Jeremy Clarkson has revealed he is the ‘happiest he has been at work in a long time’ after filming his new Amazon farming show Clarkson’s Farm.

The Grand Tour star’s latest show sees him leave behind his life in London to take over the day to day running of his 1,000 acre farm, learning the ins and outs of the lifestyle. 

Speaking at the Amazon Prime Video launch event for Clarkson’s Farm, Jeremy said that he ‘loved every second of it’. 

He said it was ‘the happiest I have been at work for a very long time’, adding: ‘I was stuck on a 1,000-acre farm in the Cotswolds and it was heaven.’

‘It was absolutely heavenly, I loved every single second of it,’ he added.

Speaking about his experiences since taking over the running of the farm in 2019, he added: ‘I woke up every morning at six o’clock and just thought, “I can’t wait to get back out there on my tractor and do a crop walk or spot all the little diseases that wheat has or barley has”.’

AMAZON PRIME VIDEO UNVEILS THE BRAND NEW UK ORIGINAL SERIES FROM CLARKSON?S FARM Jeremy Clarkson is a journalist, a broadcaster, and a man who travels the world to slide sideways in supercars while shouting. He is not a farmer, which is unfortunate because he?s bought a 1,000-acre farm in the English countryside and decided to run it himself, despite knowing nothing whatsoever about farming. The series follows an intense, backbreaking and frequently hilarious year in the life of Britain?s most unlikely farmer and his team, as they contend with the worst farming weather in decades, disobedient animals, unresponsive crops, and an unexpected pandemic.

He went on to say: ‘It was just so different to what I normally do, and we were made key workers, which if I’d been driving round corners while shouting, which is what I have done for the last 30 years, I wouldn’t have been made a key worker, but I was because I was providing food.’

Jeremy might have described it as his happiest time of his career in a long time, there were difficult moments along the way. 

The presenter previously spoke about the harsh realities of rearing sheep after struggling to hold back tears in an emotional moment from his new Amazon Prime Video series.

In one scene from the upcoming series, Jeremy is faced with the difficult decision to put down three of his new flock after they develop illnesses which prevent them from giving birth to lambs. 

After taking them to the abattoir himself, the presenter is left with tears in his eyes after returning to their pen to say goodbye on last time – only to find that they’ve already been taken off to be killed.

Talking about the moving moment, Jeremy told Metro.co.uk and other press that he had grown attached to the sheep, but that killing them was ‘part of the job’.

‘Nobody likes killing an animal,’ he said. ‘They just don’t. You can’t say: “I enjoy killing animals.” You’d be deranged, you’d be a sociopath. So you don’t enjoy it.’

Clarkson’s Farm launches on Friday on Amazon Prime Video.
