Jeremy Clarkson recently urged fans to write to Amazon if they wanted to see another series as he claimed it wasn’t down to him. Today, the car enthusiast turned farmer confirmed their wishes had been seemingly listened to and a new series was in the pipeline.

The Grand Tour star took to Twitter to confirm the news, filmed by his co-star Kaleb Cooper.

He said to the camera: “Following the success of the first series, I am delighted to say that there will be a second series of Clarkson’s Farm.”

“You mean Kaleb’s farm?” his co-star jokingly chimed in.

Jeremy shrugged off his colleague’s suggestion and confirmed the full team will be back including his partner Lisa Hogan.

The 61-year-old previously told fans there were no plans for another series.

He replied to a fan at the time: “No. We aren’t. Write to Amazon, it’s their decision.”

Fans swiftly flocked to Twitter to ask the steaming service to make it happen.

One wrote: “@PrimeVideo pleasepleaseplease it was the best thing I’ve seen all year.”

Another commented: “@primevideouk @AmazonUK what on earth are you doing?! Get series 2 signed off, now! @JeffBezos.”

Fans flocked to the presenter’s post to express their excitement about the show’s return.

One commented: “Good news, I want a Christmas special now where Kaleb & Clarkson visit other farms around the world. I think it would be very funny.”

A second added: “I just tweeted at Prime to give you a second session about 10 mins ago. I have to say I’m incredibly happy!! Roll on season 2.”

“Cannot wait, was the best show on TV, so funny,” a third commented.

Eager fans also quizzed the presenter on when the new series will be back on screens.

He replied: “Not soon. It’ll take a year to film it. That’s how farming works.”

The host bought his Diddly Squat Farm 12 years ago and has since opened his own farm shop.

Speaking to press including Express.co.uk, the host acknowledged local farmers’ concerns about his abilities at first.

He said: “I’m absolutely convinced they all want to roll their eyes and thought oh here he comes up from London.

“But, I’ve had my farm for a long time, 12 or 13 years and local chaps have been doing it.

“There’s bound to be [concerns] but what difference does it make whether I’m doing it or somebody else? I am trying my hardest.”

His co-star Kaleb added: “When he first started there was a lot of talk with the farmers, I’m very good friends with them all.

“They were like, ‘Oh God, here we go’ the one thing they have always said is Jeremy has always had an interest in farming, ever since [he] first bought the farm.

“He’s not the type of person who buys a bit of land, you take a contract on and you go and do it and you never see him.

“Jeremy is out there walking the farming going, ‘How are you doing this week? How is the wheat? How is the barley?’

The ex Top Gear star added he now gets on with his fellow Chipping Norton residents.
