He also chatted about his love of farming, explaining: "I definitely sleep better after a day on the farm. There are no cameras here today, though. I’ve had to write a column and I’m seeing you. But as soon as you’re gone, weather permitting, I’m back on the tractor."

The star previously told HELLO!: "Literally everybody told me not to do it! Because farming is a vocation. You either need to be born into it or you need to go to agricultural college and learn how to do it.

Jeremy got himself in trouble by hitting a lamp post

"You can’t just say, 'I’m going to do farming.' I think John Humphrys tried to do farming – it lasted a year, and by his own admission he hated it, couldn’t do it and it was too difficult - it is phenomenally difficult!"
