Jeremy Clarkson, 61, grinned as he admitted he finally got to “bust” his 22-year-old farm assistant Kaleb Cooper, for making his first mistake on Diddly Squat farm in a whopping two years. For fans of his Amazon Prime show, they will know how the young farmer doesn’t hold back when he spots an error made by Jeremy, so we can only imagine this came bitter sweet.
I haven’t seen him all morning. He’s in a sulk!
In a recent interview, The Grand Tour star giggled as he noted that Kaleb was now “in a sulk” having been picked up for the mistake.
“I was driving past one of the fields in a tractor,” Jeremy said, “then I noticed a strip that hasn’t been seeded.
“So I busted Kaleb for making his first mistake in two years.”
He added, chuckling: “I haven’t seen him all morning. He’s in a sulk!”
But fans know that the pair get on like a house on fire, with Kaleb confirming he and Jeremy are “good friends” during a previous appearance on Steph’s Packed Lunch.
“I like to say we’re good friends I do get angry quite a bit as you’ve probably seen,” he told the host earlier this year.
But it doesn’t stop them from going at each other when they have a disagreement.
In an episode of Clarkson’s Farm, Kaleb savagely took his boss down a peg or two after his first attempt at harvesting a field was not to his standards.
Poking fun at his tramlines, the 22-year-old held his head in his hands at the thought of watering the crop later on.
And then in the series finale, Jeremy realised he’d made another mistake, this being the biggest and most costly one yet.
As the barley was loaded into the one lorry he had hired, the presenter soon realised the grain from the 10 acres he’d harvested would completely fill it and he still had 140 acres left to go, and Kaleb was fuming when he discovered what had happened.
“20 lorries you should have organised,” he snapped.
“20 lorries! They should have been coming back and forth, back and forth!”
“29 tonnes in each one? But, it’s six o’clock on a Saturday night we’re not going to get anymore now and it’s Sunday tomorrow,” Jeremy looked perplexed.
With his hands on his hips a frustrated Kaleb added: “And it’s going to rain tonight.”
“Are we completely stuck then?” Jeremy asked.
The youngster replied: “Yes, completely stuck. We can’t cut any more barley now because you f**ked up.
“All you had to do was get your phone out and go ‘Hiya…'” he trailed off as he was interrupted by Jeremy who asserted: “No, wrong. No, I made the mistake about nine months ago when I went, ‘That barn’s big enough’.
“I was in full Yorkshire mode. ‘No I’m not spending more than 22 grand. That barn’s perfectly big enough, everything will go in there.’”
“I thought we’d have little bays, the rape would go there, the wheat would go there, the barley would go there. They never said to me… you never said to me if I’m honest,” Jeremy claimed.
“I did say your barn is small,” Kaleb said in defence of himself.
“Yes I know but you should have said, ‘You do realise that that barn will be totally filled by your rape’,” Jeremy responded.
“I did!” Kaleb exclaimed, with Jeremy arguing: “You didn’t say that.”
Kaleb once again hit out at the star, snapping: “I did! You just don’t listen!
