Jeremy Clarkson's Diddly Squat Farm Shop reopened with a healthy interest from shoppers for 9.30am on a grey morning.

The car park was full by 9.45am although fans were nearly outnumbered by film crew shooting season 2 of Clarkson’s Farm which uses the Chadlington site as a location.

Mr Clarkson did not appear as he is away filming his motoring show The Grand Tour.

The team announced the shop would be back after a two month closure while changes were made to the roof following complaints from West Oxfordshire District Council that the wrong material was used.

Opening hours were also updated and will now be from Thursday to Sundays from 9.30am to 4.30pm throughout the month.

Inside the shop Mr Clarkson's partner Lisa Hogan was busy selling everything from jams and preserves to aprons and tea towels to coffee and clothes to eager customers.

Within an hour of the news the shop was reopening, 30 fans had reacted with joy and said they would definitely be visiting.

Meanwhile it was revealed this week that Jeremy and Ms Hogan have started two new businesses.

Named ‘Curdle Hill Juice’ and ‘Curdle Hill Wholesale’ - the original name of the Diddly Squat Farm, which Mr Clarkson renamed because he thought it was "financially barren" - it seems likely the businesses will be selling produce from the farm.

All will no doubt be revealed in Season 2 of Clarkson’s Farm which is due to come out later this year.

Although muddy, there was no sign yet of the car park becoming a 'sea of mud' with one visitor suggesting the shop should change it's name to Diddly Squelch on New Year's Eve.

The popularity of Clarkson's Farm on Amazon Prime has led to 'traffic chaos' according to neighbours with one being slammed as 'moaning' when she complained it made her late for a doctor's appointment.

However, others say the site has put the area on the map and a number of local businesses have placed advertising hoardings opposite the car park entrance.

A West Oxfordshire District Council (WODC) planning sub-committee refused the TV personality permission to convert a lambing shed into a restaurant on the site.

Mr Clarkson said it would enhance farming and tourism in the area and the refusal meant a "very bad day for farming".

When asked how frustrated he was, he said: "Very, and so will all the local farmers."

Planning officers said the proposal was out of keeping with the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and since his flock of sheep had been merged with another farm's the building had been used, without planning permission, as a cafe and a bar area.
