To which Kaleb interrupted: ‘You mean, Kaleb’s Farm?’ 

Jeremy continued: ‘No. The big team are back, cheerful Charlie, Lisa, Gerald and the fetus in the tractor.’ 

The first series of Clarkson’s Farm followed an intense, backbreaking and frequently hilarious year in the life of Britain’s most unlikely farmer, Jeremy.

The success of the show was such that fans spent up to four hours queuing outside his new farm shop.

Jeremy bought the plot of land in 2008 and Clarkson’s Farm follows the presenter’s highs and lows of tackling the 1,000 acre working farm.

Viewers saw Jeremy and his rag-tag band of agricultural associates contend with the worst farming weather in decades, disobedient animals, unresponsive crops and an unexpected pandemic.

The presenter recently revealed he was ‘the happiest he has ever been’ and that he ‘loved every second’ of filming the new hit show.

His Diddly Squat shop is described as a ‘small barn full of good, no-nonsense things’ on its official website.

And farmhand Kaleb was dubbed ‘the real star of Clarkson’s farm’.

He has helped the former Top Gear presenter and amateur farmer get to grips with his 1,000 acre farm in Oxfordshire, with the pair becoming an unlikely TV double act.

The Manchester United fan, who recently had a baby son Oscar with his girlfriend Taya, Ieft school at 16 and did four years as an apprentice on a cow farm before moving to Clarkson’s Diddly Squat Farm to drive tractors.

But such is his success, and thanks to the army of 80,000 loyal Instagram fans built since the show began, Kaleb’s is now being tipped for his own TV career – and he admits he would even consider going on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!.

When the idea of making a series was raised, Cooper was ‘a little bit nervous’ and did not know how it would pan out.

However, he is not afraid to speak his mind and often calls out Jeremy for his mistakes, including buying a tractor that is too big and building a barn that is too small.

He regularly brands the former Top Gear host a ‘f***ing idiot’ and has been called a ‘rural halfwit’ in return.

Kaleb said: ‘He never listens to me. I tell him to do one thing and he does the complete opposite. I get very annoyed when he messes up. That is genuine.’

He says he was never intimidated by the TV because ‘I knew what I was doing and he didn’t’.

But underneath the jokes there is a genuine friendship between the pair, with Kaleb adding: ‘We just laugh all the time, our banter and sense of humour are very much the same. He’s a great chap.’
