Jeremy Clarkson says furious Kaleb aborted farm after ‘stupidest idea yet’

Jeremy Clarkson says Kaleb Cooper left his farm after he told him about his ‘stupidest idea yet’.

The Grand Tour host has had a few interesting plans since he opened Diddly Squat farm a while back.

But the 62-year-old has revealed that his latest brainwave was one too far for his right hand man, Kaleb Cooper.

In his column for the Sun, Clarkson explained that he wanted to expand operations at the farm down in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire.

However, when he told Kaleb about it, the young farmer packed up his things and went to Cornwall for a week.

So what provoked such a reaction, you ask? Pig farming.

As well as making him a fortune, the presenter said he would also save a few quid by feeding his un-harvestable potatoes to the pigs rather than letting them out to rot.

Clarkson said: "You buy ten pigs for a few quid and three months later you have ten million. That's profit, right there. Pure, naked profit.

"Cheerful Charlie Ireland, my land agent, says this is the stupidest idea I've had yet and wants no part of it.

"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."

Adding: “Kaleb was so unpleased that he got into his pick-up truck and went to Cornwall for a week."

But we think it's safe to say Kaleb's had other things on his mind in recent weeks other than pig farming, as the 24-year-old announced a couple of weeks ago he was getting married.

Sharing the happy news with fans on Christmas Day, Cooper wrote on Instagram: “She said yes! 2022 has been an amazing year. This definitely tops it off.

“I honestly can’t wait for 2023 and all the following years after that. @tayaaaxx your my best friend as well as the love of my life. Was a long wait for this (6 and a half years).”

The post was accompanied by a smiley outdoor selfie, with that ring in clear view.

His wife-to-be commented: “I LOVE YOU CAN’T WAIT TO MARRY YOU!”

And if you're counting down the days until the return of Clarkson's Farm, fear not, because you've not got long left to wait.

The second instalment of the popular Amazon Prime series is set to land on our TV screens on 10 February.
