Amanda Owen spoke out about how she hit a "low point" on Ravenseat Farm after Storm Arwen left her family without water or electricity.
The Channel 5 star is famed for being the Yorkshire Shepherdess on the beloved family farming show – Our Yorkshire Farm – alongside her husband Clive and their nine kids.
However, Amanda's farm was recently hit by Storm Arwen – and it left the family without water or electricity.
Amanda spoke to ITV presenter Lorraine Kelly on Monday (December 6) about the impact of the storm, and how she deals with life in the spotlight.
During their chat, Amanda said: "The storm has played such a big part this last week."
"Of course," nodded Lorraine.
"What with the weather we have had…," Amanda added, saying: "We've had no electricity, no water."
Lorraine asked: "How did you get on with that storm? Were you OK?"
Amanda replied: "Well we are OK because we are all here. But it had its high points and low point – I think low point was when tea was actually fried eggs and Champagne. Being plunged into darkness, sub zero temperatures."
Lorraine praised Amanda as she said: "But you get by… somehow, you always get by,"
The shepherdess replied: "Of course."
Later on in the chat, Amanda spoke about the difficulties of being in the spotlight, given how popular her family has become through Our Yorkshire Farm.
Lorraine said: "The show is lovely, and people have got this thing where they feel they know you and the children and the animals…
"There's always a downside. You've always had that attention on your life and that's great, but when things aren't going so well it can be quite difficult. How do you deal with that?"
It comes as Amanda has landed a new TV role away from her family – as she's joined the BBC nature series Winter Walks on BBC Four.
Speaking about the show, she said: "It feels just a bit strange because I’m on my own. There’s nobody nipping at my heels, there’s nobody asking questions.
"That’s not to say that I don’t like being out and about with the family and the children – of course that’s great – but the old analogy, a dog being like its owner, is true.
"Because sheep dogs can’t switch off. They just want to work, their minds are buzzing. That’s how I feel."
