Jeremy Clarkson says outraged Kaleb left farm after 'stupidest idea yet'

Jeremy Clarkson has told how his Clarkson’s Farm co-star Kaleb Cooper abandoned Diddly Squat for a week after hearing the Grand Tour host’s ‘stupidest idea yet’.

The 62-year-old TV presenter shared details of his latest scheme to become a pig farmer, prompting dissent from his 24-year-old farmhand.

Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy's latest project comes after the farm’s Diddly Squat shop shut its doors for a month following the backlash for comments Clarkson made about Meghan Markle.

The Top Gear presenter, 62, wrote a column detailing his hatred of the Duchess of Sussex where he said he dreamed about her being 'paraded naked through the streets' while people 'throw lumps of excrement at her'.

Now Clarkson has taken to his column and explained that he has become a pig farmer, writing: “Cheerful Charlie Ireland, my land agent, says this is the stupidest idea I've had yet and wants no part of it.”

He went on to note that an exasperated Kaleb had also decided to leave Chipping Norton after hearing the news.

“Kaleb was so unpleased that he got into his pick-up truck and went to Cornwall for a week,” Jeremy continued.

Jeremy explained why he felt his ‘logic was sound’ as he laid out his plan for the pigs in his latest article for The Times, suggesting that pigs are ‘much cheaper’ than other livestock.

He also argued that the large broods the pigs would produce would be more financially beneficial.

Describing how pigs ‘hosed out’ piglets like ‘machine gun bullets’, he wrote: “You buy ten pigs for a few quid and three months later you have ten million. That's profit, right there. Pure, naked profit.”

Jeremy added that he would also be saving money by feeding his un-harvestable potatoes to the pigs rather than letting them rot.

However, he confessed that, as well as Kaleb, his land agent wasn’t impressed even after he explained his plans in full.

“Charlie responded to this argument by rolling his eyes and going home,” he wrote, “Which meant that Lisa and I had to spend a week or two learning an all-new language: pig.”

Prime Video has revealed that Clarkson’s Farm will return to the streaming platform in February, when the Diddly Squat shop will also reopen.

The usually outspoken Clarkson has remained noticeably silent on his social media since admitting he had 'rather put his foot in it' with his Meghan Markle comments.

Breaking his silence on the backlash, Jeremy told his 7 million followers: "Oh dear. I’ve rather put my foot in it. In a column I wrote about Meghan, I made a clumsy reference to a scene in Game of Thrones and this has gone down badly with a great many people.

"I’m horrified to have caused so much hurt and I shall be more careful in future."
