Jeremy Clarkson announced last week that he will be filming a new series of Clarkson’s Farm, following fans’ demands to Amazon. The successful first series saw him getting to grips with his new life as a farmer with the help of his co-stars, including Kaleb Cooper and his partner Lisa Hogan.

One intrigued fan asked the presenter if he’d ever allow his The Grand Tour co-stars Richard Hammond and James May on the show, following their many years as colleagues.

Shutting down the thought, the 61-year-old Jeremy replied: “Not in a million years.”

Many of his 7.3 million followers flocked to his post to comment.

One wrote: “Oh, why the hell not?!”

A second added: “Jeremy, you’re the best. Don’t need those other two.”

A third joked that Richard may “crash” the tractor, following his previous incidents.

The trio have worked together for 20 years, firstly on Top Gear, followed by The Grand Tour.

The colleagues have respectively worked on their own projects away from the show over the years.

Most recently, Richard fronted another Amazon series The Great Escapists with Tory Bellici.

He previously said his new show was “refreshing”, telling Express.co.uk: “In 30 years of broadcasting, it’s been the most exciting journey I’ve ever been on because from day one I looked around and thought, ‘Everyone around me is good at their job, and that’s why they’re here’.”

On whether he discussed his new project with Jeremy and James, he added: “No, they do separate projects.

“We never… We do our own things.

“I wouldn’t ask for their feedback, it would be rude if they did,” he joked.

James stepped out of his comfort zone to front his cooking show James May: Oh Cook last year.

A second series is yet to be recommissioned.

Jeremy’s second series news came after the trio discussed episodes of The Grand Tour.

When asked if they are genuine friends by Express.co.uk, James joked: “We all hate each other really.”

He added of their friendship: “First and foremost, we are work colleagues, we work together.

“There is a rapport obviously, it wouldn’t work if you didn’t have that.

“But, we’re not friends as in you’re friends with your old school mates, your gang you’ve grown up with for many years.

“I suppose it’s a little bit like being a politician, being on two sides of the house,” he added of their friendship.

“There are people that you like arguing with and like having them there for the purposes of interaction and debate and stimulation, it’s that rather than, ‘Let’s go for a pint together and play Dominos’.

“I like seeing the other two because they wind me up.”
