda has since moved back to the farmhouse though, revealing in an interview this month with the Sunday Times that she and Clive have ‘two farms that are basically next door to each other, so it’s close enough for it to be useful, but far enough for us to have space.’
‘Whatever our personal situation, there’s a farm to run and nine children to look after so we’re just working together, making it happen.’
Speaking to the Radio Times recently Amanda gave her own matter-of-fact take on the split: ‘Look, there are two simple facts: if he thought I was brilliant, and I thought he was brilliant, then we wouldn’t have separated,’ she pointed out.
‘It’s a fact, isn’t it? But, you know what, that’s not unique, it’s just how things are, pressures, all the rest of it.
‘But we have nine kids, with associated friends, girlfriends, and we just have to get on with it.’
Late last year Clive’s new show Beyond The Yorkshire Farm: Reuben and Clive premiered and saw him launch a digging business with his son.
