Amanda Owen’s son Reuben has taken over her Instagram account to set the record straight on his week-long social media absence.
Our Yorkshire Farm star Reuben, 18, posed for a sweet selfie with his mum, 48, out in the countryside.
For the snap, the Yorkshire Shepherdess donned a zip-up parka jacket which featured a fluffy hood.
Her 18-year-old son stood next to her with his thumb up, wearing a black waterproof jacket, a dark hoodie, and a chainlink necklace.
In the caption of the post, shared with Amanda’s 536,000 fans, Reuben wrote: “I’ve nicked my mum’s phone as mine got ran over by a bulldozer and I’m now locked out of my Instagram for anyone wondering why I’ve disappeared.
“@reubenowen7 be back soon,” he added.
The post explains the groundworker’s week-long Instagram hiatus — his last post being a series of images and videos relating to his work latest project.
Since posting yesterday (Saturday, 15 July), fans of the family have flooded the pair’s selfie with positive sentiments.
One fan wrote: “So happy to see you both! We’ve missed seeing you (sic) and your gorgeous family, keep rising above the darkness you were a light for a lot of us during COVID and beyond, and a lot of people love you.”
A second echoed with a similar comment: “Lovely pic! Unlovely negativity. As Thumper the Disney rabbit said, ‘If you can’t say something nice then don’t say nothing at all!’ Yes I know it’s bad English but that’s the quote (sic) it’s so very true. Be kind or be quiet!”
Another Instagram user said: “Really miss your programmes. After a very hard few years. Losing my grandson etc etc. (sic) Programmes like yours make my day. Keep being (sic) you all keep happy xx”.

“Oh Rueben poor phone didn’t stand a chance,” said another. “Mum to the rescue, great to see you both.”
