Jeremy Clarkson insists new farming show will go ahead despite coronavirus

Jeremy Clarkson has hit back at claims that his new farming show has been postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak.

The former Top Gear host responded to a report on Twitter suggesting that his show titled I Bought A Farm had been ‘put on hold’.

But after denying all claims he simply said: ‘No it hasn’t’.

Clarkson, began filming his eight-part Amazon Prime series in September 2019.

The 59-year-old opened his own farm shop in February this year, allowing the first lot of fans to try out the produce he had grown on Diddly Squat farm.

And in his new show, fans will follow him attempting to run his own 1,000-acre farm in Oxfordshire.

What could possibly go wrong?

The Grand Tour host has been growing his own crops on Diddly Squat farm for a year, and his fans were all invited to stop by and pick up a bag of potatoes (cheaper than Aldi, apparently), or try some drinks which have ‘no s**t in [them]’.

Georgia Brown, director of European originals at Amazon Studios, 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?’

Amazon has yet to announce when I Bought The Farm [working title] will be released in the UK.
