How did Kaleb Cooper meet Jeremy Clarkson?

Kaleb was already working on the farm when Jeremy Clarkson took it over.

He told David Prever on his BBC Radio Oxford Breakfast Club show: “Jeremy bought the farm in 2008 and I worked for the chap who contract-farmed it.

“Jeremy came up and said: ‘I still need someone to farm the farm – would you be interested? You know every name of the field, every acreage of the field. You’re the perfect person to keep farming it.’

“I said: ‘Absolutely, I’d love to farm your farm.’ But instead of having the top man there, I was the top man.”

Could we see Kaleb Cooper on other TV shows in the future?

Kaleb answered this on ITV’s This Morning, saying: “That’s a very big question and I’m not really too sure how to answer that. In terms of TV, I’ve loved it. I picked it up so quickly and the crew we had here – I got on with them so well.

“Personally, I would love to [do more telly], but as long as it’s included in the farming side of stuff. I wouldn’t want to do anything that isn’t farming.”

One thing he definitely ruled out was a certain reality show… “No, not Love Island,” he said.

“Maybe I’m A Celebrity. I’d be good on that. But I’m not sure, to be honest. We’ll see what the future holds.”

However it is looking like very positive news for a Clarkson’s Farm season 2 so we should be able to get our Kaleb fix in the future.
