In a new interview with The Times, Cooper admitted he wasn't initially keen on the former Top Gear presenter.

He said: "When I first met Jeremy, I thought, 'Who’s this muppet?'

Cooper also described working with Clarkson as like: "Being his farm manager is like being a babysitter. If you think that teaching young kids is hard, you try teaching a 62-year-old who never listens."

He added: "In farming you need a good relationship with the people you’re working with or the whole thing falls apart. I just wish he’d get it into his head that I’m the boss."

The second season of Clarkson's Farm recently broke viewing records for Prime Video in the UK.

According to a report by Deadline, around 4.3 million people watched the season two premiere which is more than a million more than the previous record held by The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

The success of the show comes in spite of the controversy courted by Clarkson in the aftermath of his column where he said he "hated" Meghan Markle and fantasised about her being stripped naked and pelted with excrement.

As a result of the now deleted Sun column, Clarkson himself later admitted that Amazon were "incandescent" with him.

It was later reported that Amazon had cut all ties with Clarkson apart from commissions they had already agreed to.

It is expected a third and final season of Clarkson's Farm will air sometime in 2024.
