Jeremy Clarkson's righthand man at Diddly Squat took to Instagram to welcome some new additions to his farm

Kaleb Cooper quickly became a fan-favourite on Clarkson's Farm thanks to his chemistry with Jeremy Clarkson and encyclopaedic knowledge of Chipping Norton's farming landscape.

As both Clarkson, Cooper and the rest of the Diddly Squat family film the show's third season, the pair - as well as Lisa Hogan - have been sharing regular updates on their social media pages.

Cooper's latest update, however, appears to suggest he'll have to leave life in the tractor and other jobs on the fields behind him for a bit in favour of something more hands on.

He revealed in a post on Instagram: "I was too excited not to share this so I’m posting it now.

"I own 21 dairy cows that are being milked locally to me.

"Guess I’m going back milking in the mornings to do my part," he added before he explained more about the role change in the accompanying clip.

He said: "So I own - I don't normally do this - but I own 21 dairy cows.

"I brought them with a friend of mine, he milks them to help him get the grant for the robots and stuff like that.

"And I'm gonna take you on the journey to show you how the robots work as well as all the dairy cows... look at that," Cooper added as he flipped the camera around to show one of the animals.

Cooper signed off his clip by admitting he was "super excited" to return to the "dairy farming" aspect of his career.

Whether Cooper's foray into the world of dairy farming has an impact on his work on Diddly Squat remains to be seen.

However, while Cooper has welcomed a big change to his day job, Clarkson and Hogan confirmed recently there's been a bit of a mix-up at their farm too.

After back and forth with West Oxfordshire County Council, Clarkson was finally able to build an extended car park for his farm shop's guests.

The application was initially declined along with planning permission for a restaurant, but upon appeal, permission was granted for the car park.

The restaurant, however, remains a no-go despite the former Top Gear star appealing.

Hogan shared the "exciting news" on Instagram in July as she shared a clip of the freshly-laid space.

"Look at that, it's all happening," Hogan said to her followers. "And guess who's the first to park on it... oh yeah!"

All the latest developments will be documented in Clarkson's Farm season three, although fans are currently in the dark as to when the show will return.

Clarkson dropped the disappointing update earlier this year that filming wouldn't be wrapped until October.

With the editing and post-production processes to come after, fans may be waiting a while to see Diddly Squat back on screens.
