OUR Yorkshire Farm's Amanda Owen has hit back at a viewer who brutally claimed she's "not a star".
The shepherdess, 46, slammed a critic who told her "stay true to yourself" after sharing some pictures from her busy week on Twitter.
Amanda – who lives on a remote farm in Swaledale – made a name for herself on the social media platform, which led her on to land her very own observational documentary series.
Since Our Yorkshire Farm aired in 2018, the star has become a huge hit with fans as the telly series has explored her life on Ravenseat Farm with her husband Clive and their nine kids.
The mum-of-nine has gained a huge following over the past few years and loves to keep her followers up to date with what she get's up to.
Yesterday Amanda shared some snaps from his busy week – which consisted of her at work with her animals, as well as a showbiz event with Jeremy Clarkson.
Stay true to yourself people fell in love with your life as you all are, not as a showbiz star.
She captioned the 171.8k followers: "Time for a catch up, it has been a super busy time.
"Been wearing more than a few different hats metaphorically speaking. #shepherdess #yorkshire #alltrades #multitask #justdoit."
However one fan wasn't impressed with her post and told her: "Stay true to yourself people fell in love with your life as you all are, not as a showbiz star."
But Amanda wasn't having any of it and hit back with a tweet to defend herself.
Until food production, countryside management is valued we do what pays the bills.
The telly star replied: "Shearing Sheep driving tractor to make hay to feed Sheep, signing books (about Sheep), public speaking (about Sheep). Serving tea to folk who watch programme & read (about Sheep).
"As @JeremyClarkson has highlighted until food production, countryside management is valued we do what pays the bills."
Other fans flocked to support Amanda in the replies section.
One replied: "Don't need to justify yourself Amanda. We think you are all fab in our house and don't think you've changed but very much stuck to your roots."
Another said: "Do what you have to do for you and your family Amanda x."
A third chimed in: "You are an amazing woman."
Her comment about Jeremy Clarkson comes after the former Top Gear highlighted how much “more respect” people should have for farmers.
The presenter – who recently starred in his own documentary Clarkson's Farm – followed in the footsteps of Amanda and attempted to run his own farm.
Fans of the Channel 5 show will be happy to hear that the new season of Our Yorkshire Farm is a few months away.
It was dramatically pulled off air earlier this year and a drama series about Anne Boleyn was put in its place instead of the show's finale.
Amanda recently confirmed to Yorkshire Live: "There is a new series coming. It will be in the autumn. I don't know exactly when as I am the last person to know," she told
"I do know that those episodes are done and there is more filming going on at Ravenseat."
Our Yorkshire Farm airs on Channel 5.
