Clarkson’s Farm star Kaleb Cooper has a bone to pick with ITV daytime show This Morning.

The farmer, 25, complained on Instagram he had been suffering from a health ailment since an appearance on the show to promote season 3 of Jeremy Clarkson’s hit series.

Kaleb said an earache had afflicted him since being asked to wear an earpiece for his This Morning interview, joking that he ‘blamed’ ITV and was now in a ‘mood.’

On his Stories, he wrote: ‘I’ve got an earache which I’m blaming on ITV, because when I did the This Morning interview I had to wear an earpiece to be able to hear them and since then I’ve had an earache laughing face emoji.]

Rounding off his post, Kaleb quipped: ‘I might be in a mood at the moment!’

Hopefully, Kaleb will recover in time for Clarkson’s Farm season 3, the Amazon Prime series that first catapulted him to fame.

The show follows Jeremy, 64, guided by Kaleb, contending with the day-to-day running of his Diddly Squat Farm in Oxfordshire.

He bought the land in the Cotswolds in 2008 and after the villager who ran the farm retired in 2019 and the TV presenter decided to see if he could run it himself.

In the upcoming series, the team will face a number of challenges, including a rise in prices for farm supplies and dashed dreams for Jeremy’s restaurant.

Jeremy had found himself in hot water with his local authority after he allegedly opened a restaurant without planning permission, which West Oxfordshire District Council then shut down.

Prime Video says the programme will also show Jeremy trying to make ends meet by hatching a plan to turn a profit from using hundreds of acres of unfarmed land, including woodland and hedgerows.

His other schemes will involve goats, pigs, mushrooms, nettles and deer.

Since Kaleb has appeared on Clarkson’s Farm, he has become a star in his own right, including releasing a charity single and going on a one-man show tour about his life.

However, he previously told his heart is still with farming and has no plans to leave the profession: ‘As long as I can highlight farming and put it on the map I feel it’s the best feeling ever.

‘I want to be the best ambassador there is for farmers out there.’

Kaleb also said he didn’t know who Jeremy was before they began working together and thought he was a ‘flash git’ when they first met.

‘I resented Jeremy slightly the first time I met him but not because he had a farm- it was because he asked me to drive the tractor more slowly past his house so his cat could run around safely,’ he’s shared.

‘I ignored that because we were so busy. And to be honest, I didn’t know who he was. I didn’t have time to watch TV.

‘Sometimes the odd sports car would be delivered [for a motoring review] and I’d think, “Who’s this flash git then?”,’ he added when speaking to The Telegraph.

Clarkson’s Farm season 3 lands on Amazon Prime Video on May 3.
