Kaleb Cooper works 117-hour weeks and says Clarkson 'does his f**king head in'
| Last updated
Clarkson's Farm fans are rejoicing following the release of the second season of the hit show.
LADbible headed down to Diddly Squat Farm, where Kaleb told us just how hard he works - and how hard it is working with Clarkson.
Much of the joy of the first season was watching Kaleb frustratedly teach Clarkson the fundamentals of farming, with the broadcaster trading in expensive cars for costly livestock as he attempted to farm the 1,000 acres of land he owns in the Cotswolds.
It's clear 24-year-old Kaleb has taught Clarkson so much, but has Kaleb learnt much from Clarkson?
"Television I have," he said. "I mean, the man's amazing at making television.
"I look up to that - wouldn't want to admit it to him, don't tell him I said that."
He added: "We get on well... but he does do my f***ing head in."
Meanwhile, Clarkson admitted he lives in fear of Kaleb.
Asked why he thinks the show has proven to be so popular, the 62-year-old told LADbible: "Kaleb. I think he's an absolute star.
"And what I love about Kaleb is he just has no airs and graces around me at all, it's just, 'You f***ing useless w***er.'
"That happens on a daily basis, and I live in constant fear of upsetting him - which I know I've done. I did something yesterday so bad, and I know he's going to find out, and I couldn't sleep last night thinking, 'He is going to be livid with me.'"
And while much of the show is comprised of the duo bickering and poking fun at each other, it is clear the unlikely pair share a friendship and plenty of respect for one another.
"He's a wonderful, wonderful person," Clarkson continued. "The hardest working person I know.
"He doesn't have a day off either. He does 18 hours a day, every day."
Indeed, Kaleb said he regularly clocks 117-hour weeks.
"That's an average week," he said.
"My one goal in life is to buy myself a farm - that's what I want more than anything."
He added: "I'm a firm believer, if you wake up in the morning and go, 'Urghhh, got to work,' you're in the wrong job straightaway.
"I wake up and I go, 'Right, dreams don't work unless you do.' You know, that's one thing that's in my head all the time."
