Kaleb Cooper joined Steph McGovern on Steph’s Packed Lunch today to celebrate the success of Prime Video’s Clarkson’s Farm. Jeremy Clarkson enlisted Kaleb’s help when he decided to run his own 1,000-acre plot and the farm manager has now opened up on the “chaos” viewers miss out on behind-the-scenes.
Steph asked Kaleb to share any secrets from filming and tease what happens when the camera’s stop filming.
He said: “Everything you see on camera, is what happened behind the scenes as well I mean.
“It’s chaotic, it really is, it’s so busy because you know you can’t go out there and drill a field, and then go right, ‘Did you get that on camera? and he goes, ‘No, do it again.’
“You can’t do that so if you haven’t got it, you haven’t got it, end of.”

“It’s really difficult for the cameraman and the director to make sure they’ve got everything set up, which I see behind the scene,” he continued.
“I help carry a tripod for them and help out with them but yeah it’s really good.”
The farm manager revealed how he came to be a part of The Grand Tour host’s show.
Kaleb explained: “I worked on the farm with another chap in the village and we contract farmed Jeremy’s farm.”

“I worked there for three years and then he announced that he was retiring and I said well okay no worries I’ll set up my own business,” he continued.
“At the time I didn’t know but Jeremy was like, ‘Well I’m going to do it myself, and he said, ‘Look, would you like to do the farming side of stuff?’
“And I thought absolutely I know the fields like the back of my hands.
“I can tell him all the field names, how many hectares they are etc because I’ve been on there for three years farming it.”

“Then all of a sudden the TV crew come along asked, ‘Would you be interested?’ and when I started I was a little bit nervous,” Kaleb explained.
“I’m sure you know you read it in different papers and stuff that Jeremy says I’m a natural at TV which I don’t really know how I’ve done that.
“But I mean I soon pick it up and then the crews are amazing and the whole TV so just stuff I really enjoy.”
The farm manager confirmed he and Jeremy are “good friends” both on the farm and off it.

“I like to say we’re good friends I do get angry quite a bit as you’ve probably seen,” he said.
“When he messes it up I get very angry but apart from that, he’s a really nice chap.
“I mean we get on and we get on with work and without work which is really good.”
Steph’s Packed Lunch returns to Channel 4 on September 6 at 12.30pm.
