Amanda Owen and her husband Clive split in 2022, but before their separation, the stars invested in a new property, Anty John's. In a brand-new update shared by their eldest son Reuben, it appears that renovation work has finally begun on the dilapidated farmhouse.

Our Yorkshire Farm star Reuben took to Instagram to share a series of photographs alongside his famous mother as he lent a helping hand with the property project.

WATCH: Clive Owen makes rare comment over split

The 18-year-old has his own groundwork business and he often shares glimpses into his work on his Instagram page.

"Setting up ready to mate a start at Anty Johns. #tryingnottomakeamess," he wrote underneath the images, which included pictures of a tractor and digger.

In one of the photographs, his 49-year-old mother posed alongside a Land Rover with her top fashioned into a crop top. Another snap showed her looking on at the existing farmhouse with a visibly collapsed roof, lack of windows and an overgrown garden.

It is unknown if the Yorkshire Shepherdess has now taken on this project without her former partner or if she will be working with Clive to convert the home.

The Owens bought the house in 2020 and it is very close to their existing abode of Ravenseat Farm, which they rent.

The plans for the Grade II listed property include making it into a two-bedroom home with a living room, kitchen, shower room and utility room.

According to The Yorkshire Post, the farmhouse has been disused for around 60 years so it will be a major project.

As the house will only have two bedrooms, it is pretty much impossible for Amanda and her nine children to move in, so it seems that they will remain at Ravenseat.

Why did Amanda Owen close Ravenseat?

It's been a rollercoaster year for Amanda and fans were left disappointed in July when she announced the closure of her Yorkshire farm. At the time of its closure to the public, Amanda opted to post a simple message which read: "Ravenseat Farm is closed to visitors until further notice, so, unfortunately, we are not serving cream teas. Thank you for your understanding. Amanda."

It is not clear why she closed the doors, and it has not be clarified since the original statement. 

Earlier this week, Amanda gave a rare social media update, posting a series of incredible family photographs.

The doting mum shared a string of breathtaking sunset images featuring her adorable brood. "The place to be [wave emojis] #yorkshire #homesweethome," Amanda wrote as her caption. Her dedicated followers loved the update and welcomed her back to social media with open arms.

At the time of their separation, Amanda shared a statement. "Clive and I are sad to confirm that we have made the difficult decision to separate," she noted, before adding: "This hasn't been easy, but we both believe it's the right choice for the future of our family," she said.

Then, in April this year, Clive opened up for the first time about his split from his wife of 21 years, admitting that he had a "massive part" to play in the breakdown of the marriage. "It's a tough time for Amanda now and so I thought it was only right, I don't do social media or any of that so I sort of disappear."

He continued: "I handled it very badly, it was such a change in our life and I sadly made a right mess of things and I had a massive part to play in our relationship ending, a massive part to play."

He also added: "When all this went on, I was ranting and raving and drinking and carrying on. It was taking her away I think, and it wasn't. She was committed and we were all committed but it seemed to eat away at me and I handled it badly and behaved badly towards her. I should have been supportive and I was doing the absolute opposite."
