With Clarkson's Farm set to come back very soon, Jeremy’s farming pal Kaleb Cooper has spoken about one of the TV presenter’s most bizarre moments thus far.

Series three of the hugely popular series returns in two parts, with the first four episodes landing on Prime Video on Friday, 3rd May and the remaining four following on Friday, 10th May.

The new series will continue to document life on the Grand Tour host's Diddly Squat farm in the Cotswolds. Amongst the latest dramas - which include the sad death of animals, injuries to the team and planning permission issues - viewers will see Jeremy take to some blackberry hedges with a vacuum cleaner. 


Speaking during a Q+A with virginradio.co.uk and other press, fan-favourite Kaleb said: “That is something I'm never going to forget.”

He added: “I was like, ‘Do you know what? I haven't got the energy to actually stop and ask him what he's doing.’”

It turns out that, having spotted the potential for making jam from all of the blackberries on the property, Jeremy decided to use a vacuum cleaner to remove them from the branches.

“You wait until you get a Henry Hoover on your blackberry hedges, it’ll change your life,” Jeremy said.

He continued: “I could not believe it worked, but there we are. Has anyone been blackberrying? The hours and hours, you’ve got a colander or something with you and you put them in. And the hours and hours and you’ve lacerated your hands, and you look down and you've got, like, six! That's just not enough. So, the Henry Hoover is just amazing, because you get all of them.”

Kaleb said: “I mean, I love the idea of farming the unfarmed. I think, in terms of farms, the average size of a farm in the UK is 125 acres. Now, is all that always farmed? Probably not, by the time you take the woodland out and the hedgerows, so actually I think it's a really good idea!”
