Clarkson's Farm star Kaleb Cooper shared a worrying update with fans as he made clear he had been hospitalised. The 26-year-old father-of-two took to social media to post a snap of himself in a hospital ward on Monday.

Young farmer Cooper found fame in the hit Amazon Prime as Jeremy Clarkson's right-hand man.

He works alongside the presenter at Diddly Squat Farm, sharing his expertise and frequently ending up in jokey rows with the former Top Gear star, 64.

In a recent Snapchat obtained by The Star, he posted a picture of himself in hospital, with blue divider curtains in the background.

"I must say I have grown a disliking to being sat in hospitals. Think I'm growing a fear of them," he admitted in the caption.

Cooper has built a strong following on the Amazon Prime show


Clarkson's Farm threw Cooper into the spotlight, but it's clear his main passion is still farming and all things agriculture.

Taking to his Instagram last week, he announced he'd be releasing his third book on the subject, It's A Farming Thing, later this year.

"I've got some very exciting news which I'm really really excited about and that is, I've done my first book which is The World According To Kaleb, I've done my second book which is Britain According To Kaleb, and now... This is my third book!" he shared on Instagram.

Fans of the show quickly fell in love with Cooper, who has now built a strong following.

The show launched its third series earlier this year, with filming for series four having already begun.

Clarkson recently shared how one of the newer episodes of the show saw he and Cooper's "biggest ever argument".

When asked if he would be having "phenomenal arguments" with Cooper ahead of the third series airing, Clarkson replied: "I struggle to argue with him about farming because he just knows more than I do (he gets very frustrated with me!)."

He continued: "But when we do things like trying to repair the dam, that's construction, and neither of us really know what we're doing there.

"So that was one of our big arguments. Then he was made to wear health and safety equipment, which nearly killed him because he stepped off the machine still attached to it and hit his head."

Cooper added: "It was a really tricky start to the year, I made the decision to plant some rapeseed even though it was a gamble, and I knew it might not work, but that highlights that farming is a risky job.

"You're risking money all the time, and worse than that, I'm risking someone else's money, but we're a team at the end of the day.

"We might argue but me and Jeremy, Charlie, Gerald, and Lisa, we're all a team and we're all in this together."

On the rows he has with his co-star, he confessed: "I think in this series we have probably our biggest ever argument. But don't get me wrong, I love the man."
