On Clarkson's Farm, the former Top Gear host attempts to run the Diddly Squat farm, including taking on sheep farming and driving a Lamborghini tractor. This led to some disastrous moments!

Jeremy's partner Lisa Hogan also stars in the show, which has been renewed for a second series. In a Twitter post, Clarkson said: "I can reveal now that contrary to various silly reports, the farming show was never cancelled. Amazon were just as keen as us to get cracking. And now we are doing."

A fan on Twitter asked Jeremy if we would be seeing Richard or James on the show. They asked, "Can we get a cameo from Richard Hammond and Captain Slow?" to which Jeremy replied, "Not in a million years". Last week, Richard spoke to Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes on This Morning about his reaction to hearing the claim. He was asked about the claims he has been banned from Jeremy's farm.

Richard said, bewildered: “I read that!”

He went on to say that he is a fan of the show. "I mean, I love the show. The key thing about the show, and you can tell when you watch it, is that it is a genuine passion. It’s not for effect and it’s not just for telly. It’s genuinely something he wanted to get to grips with and that’s fantastic. That shines through. It wouldn’t be as convincing and as entertaining as it is if it weren’t true. That’s what’s at the heart of it."
