The Grand Tour presenter bought his farm in 2008 during the days of Top Gear, where he contracted it out to a local farmer from Chadlington. This farmer retired in 2019 so Clarkson decided to take over the farm himself, renaming it to Diddly Squat Farm. Kaleb, who has since shot to fame, assisted him in this, and the two quickly became one of the most powerful presenting pairs on Prime Video.
Today, Cooper talked to This Morning about his experiences on Clarkson’s Farm and working beside one of the largest presenters in the TV industry.
This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby asked the farmer if Jeremy has finally adapted to farming:
“Er, no,” he answered.
“To be honest, how I could describe it now is that he has little knowledge and that is very dangerous.”
Both This Morning presenters, Holly and Phillip Schofield, burst into laughter at this blatant comment, with Kaleb adding that Jeremy is, “getting worse”.
Kaleb recently revealed through his Instagram account that the show is nominated for a National Television Award (NTA) after being told by the show’s production company.
“I was like, I’m going to that, it’s the National Tractor Awards, why wouldn’t I go to that?
“They told me that they were actually the National Television Awards.”
Admitting this was “strange”, he added that he potentially wasn’t going to be attending the awards ceremony which is being held in Wembley, London – a city he doesn’t like to travel to as we saw in the first series of Clarkson’s Farm.
“I am surprisingly braving it and taking the trip for the experience, but I a slightly nervous and might back out at the last minute,” he added.
Nominated in the Factual Entertainment category, it won’t be a surprise if Clarkson’s Farm won this category thanks to the presenters’ huge social media accounts and fan bases that will be inclined to vote.
Kaleb is also included in the Expert category alongside talented names such as Sir David Attenborough, Gordon Ramsay and Lord Alan Sugar. Kaleb explained in a recent video that he would be voting for Attenborough.
