Jeremy Clarkson On Whether Richard Hammond and James May Will Join Him For Clarkson’s Farm Series 2
After fans have been clamouring for more, Jeremy Clarkson has confirmed that a second series of Clarkson’s Farm is in the works. Following his experiences on Amazon Prime’s The Grand Tour, the car enthusiast was able to live out what he’d been wanting to do for a long time at Diddly Squat Farm in Chadlington.
Now, this week, he’s revealed that a book on his experiences has been published and is now able to be purchased by fans who want even more detail from his farming experiences.
On the Diddly Squat Instagram page, he wrote the following:
“Farming is brutal, incredibly frustrating and dangerous.
“The weather is always against you, and animals intent on either escaping or killing themselves.
“This book tells the story of how amazingly well I managed all aspects of farming, with hardly any help at all.”
One fan asked if his fellow Grand Tour presenters would be seen in the upcoming series.

Jeremy quickly responded: “Not a chance!!!!”
The three have collaborated on shows such as Top Gear and The Grand Tour for over 20 years, and they’ve previously worked on solo projects during their time working together. Richard produced a new show this year, Richard Hammond’s Workshop, while James May launched a new series by taking up culinary arts, as well as a travel series that was met with incredibly positive reviews.
According to Richard, they don’t offer each other comments on their work when they’re not working on The Grand Tour.
He said: “No, they do separate projects. We never… we do our own things.”
“I wouldn’t ask for their feedback, it would be rude if they did,” he added.
James then added the following, jokingly saying they “hated each other really”.
“First and foremost, we are work colleagues, we work together,” he said.
“There is a rapport obviously, it wouldn’t work if you didn’t have that.
“But, we’re not friends as in you’re friends with your old school mates, your gang you’ve grown up with for many years.”
He did say, however, that he enjoys having them around for one reason: “They wind me up”.
Jeremy also fronts the famous quiz show, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire on ITV. On top of this, he’s also recently revealed his intention to open a restaurant on his land. In his column for The Telegraph, the presenter appealed to readers asking them how he might transform his farm produce into delectable meals for customers.
“I see a kitchen full of pies and gravy and wipe-down chairs, with Bad Company playing,” he joked.
