Jeremy Clarkson has responded to claims that Diddly Squat Farm has closed for Easter Monday.

The former Top Gear star took to social media to let people know that the Diddly Squat Farm shop is in fact open today (Monday, April 1).

It comes as reports that the farm shop in Chadlington has failed to attract a big crowd following miserable bank holiday weekend weather.

Posting to X, formerly known as Twitter, Mr Clarkson said: "Contrary to what it says on the endlessly incorrect internet, Diddly Squat Farm Shop is open today."

The farm shop reopened on March 1 following its annual winter closure with queues were much shorter at the shop from the previous year with the new 70-space car park opposite the shop.

Mr Clarkson was finally granted planning permission for the facility following a year-long battle with West Oxfordshire District Council.

The council had refused permission for the car park as they said it would harm an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.'

Mr Clarkson appealed and won, however, the rejection of his plans for a restaurant at the site was upheld.

The car park opened last August and soon became jam-packed with two-hour waits, forcing staff to open another field where a further 100 cars could park on the grass.

Last year's reopening of Diddly Squat Farm Shop near Chipping Norton saw hundreds of fans flock to the site in the hopes of catching a glimpse of the 63-year-old Grand Tour presenter.

Before last February's shop reopening Oxfordshire County Council issued a statement, urging customers to park "safely and considerately".

The host of ITV’s Who Wants to be a Millionaire purchased the farm in 2008 and his progress there has been documented by Prime Video’s Clarkson’s Farm.

After two popular series, the show based around the farm is set to release a third season on the Amazon streaming platform on Friday, May 3.
