Kaleb opened up about the show

Speaking about his relationship with Jeremy, he added: “He doesn’t listen to me, he never listens to me. I tell him to do one thing and he does the complete opposite. I get very annoyed when he messes up. That is very much genuine.” He added: “We just laugh all the time, our banter and sense of humour are very much the same. He's a great chap.”

Chatting about his farming endeavour to HELLO! back in June, Jeremy said: “Farming is just an immensely complex business, there are idyllic evenings when you find yourself leaning on a fence looking at your sheep, or stopping for a ploughman’s when you’ve been on a tractor all morning – but sitting and filling in your EU paperwork, or running an accident book isn’t great – especially not with Kaleb on the farm! Like with many jobs, you have to be so many things in order to do it.”
