The young farmer has made a return to the small screen this week

Reuben Owen has made a well-received return to television this week following Channel 5's decision to cancel Our Yorkshire Farm.

The channel confirmed it would continue to work with the Owen family beyond the hit show, however, with the young farmer and his dad Clive fronting Beyond the Yorkshire Farm earlier this year.

Amanda Owen's ex-husband has since left the spin-off show, however, leaving his son to take the reins but fans haven't been treated to new episodes in quite some time.

However, they have been able to catch up with Owen's on-screen endeavours this week after the young farmer announced he'd be starring in Harvest on the Farm.

Airing each night on the channel, Helen Skelton and Jules Hudson front the farming show as they take a look into all the latest issues facing UK farmers as well as offer some handy tips to those in the agricultural world.

Posing alongside fellow contributor and farmer Dave Nicholson, Owen teased his appearance in an Instagram post.

"Harvest on the Farm tonight!!!. Some big tractors. @farmer_dave_nic," Owen penned as he and Nicholson smiled beside a large tractor.

Inevitably, it didn't take long for his followers to share their excitement at seeing Owen back on screens - even if it was away from his family's farm, Ravenseat.

"Well done Reuben it was nice seeing you back on tv tonight with farmer Dave xx," one fan commented on the post.

A second expressed their delight as they typed: "Nice to see you back on t.v," followed by a love heart emoji.

"Loved this great to see you all again," another added while a fourth echoed: "Great to see you on the program. Well done."

Elsewhere, a fifth weighed in: "Was great seeing you on the tele again tonight reuben you did a great job can't wait for tomorrow nights." (sic)

Owen joined Nicholson during Tuesday's episode as the pair headed to Essex to help farmer Chris Philpott during a rollercoaster harvesting season.

Battling against the weather, Owen and Nicholson worked through the night to help the farmer in need, although things were far from plain sailing as the pair did their best to get the crops out of the ground.

In the end, the young farmer and his Harvest on the Farm co-star managed to pull it off, working into the early hours of the morning in order to avoid adverse weather and make sure the Philpott's wheat was good to go.

While Owen's appearance on-screen was lauded by many, it comes during a time when many fans have been left baffled by his mother's mysterious decision to close Ravenseat to visitors.

The Yorkshire Shepherdess is still yet to publicly confirm why, but alongside her son, has taken on a new work project by renovating their dilapidated property, Anty Johns.

Sadly, fans won't be able to see the latest happenings unfold in new Our Yorkshire Farm episodes, with Daniel Pearl, Commissioning Editor for Factual at Channel 5, explaining why last year.

He said [via Express.co.uk]: “The Owens have become everyone’s favourite farming family and millions have enjoyed watching their unique way of life.

"It’s fantastic that we can now all follow Reuben and Clive on their next adventure. We remain absolutely committed to the whole wonderful Owen family and hope to announce new projects with Amanda very soon."
