Jeremy Clarkson ran into an unexpected problem while working on his Oxfordshire farm.

The former Top Gear presenter purchased Chadlington’s Diddly Squat Farm in 2008 before taking the reins shortly before season one of Clarkson’s Farm was released.

A global hit, the Prime Video show documents day-to-day life on the farm with Clarkson’s struggles and successes in the agricultural venture.

Now into its third season which was released last month, the show is more popular than ever with thousands of tourists descending on the farm in recent weeks.

Most arrive with the hope of spotting Clarkson at the location with one fan asking on social media whether the star would drive by the Farm Shop on Monday.

“Jeremy Clarkson we [are] at the DS farm shop, only fair you do a drive by no,” said the fan on X.

The 64-year-old Who Wants to Be a Millionaire presenter responded to the fan and confirmed that he had been close but ran into issues when the tractor broke.

“Was drilling in the field opposite this morning,” said Clarkson.

“Then the tractor broke.”

This was the latest of many requests from Clarkson’s Farm fans asking when the celebrity would be at the Diddly Squat Farm Shop.

One X user asked if he would be at the farm last week to which the Clarkson responded: “I’m here every day. It’s where I live.”
