The Grand Tour host Jeremy Clarkson, 61, has shared his concerns about working on his Diddly Squat Farm as the car-enthusiast opened up about his difficulties. The former Top Gear presenter cheekily jibed he has a proposal for Our Yorkshire Farm star Amanda Owen, 46, to assist with his sheep.
Doncaster-born Jeremy has swapped his life in the city to live on a farm, which he has documented on his new Amazon Prime series Clarkson’s Farm.
In a new interview, the Grand Tour presenter admitted he has been having trouble with his 76 sheep which admittedly costs him a “fortune”.
The presenter turned farmer revealed that his “errant flock” had broken through a neighbour’s electric fence.
Jeremy revealed, in addition, the flock had got tangled up in the wire mesh he replaced the electric fence with and also failed to respond to the drone he purchased in a bid to round up his sheep.
The small-screen star said he is now thinking of selling the animals to Amanda.
Speaking to the Times, Jeremy commented: “It’s nice having them around and the lambs are great and they make nice noises, but God almighty, they’re a pain in the a***.
“I might sell them all to that Yorkshire shepherdess woman.”
Amanda and her husband Clive share aspects of their life on a remote farm in North Yorkshire, alongside their nine children and thousands of animals.
Jeremy has previously spoken about the respect he has for Amanda as he admitted it was difficult to benefit financially from sheep.
“Sheep are complicated to keep and they make no money,” he commented.
It left Jeremy wondering how Amanda and Clive make any money with their own flock of sheep and the weather conditions they work in as he added: “When you shear a sheep, it costs you £1.45 to have it sheared and the wool is worth 30p. It’s not really a business proposition.”
His experience left Jeremy wondering how Amanda and her husband Clive make any money from their flock of sheep on Ravenseat Farm, due to the harsh Yorkshire Dales weather.

Jeremy added to The Sun: “The Yorkshire Shepherdess, I’ve got the greatest respect for the way they live as I know that part of the world and it’s brutal in the winter up there, it’s not easy.”
Meanwhile, the former Top Gear presenter has thanked fans after viewers praised his latest offering Clarkson’s Farm.
Jeremy has said he is “genuinely amazed” at the reaction to his new show.
The ex-Top Gear presenter tweeted thanking fans for their “kind words” over the new Amazon Prime documentary.
The programme follows the car-enthusiast as he attempts to run a farm in the countryside.
With no previous farming experience, he contends with the worst farming weather in decades, disobedient animals, unresponsive crops and an unexpected pandemic.
Viewers have flocked to social media and praised the show, as one wrote: “#ClarksonsFarm Jeremy Clarkson doing more for British Farming than Countryfile has done in 20+ years!”
Another commented: “Really enjoying #ClarksonsFarm.”
A third added: “After watching #ClarksonsFarm, thought we would visit Diddly Squat Farm shop today and so glad we did!”
