Fans of Clarkson's Farm have been left delighted after Jeremy Clarkson took to social media to confirm that there will be a fourth series of the hit Amazon Prime show. Filming is set to be completed this year.

After the first half of series three was released on May 3 - with the final four episodes releasing a week later, on May 10 - it broke Amazon Prime Video's UK ratings record, with 5.1 million fans streaming the debut episode of the latest series. That's more than a million more than watched the series two debut last year.

And now, Jeremy has taken to social media to express his gratitude to viewers, posting on X (formerly Twitter): "Once again, thank you for all the kind words about the second half of series 3. I hope you enjoy 4 as much."

Series three of the show was an emotional rollercoaster, from Jeremy trying his hand at pig farming for the first time - and all the trials and tribulations that come with it - as well as his continued camaraderie and friendly competition with his farm manager, Kaleb Cooper, and 'head of security', Gerald Cooper, being diagnosed with prostate cancer.

And, thankfully, it seems as though fans won't have to wait too long to see their favourite farming team return to their screens - as Jeremy went on to answer a fan's question about when to expect series four, responding: "We will film it all this year".

He further engaged with fans of the show, as one person wrote: "One of the best programmes you've created. Not that it takes much creating. Your job of simply running the farm and highlighting the issues of British farming makes for excellent television. A superb job you're all doing."

And Jeremy responded: "You're dead right. It isn't created or written or planned. The cameras just film us doing stuff."

Meanwhile, another commented: "Thank you so much for making this show. In America here, even on reality shows it feels like people are fake, but your show everyone is so genuine and when I watch you all feel like family, I feel your joys and pains, because of that genuineness. I hope you can make this last."

And the former Top Gear host answered: "The truth of the matter is that every person on the show was at Diddly Squat before the show began. There was no 'casting'."

In the latest instalment of Clarkson's Farm on Amazon Prime, viewers were moved by a heartfelt moment as Gerald confided in Jeremy about his cancer struggle, the Mirror reports.

The final episode sees Jeremy Clarkson come together with Lisa Hogan, Charlie, Kaleb, and Gerald, reflecting on a year of challenges and triumphs at Diddly Squat Farm.

Jeremy mused: "We have had our usual year of rows, bad weather, disappointments, deaths, but let us look at it this way, I became a grandfather for the first time, you became a father again [pointing to Kaleb] and you, the G-Dog, beat the big C."

Visibly touched, Gerald simply said: "Yeah," followed by a toast with the group to "Cheers". Emotionally charged, Gerald continued: "I would like to thank everybody, all the film crew, and all my friends here," before being overcome with emotion.

Jeremy, taken aback, let out an unexpected "Oh," before commending Gerald's bravery with a supportive: "Well done you!"

He is understood to have had surgery at some point last year.
