Jeremy Clarkson has mentioned that the thousands of people visiting his Diddly Squat Farm Shop have caused huge issues for individuals who were trying to reach their local health centre for Covid-19 vaccinations.
In a sneak peek of the upcoming Clarkson’s Farm Season 2, premiered today on Prime Video, the host of The Grand Tour sheds light on the issue of the excessive traffic which damaged his reputation around his local village of Chadlington.
It’s been of no surprise that the Diddly Squat Farm Shop has rocketed in popularity since the release of the first season. And since this, it’s been much more popular than Jeremy ever imagined.
“Last week, the primary road was congested for three hours, making it impossible for people to attend their vaccine appointments and even emergency response crews were unable to pass through,” Jeremy said during a sneak preview for the show.
As he spoke over footage of the long lines of traffic, he added: “I never expected such a large turnout.”
The preview also showcases plans for the much talked about restaurant on the sprawling 1000-acre farm, which was recently ordered to close by the Cotswolds council due to the heavy traffic it generated and the effect it had on the location.
In season two of Clarkson’s Farm, the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire host will continue his endeavours to operate his farm in Chipping Norton. The third season, set to air in 2024, may be the final one, as rumours suggest Amazon has severed ties with the presenter after his controversial column in The Sun regarding Meghan Markle.
Tune in to Prime Video today for the return of Clarkson’s Farm.
