Jeremy Clarkson teases new Diddly Squat book

Petrol head turned farmer Jeremy Clarkson has announced the release of his third farming book, Diddly Squat: Pigs Might Fly.

Having turned his hand to farming three years ago, marmite figure Clarkson has been praised for showing the realities of farming life – whilst finding humour in the challenges and mishaps he faces day to day.

Now, he’s set to release his third book on his farming journey, Pigs Might Fly.

Clarkson read out a snippet of the book, which is due to be released later this month, on Instagram, but he gave little away.

“This is my brand new book. And I thought it might be fun to read you a short excerpt from it, give you a flavour:

‘Part of the problem is that to make the price seem worthwhile, you have to tell people why your new acquisition was so expensive. It was Richard Madeley’s cricket bat, you know.’

“Exciting stuff. And there’s more where that came from in Diddly Squat: Pigs Might Fly.”

According to the book summary, readers can expect to be regaled with more outlandish schemes from Diddly Squat Farm – the sheep are gone, to be replaced with pigs and ‘psychopathic’ goats ­– while the cows have been joined by a bull named Break-Heart Maestro.

Since the last book, Clarkson’s enthusiastic schemes for diversification have been met with stubborn opposition from the ‘red trouser bridgade’, and Kaleb and Lisa have had doubts about Jeremy’s plan to build a business empire based on rewilding and nettle soup.

Nonetheless, Clarkson remains ‘irrepressibly optimistic’ about life at Diddly Squat.

The book follows his previous offerings, A Year on the Farm and ‘Til the Cows Come Home’.

Pigs Might Fly is due for release in hardback on 26th October 2023 (published by Michael Joseph).
