Jeremy Clarkson, 61, has made a huge splash in an industry most may have assumed was never for him. The motoring enthusiast’s new farming show has been a surprising hit with viewers since it debuted on Amazon Prime earlier this month, and they’ve been left eager to know whether there will be a second series.
That’s a decision for @primevideouk
But Clarkson it seems, is also clueless as to the future of his latest venture, despite the farming job being his lifestyle now.
After a fan took to Twitter to ask the all important question, he admitted it was out of his hands.
The viewer wrote: “@JeremyClarkson please tell me that there is more of Clarkson’s farm to come.
“It is delightful.”
He swiftly replied: “That’s a decision for @primevideouk.”
And by taking a look at some of the responses on social media, it appears the streaming site has been inundated with pleas from fans.
The show sees Clarkson try to get to grips with a 400-plus acre working farm, and it wasn’t as easy as he first thought.
After buying over 70 sheep at an auction, the former Top Gear star envisioned himself as a sheep farmer but he was far from the successful shepherd he believed he would be.
Growing desperate, the presenter decided to pop a proposal to Our Yorkshire Farm star Amanda Owen to assist with his sheep difficulties.
In a new interview, the The Grand Tour presenter admitted he has been having trouble with the flock which admittedly costs him a “fortune”.
The presenter turned farmer revealed that his “errant flock” had broken through a neighbour’s electric fence.
In addition, they’d got tangled up in the wire mesh he replaced with the electric fence and failed to respond to the drone he used to try and round them up.
The small-screen star said he is now thinking of selling the animals to Amanda.
Speaking to The Times, Jeremy commented: “It’s nice having them around and the lambs are great and they make nice noises, but God almighty, they’re a pain in the a***.
“I might sell them all to that Yorkshire shepherdess woman.”
Amanda and her husband Clive share aspects of their life on a remote farm in North Yorkshire, alongside their nine children and thousands of animals.
Jezza has previously spoken about the respect he has for the Yorkshire sheperdess as he admitted it was difficult to benefit financially from sheep.
“Sheep are complicated to keep and they make no money,” he commented.
It left him wondering how Amanda and Clive make any money with their own flock of sheep and the weather conditions they work in as he added: “When you shear a sheep, it costs you £1.45 to have it sheared and the wool is worth 30p. It’s not really a business proposition,” he pointed out.
