Jeremy Clarkson: ‘I have to keep going’ Top Gear star addresses struggles with solo move

The Grand Tour star Jeremy Clarkson, 59, said he didn’t realise how “time-consuming” and “hard” working on his new show would be. He said: “I didn’t realise that filming this farming malarkey would be as hard or as time-consuming as it is.

“I thought I could just turn up and drive a tractor for a bit and then get someone else to go and finish it.

“But there isn’t anyone else, so I have to keep going.”

The former Top Gear star lives on a 1,000-acre estate in Oxfordshire with his girlfriend Lisa Hogan.

He has since bought multiple sheep and admits he corrals his livestock with a drone that barks, instead of a sheepdog.

Addressing his motives, he added to GQ Magazine: “The drone has a speaker on it and for a week it worked brilliantly.

“But now the sheep have realised it’s not a threat, they just stand and stare at it. It’s got five different barks and none of them make the slightest bit of difference.

“So now I have to run around herding them.”

The presenter’s new show is an eight part series which shows him attempting to run his own working farm.

Jeremy began filming his new show in Autumn last year.

The former Top Gear star has since been giving fans an insight into his new life on the farm on Instagram.

Back in September, the former Top Gear star lamented about seagulls pecking at his crops in a video.

As he got closer to the crops, seagulls could be seen moving away.

He captioned the video: “S**t. My crops are escaping #newtofarming.”

Following this, he shared a rare picture of his girlfriend Lisa driving a tractor.

He commented: “Lisa’s new car”.

Most recently, Jeremy also shared a clip of three tractors stuck in the mud.

He simply captioned the video: “Stuck.”

Director of European originals at Amazon Studios Georgia Brown shared further details about Jeremy’s new show in a statement.

She said: “Jeremy is one of Britain’s finest exports and I think I speak for the entire nation when I say I can’t wait to see what will happen when he turns his usually petrol-covered hands to life on a working farm.

“We’re excited to bring this latest UK produced Amazon Original series to Prime Video viewers around the world next year.

“Wishing you lots of luck Jeremy… what could possibly go wrong?”
