Jeremy Clarkson admits he had sleepless nights after ‘painful’ losses at his Diddly Squat farm
Jeremy Clarkson has admitted he’s had sleepless nights after several “traumatic” deaths at his Diddly Squat farm.
The presenter-turned-farmer, 62, revealed his anguish over sending seven of his beloved pigs to the slaughterhouse, who were staying at his farm in Chipping Norton.
During an earlier episode of his Amazon Prime series, Clarkson’s Farm, his tough personality breaks down when he takes three sheep to the slaughterhouse.
It was devastatingly expensive, he said, sobbing into his car. But these hostile machines, crazy about sex and disease, have brought much joy to the farm.
Jeremy added, ‘I had grown to love having them around, but was later seen eating them in shepherd’s pie.
Oh no! Jeremy Clarkson admitted he had sleepless nights after several painful deaths at his Diddly Squat farm
Upset: The presenter-turned-farmer, 62, revealed he was worried about sending seven of his beloved pigs to the slaughterhouse, who were staying at his farm in Chipping Norton.
But as the terrible time draws near again, V.I Sunday times: “I can never sleep properly the night before they’re gone, and all the way to the slaughterhouse I have what looks like a hot cricket ball in the pit of my stomach.
And then when it finally comes time to say goodbye, he always gets a little unmanly. I know I’m trying to be a farmer and that’s what farmers do. And I know I’m going to enjoy bacon, ham, and ham chops as a result.
But it is not easy, taking seven happy and healthy pigs from their home in the forest has led to their death. Especially since hog prices are so low right now, that I would almost certainly end up losing the deal.
Jeremy must have written his last column abroad as he recently appeared with a meerkat on top while on a trip to Botswana with partner Lisa Hogan, 50.
Jeremy — who was wearing a brown leather jacket in the amusing shot — joked in the caption, “Today, I was mostly a human observer.”
His journey to the South African country got off to a somewhat rocky start as he encountered “a bit of turmoil” on his way there.
He shot a selfie-style video while on a private jet, yelling, “Get on the ludds!” A reference to the famous scene in The Wolf Of Wall Street.
This caused his girlfriend, an artist and former model, to burst into laughter.
