'Clarkson's Farm' series 2 first look: Kaleb Cooper cringes as Jeremy Clarkson and Lisa Hogan kiss
Jeremy Clarkson is returning for a new series of Clarkson's Farm - and first-look images show Kaleb Cooper is as despairing of his boss as ever.
The documentary series following petrolhead Clarkson trying to get to grips with Diddly Squat farm was a huge hit for Amazon Prime Video and filming for season two began last year.
Viewers loved the uneasy friendship between Clarkson and Kaleb Cooper, a 23-year-old farm manager employed to whip the land - and his boss - into shape.
Cooper was frequently frustrated with TV star Clarkson's cluelessness about rural life, and in the first pictures of series two it looks like nothing has changed.

He looks away awkwardly as Clarkson kisses his partner Lisa Hogan in one of the photos, but fans of the show will be pleased to see he is back for the new series.
Other images show the former Top Gear host throwing himself back into farming life in Chipping Norton with some of the vehicles that he learned about in series one.
In another photo, Clarkson is seen driving a tractor with Cooper balancing on the front of it, hinting at further farming capers between the pair.

While Clarkson learned a lot from his farm manager in the first series, it doesn't sound as though things have gone particularly smoothly between filming.
Discussing farming accidents on The Jonathan Ross Show late last year, Clarkson said: “I got this thing called a telehandler, it’s like a JCB thing. I thought, ‘I’ll just use its front to push the post in.’ I actually got Kaleb to go in and it got halfway into the ground and the fence was leaning on it and it flicked back.
“How it didn’t take my leg off... I didn’t walk properly for a week. This was a quarter of a tonne of fence post.”
He also had to deal with the anger of locals who were sick of the high volume of tourist traffic to his farm shop, even calling a meeting to discuss the problem where he complained that visitors had been urinating on his drive.
