Jeremy Clarkson is set to release a new book about his farming journey.

The Grand Tour presenter has turned to agriculture in recent years after taking over the running of Diddly Squat Farm.

Diddly Squat: A Year on the Farm, which is being published by Penguin Michael Joseph, will feature columns from the presenter alongside illustrations.

The publisher said: “In this gorgeously illustrated new collection of columns, Jeremy tells the story of how he traded in fast cars and city living for a new life in the country.”

Announcing the news on his social media channels, Clarkson simply shared an image of the cover, writing: "I’ve done a thing."

It follows the success of Clarkson's farming series on Amazon Prime which has recently been renewed for a second season.

The programme goes behind-the-scenes to look at the running of the farm as Clarkson is helped out by a team of experts including tractor driver Kaleb Cooper, stone wall star Gerald Cooper, and land agent 'Cheerful' Charlie Ireland, as well as his partner Lisa Hogan who runs the farm shop.

Clarkson said in a statement last week: "I’m absolutely delighted that, once again you’ll be able to spend some time with Cheerful Charlie, Gerald, Lisa and of course, Kaleb. We are such a happy team.”

“Clarkson’s Farm is Jeremy’s unfiltered love letter to farming,” said Dan Grabiner, Head of UK Originals, Amazon Studios. “It is that authenticity, charm and humour, combined with the farm’s fantastic characters, which have made the series such a remarkable hit with audiences.
