Clarkson’s Farm returns this May and the first photos from the new season show Jeremy Clarkson’s softer side.
The former Top Gear presenter is seen cuddling a teeny-tiny pig in promotional photos for the new season, as his farmhand Kaleb Cooper stands beside him.
Returning on 3 May, Clarkson’s Farm will also see the return of all the other lovable characters, including Cotswold local Gerald, and the farm accountant Cheerful Charlie.
Press material suggests a shock for Kaleb though – a new arrival to the farm “puts Kaleb’s nose out of joint”. It’s unclear who the new arrival is.
Still trying to make a profit from the farmland but struggling to make ends meet, Clarkson’s Farm season 3 follows Jeremy Clarkson as he attempts to turn hundreds of acres of unfarmed land – woodland and hedgerows that make up half of Diddly Squat – profitable.
Clarkson’s Farm has been a huge success since it first aired in 2021, with some commentators saying it has given the plight of farming some much-needed publicity. One farmer said the show had done in one season what “30 years of Countryfile” had achieved.
Clarkson’s Farm season 3 returns on 3 May.
