Jeremy Clarkson, who was recently ‘threatened with legal action‘ by a YouTuber, has revealed he’s encountered ‘major problems’ while filming the second series of Clarkson’s Farm

The former Top Gear host bought Diddly Squat Farm two years ago and began filming the day-to-day runnings of it for Amazon Prime.

However, in his latest column for The Sun, he’s said that lots of the team have ‘laid low with Covid’ recently.

The 61-year-old wrote: “Since I started farming, I’ve always had a team of people to mend the stuff I get wrong.

“But this week, every single one of them was laid low with Covid. And I’m not even sure you’ll be able to see me coping on my own because one of the cameramen has it, too. And the director.”

Clarkson continued: “Luckily, I have led a healthy life so I’m still okay.

“Although it did take me eight hours to muck out and feed the cows on Wednesday. A job Kaleb normally does in about four minutes.”

It comes after he was slammed over a comment he made about Ant McPartlin’s drink-driving conviction on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

The journalist was accused of making the atmosphere ‘awkward’ in the studio by saying: “Look it’s the driver and his friend,” as he appeared to discuss a prank the pair had played on him. 

After watching the ITV programme, many took to Twitter and said that the comment was ‘below the belt’.

One penned: “@jeremyclarkson was that driver and his mate joke for Ant and Dec about his drink driving? Bit below the belt if so.”

Another added “He’s a k*** and always will be. Ant, you’re amazing and I have supported you 100%.”

However, others said it was a misunderstanding and insisted Clarkson was referring to the driver of the digger, which was part of the prank.

They tweeted: “He meant the driver of the digger from the prank they had just played on him, did you actually watch the show?”
