Jeremy Clarkson fans have been left ‘disappointed’ after hearing the star’s plans to ‘close’ the Diddly Squat Farm shop for two whole months. 

The store, which is featured in the TV presenter’s popular Clarkson’s Farm show on Amazon Prime, will apparently be shut throughout January and February next year.

A statement confirming the closure has been released on Instagram, revealing that the decision was ‘made by the council’.

Find out why Jeremy Clarkson ‘drank himself silly’ in the clip below…

It reads: “Diddly Squat Farm Shop open 9.30-4pm until 31st December. Closed January and February.

“Council insisted we change the roof. Closed for building work.”

After reading the news, many people took to the comments section and said they couldn’t wait for it to reopen.

One follower said: “So bummed, we had planned to visit in January.”

Another added: “That definitely puts vacation plans on hold for a bit I will just have to wait until there’s an update so I can make plans.”

“Will just have to go in the summer,” a third penned, alongside a sad face emoji.

Others also said they couldn’t wait for the shop to reopen so that they could get their hands on Clarkson’s brand new beer brand.

Tagging a friend, one fan commented: “When we go next I’m getting some beer!”

All the way from America, a second asked: “Are we able to purchase the beer from the US?”

The former Top Gear presenter recently launched Hawkstone Lager, which he claims is made at his very own farm.

Discussing his release on the brand’s official page, he said: “This is the Hawkstone, it was erected 4,000 years ago by ‘our neolithic ancestors’.

“It’s watched Roman armies march past, and the Normans, and the plague, and the Luftwaffe, druids, new romantics and punks.

“And now it’s watching me standing in front of it, drinking some lager – lager that I’ve made in its honour.”
