Jeremy Clarkson selling farm items from roadside filing cabinet amid coronavirus pandemic

Top Gear and The Grand Tour star Jeremy Clarkson 59, invited shoppers to “panic buy” from his farm shop in Chadlington, near Chipping Norton last week. Now, the presenter is selling items at reduced prices from a filing cabinet on the roadside.

In these testing times, a little comic relief will no doubt do us some good.

The television star is selling potatoes for as little as 10p, as well as vegetables priced at 15p a piece.

Photographer Marc West spotted a sign which advertises Jeremy’s available stock.

He said of his discovery: “Jezza is well-known for his ever-humorous approach to life.

“In these testing times, a little comic relief will no doubt do us some good.

“Sadly I was unable to take advantage of his bargain prices as contactless payment wasn’t available!”

Last week, Jeremy publicly tweeted a stark warning to those wanting to visit his farm shop.

The Top Gear star told fans they “can’t have a selfie” and to stay in their cars, as he prepared to reopen his shop.

His warning came after the Government issued advice about social distancing as the coronavirus outbreak continues.

The Government has warned citizens to stay two metres apart from those outside of their household and only leave their homes when necessary.

In view of his 7.1 million Twitter followers, he wrote: “People of Chipping Norton.

“My farm shop will open at 11. Only potatoes on offer. Panic buyers welcome. Don’t get out of your car.

“Two things. To maintain minimum safe distance, it’s cash only. And no you can’t have a f***ing selfie.”

At the Squat Shop, named after his farm Diddly Squat, he sold potatoes for £1.02 per 2kg, which he claimed was “less than Aldi”.

Last month, the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire host apologised to a visitor after “nightmare” muddy conditions disrupted their visit to his farm.

At first, the father-of-three wrote: “Very many thanks to all the people who came to my farm shop today. I hope you enjoy your potatoes.”

In response to this, a Twitter fan wrote: “We’re gutted, pulled up outside but too muddy for an 8 month old and a pushchair.

“But we’ll be back one day. Looked really busy so best of luck with it.”

Jeremy replied: “I know. B****y nightmare. Sorry.”

The presenter opened up his farm shop in anticipation of his new Amazon Prime series I Bought The Farm.

His new show is an eight part series which shows him attempting to run his own working farm, which he began working on in Autumn last year.
