Jeremy Clarkson, 61, took to social media today to let his fans know that his latest Diddly Squat Farm project has hit a roadblock after being branded “offensive”. The TV presenter did not seem very happy to announce that the ad for his new Hawkstone Lager may not air.

In view of his 4.2 million followers, Jeremy uploaded a video captioned: “See the ‘offensive’ ad at @hawkstonelager.”

In the clip, the former Top Gear star could be seen enjoying a glass of his homemade beer as he faced the camera.

He then explained: “Bad news. I made a TV commercial to advertise my new Hawkstone Lager, which is made in the valley from Diddly Squat Farm.

“We were going to show it in the middle of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, but I’ve had an email from the lawyers saying that the scene where I take a swig and say ‘f**k me that’s good’, contravenes a number of regulations”.

He continued: “So it’s back to the drawing board.”

“It’s f****** good though,” the outspoken presenter concluded.

Jeremy recently opened up about his profits from Diddly Squat Farm and admitted he only made £144 in the first year.

However, he stressed he would like to continue running it despite the major pitfalls.

The presenter revealed in a column for The Times published last month that his 1,000 acre farm was worth £15-30 million.

He wrote: “People say I’m not emotional but the whole reason I’m doing this is emotional.

“The truth is I have enough money to eat for a thousand years.

“My thousand acres of Cotswolds land is worth £15-30 million so I’d make more money selling it and investing in emerging markets.”

He continued: “But I want to make the farm work.

“Not the farm shop or the brewery or the restaurant but the actual farm.

“I made £144 profit in my first year — that was pretty emotional for me.”

But Jeremy has been surrounded by controversy in the local area, as Chadlington villagers complained of a surge in visitors due to the success of his Clarkson’s Farm show on Amazon Prime.

He was also presented with a legal bid from one of his neighbours over a purported planning application to build a 70-space car park at a 60-seater café at the farm, according to the MailOnline.

The local man expressed concerns that the TV star would transform the region into a “Jeremy Clarkson theme park”.

Jeremy’s neighbour told the Daily Mirror: “I don’t understand why he’s stirring up controversy and antagonism right on his doorstep.

“These plans mean even more traffic, noise and light pollution in an area of outstanding natural beauty.”
