Jeremy Clarkson will make more than Diddly Squat out of this! Fans form massive queues as TV star’s farm shop reopens for first weekend after its winter closure

Massive queues have been forming outside Jeremy Clarkson‘s Diddly Squat farm shop today after it reopened yesterday for the first weekend since its winter closure. 

Photographs show long lines of people waiting to enter the TV star’s shop on Diddly Squat Farm in Chadlington, West Oxfordshire, while their cars fill up the side of a country road. 

Local council officials warned Clarkson fans not to cause any traffic chaos by parking near his farm ahead of the expected influx of fans to the site.  

It comes after the 62-year-old’s store appeared quieter than usual yesterday, with only a small queue of 14 visitors – mostly from London – braving the cold to visit. 

Clarkson closed the farm shop after he caused outrage over his comments on Meghan Markle – but opened its doors again to mark the launch of the second series of his Amazon show.

Visitor numbers were visibly down after figures revealed the store has raised its prices over the last two years – and is now hundreds of per cent higher than high street supermarkets such as Aldi.

A box of eggs costs £3.20, while milk from Clarkson’s ‘cow juice’ milk dispenser now costs £1.20 – all up on 2021 prices. 

The first customers to pay at the counter yesterday morning spent £134 on just a few items. 

Visitors, warmed by £2.50 little filter coffees, said they were ‘surprised’ at how few people arrived – though by 10:30am the car park had become fuller. 

Meanwhile, Clarkson is said to have stormed off after abandoning his restaurant opening at the farm. 

The TV presenter chose to open a restaurant on his land, as seen on his series Clarkson’s Farm on Amazon Prime Video.

After the local council overturned his plans to transform his old lambing barn into a restaurant, Clarkson settled for renovating an abandoned barn instead.

However, preparations for the opening day were thrown into disarray when Jeremy and the team were faced with electrical faults in the venue.

There was soon a long line of visitors arriving in their cars but the restaurant was not ready to seat them.

The stress of the situation apparently caused Jeremy to launch into a foul-mouthed rant before he drove off.

When asking if he could get rid of a mop and bucket, someone said: ‘I think we need to mop the floor first.’

Jeremy replied: ‘We can’t, the guests are here. F*** it, it’s a farm.’

He was then said to have been heard saying to someone else: ‘Here’s a tip if you have got a job to do, get out of the car and f****** run because we need to move this car.’

He then quipped in his voiceover: ‘At this point, I realised that my inner Gordon Ramsey was doing more harm than good, so I made a decision.’

Jeremy was then seen telling land agent Charlie Ireland: ‘I’m going to move myself now.’
