Clarkson’s Farm series three FIRST LOOK: Jeremy, Kaleb and the Diddly Squat gang at are joined by new arrivals as the release date for the show is finally revealed

The hotly anticipated new third series of Clarkson’s Farm finally has a release date.

It has been revealed that the new season of the Prime Video original mini-series – which follows Jeremy Clarkson’s foray into the unpredictable world of British farming – will launch globally on the streaming platform on May 3.

First look images show the TV personality, 63, reuniting with his farm mate and Cotswolds native Kaleb Cooper, Gerald Cooper and Cheerful Charlie Ireland, as well as his girlfriend Lisa and the rest of the Diddly Squat gang.

As well as some familiar faces, the series will also introduce some new ones as Jeremy welcomes a bunch of pigs to his Chadlington farm as he takes on another new challenge and enters the world of pig farming.

Audiences can expect more authentic and unexpected trials and tribulations as Jeremy and his group of farmers tackle the latest task, having previously welcomed a herd of cows and a colony of bees to make his ‘bee juice’ honey.

The third series of Clarkson’s Farm finds Diddly Squat facing some seriously daunting challenges.

The crops are failing in the harsh hot weather, inflation has driven the prices of supplies sky high, dreams for the beloved restaurant have been crushed and now the farm store also faces closure.

Jeremy urgently needs to come up with creative new ways to make ends meet, so devises a plan to turn a profit from hundreds of acres of wasteland – thick woodland and hedgerows that make up half of Diddly Squat.

This prompts a flood of Clarkson-produced schemes, involving everything from goats and pigs to mushrooms, nettles and deer.

The new arrives in Diddly Squat, which puts Kaleb’s nose out of joint – as well as the returning characters who all work to help Jeremy’s farming ambitions come true.

Production has also started on a fourth series of the show.

It comes after fans of the Diddly Squat Farm store were left devastated after finding out the store will be closed until March.

The farm, which opened in 2020, announced on Facebook that it would be closing its doors for the next few months while adding that products would still be available online.

It came as Jeremy launched a planning battle after submitting new proposals for an ‘urgent’ storage shed at the farm in Chipping Norton.

Jeremy was forced to close his restaurant on Diddly Squat Farm last year after receiving an enforcement notice from the local council – with residents claiming the business was causing heavy traffic.

Devastated fans took to social media to share their disappointment at the store’s closure. One wrote: ‘Absolutely gutted you guys have booked a few days holiday this week from Lincoln to near Diddly Squat Farm Shop to finally be able to visit. I think I’ll have to take another holiday.’

Another added: ‘Seriously. The first time I went it was closed and now fly again at the end of February and it’s closed again.’

A third said: “I’m so confused.”

A fourth wrote: ‘Glad I popped over at the weekend to pick up some spuds. And, may I say, what delicious potatoes they are.’

Jeremy sparked another planning battle this week after submitting new proposals for an ‘urgent’ storage shed at his Diddly Squat farm.

The former Top Gear host has submitted new plans to build a large 118ft long by 59ft wide barn to store grain at the site near Chadlington, Oxfordshire.

Jeremy says the farm has an ‘urgent need for the additional storage’ and that the shed’s absence significantly affected the price he was able to get for selling his produce.

It will be the 11th application the Grand Tour host has made to West Oxfordshire County Council since buying a 1,000-acre farm in 2008.

Local residents were previously left fuming over his expansion plans with the council rejecting applications to open a restaurant, build a pickleball court and even lay out a simple farm court to a converted barn.

Only last week his latest bid was thrown out when he was told he could not plant a row of trees around a temporary car park on his 1,000 hectare farm which has become a popular tourist attraction.
