Our Yorkshire Farm's Amanda Owen has revealed the hidden sentimental reason why she wears a set of "manky" bangles.
The 46 year old, who recently hit out at trolls after they criticised her for wearing tight dresses, appeared on a recent BBC Radio 4 interview to discuss the jewellery and explained that she's worn them since she was just a teenager.
Prior to her life as a farmer, Amanda not only had a brief stint as a model, but she also worked at a Bangladeshi takeaway, where she formed a strong bond with a young girl who was related to the family that ran at the restaurant.
Amanda explained that the pair grew very fond of each other as she taught her English.
During their friendship, the young girl gifted the wire bangles to her, which now hold sentimental value to her.
"It's a link to my femininity whilst working on the farm," Amanda told the host of The Poet Laureate Has Gone To His Shed, Simon Armitage.
She continued: "They do break, they're only wire and yes, they're bent and manky and my arm is all discoloured underneath but they're sentimental to me."
The TV personality, who recently turned into a covergirl as she starred in her own calendar, went on to explain that her fans often worry that the jewellery will get caught in machinery on the farm.
"If they were going to, they would have done by now!" she laughed the comments off.
Simon then joked: "Unless you began with three arms!" while Amanda went on to reveal her children use the jingling sound of the bangles as an "early warning system".

"They hear me coming and rush to put away or clean or throw out the window whatever they were doing!" she said.
It comes as Amanda recently revealed that she "no longer has contractions" during labour after having nine kids with 67 year old husband Clive.
Writing in her new book The Yorkshire Shepherdess, she explained: "The only way I know that I am in labour is because I start feeling a bit off, grotty, queasy, not quite right."
She gave further context, adding: "Because I spend my time calving cows and lambing sheep, it seemed to me that having a baby was going to be the most natural thing in the world.
"I am no earth mother, hippy type, but I am a great believer in nature."
