Jeremy Clarkson urges Scots to forget about independence

It shows the car enthusiast in a rain-soaked and misty field, as he says: "I'm going to be spending the next year in the rain making a show about farming for Amazon Prime.

"This means that people all over the world will be able to watch me using a thousand acres of the Cotswolds to make thousands of tons of beer and bread and vegetable oil and lamb chops and jumpers.

"Of course to be a farmer you have to be an agronomist, a businessman, a politician, an accountant, a vet and a mechanic.

"And I'm none of those things. I don't even know what agronomist means."

"We're excited to bring this latest UK-produced Amazon Original series to Prime Video viewers around the world next year. Wishing you lots of luck Jeremy... what could possibly go wrong?"

Clarkson will again work alongside former Top Gear producer Andy Wilman, who will be senior producer on his farming series.
