Taking to Instagram, the mother-of-nine, 47, revealed that there was one particular task at Ravenseat which was proving to be “hard work” at this time of year, before the former The One Show host reached out to her with a supportive message as he said that he was facing the same struggle.

Sharing her worries with her 193,000 Twitter followers, she began: “So yesterday it snowed a little bit and that was bad enough. ,” she began.
“Then it started to snow a lot more,” she lamented.
Adding a snowflake emoji, Amanda continued: “Shifted the yows that were closest to lambing into the barn.
“The majority aren’t due for another week or so, so hoping that Spring will return quickly. #yorkshire #weather #snowing #snow #spring”.
She included photos of the dramatic scenery, which included sheep gazing around at the chilly, snow-covered surroundings.
