Our Yorkshire Farms Clive Owen aruges with son in row over digger at Ravenseat

Our Yorkshire Farm star Clive Owen clashed with teenage son Reuben in the latest episode of the Channel 5 show.

The farmer, 67, hired a digger after the hay meadows were in danger of being flooded.

He needed to control a river than runs through the family's farm where he lives with wife Amanda and their nine children.

Clive explained to viewers: "It’s just a constant battle with nature, you know, trying to protect what we’ve got."

As Reuben joined the project and helped manoeuvre the huge machinery, dad Clive tried to instructed the teen on how best to get the work done.

Clive said: “I think you should be blocking it there."

Reuben replied: “It doesn’t matter. We’re going to dig it out!”

The farmer then ripped into his son in the TV series as they tackled the building project.

As Reuben directed the digger, Clive sarcastically shouted: "Well, you’ve got to kind of turn it, you know.”

The youngster hit back: “We’re going to make it wide, it will be wide to there. The more narrow it is the faster it will flow."

Clive shouted out again: “Put it in front" and getting frustrated, Reuben replied: “Do you want to direct me?”

The frustrated dad quickly snapped back: “You want some big ones right here where it’s going to do some good.”

His 17-year-old son said: “Yeah, because we’re going to go right across there aren’t we? And put all that in there?”

Clearly losing his patience, Clive ranted: “Okay, but you want them in front, your big ones. Just get it in, just pull the b****r in."

Despite the tensions, Clive insisted he worked well with his Reuben, saying: “We work well together.

"We don’t agree on everything, but that wouldn’t do if we did.

“We’ll hopefully find the best way of doing something."

After the pair had cooled down, Clive was full of praise for the teenager.

He admitted there was "plenty of arguing" and said: "It’s amazing when you have a digger like this and all that power at your disposal.

“I mean, before we couldn’t have dreamt of tackling a job like this and now we can.

“(Reuben) works things out, he has a good head on his shoulders and he can see a job and see a solution. He’s a good lad.

"Although I’m the parent and they do, I believe, what I tell them, we’re also mates. It’s great fun to be with him."

Reuben added: "Me and my dad get along quite well. Farming’s never massively been my thing, but digging and construction and machinery is."
