Jeremy Clarkson has confirmed there will be a third season of his farming show, after claims Amazon would axe it amid backlash over his controversial Meghan Markle column.
The 62-year-old received glowing reviews on social media after the new season came out on Friday morning, as well as massive queues outside his newly reopened Diddly Squat farm shop in Chadlington, West Oxfordshire.
Binge-watching fans had taken to social media to demand another season of Clarkson’s Farm after viewing the second series of the popular Amazon show in one weekend.
Clarkson confirmed to a fan asking whether a third season was in the works that ‘there is one’.
It comes in spite of outrage caused by Clarkson over his comments on Meghan Markle – after which he temporarily closed the doors to his shop.

There was widespread outrage after Clarkson’s comments about Meghan Markle that prompted him to temporarily close the doors to his shop
The store has raised its prices over the last two years, with some products hundreds of per cent higher than high street supermarkets like Aldi
Last week, the Independent Press Standards Organisation (Ipso) said it was launching an investigation into a column written by Clarkson for The Sun newspaper about the Duchess of Sussex after it received more than 25,100 complaints.
The article, in which he said he hated Meghan and dreamed of her being paraded through British towns and publicly shamed, became Ipso’s most complained-about article after its publication.
Clarkson and The Sun both apologised for the piece, and it was later removed from the newspaper’s website. He also said his language was ‘disgraceful’ and he was ‘profoundly sorry’.

Massive queues have been forming outside the presenter’s Diddly Squat farm shop after its winter closure.
On Sunday cars could be seen parked on the grass verges into the farm after the public were warned by Oxfordshire County Council earlier this week to park ‘safely and considerately’ near the area.

The council said on Facebook: ‘Don’t park on the A361. It’s just too dangerous. And please avoid parking on the verges of the narrow Chipping Norton Road as it causes damage.
‘The farm will be doing what it can to deal with the influx of visitors, so please follow signage on the day. But bear in mind the car park is small.
‘If you are directed by staff, whether you are through traffic or visiting the farm shop, please be patient with them – they are trying to keep you safe and allow traffic to flow.’
The second series of Clarkson’s Amazon series shows another year in the farm with new animals and crops as well as Clarkson’s dealings with the local council.
Clarkson, who purchased the farm in 2008 and started running it himself in 2019, received a poor reaction from some villagers when he expanded the business to include a farm shop and restaurant.
He previously said there were ‘plenty’ of other locals who appeared to be more receptive, and even encouraging of his work.
An order for the closing of the restaurant was appealed by Clarkson last year following two planning applications being rejected by West Oxfordshire District Council.
He subsequently said he ‘no longer wished’ for a restaurant and wanted to develop on-site parking in a letter to the council in January.
Meanwhile, Clarkson also co-hosts Amazon Prime TV series The Grand Tour with his former Top Gear co-presenters’ Richard Hammond and James May.
