He was the unexpected star of Clarkson’s Farm – winning over viewers with his incredible work ethic and love of the job.
Now Kaleb Cooper – who welcomed a daughter, Willa, this week and also has son Oscar, two – is trying something new – with the announcement of a live theatre tour.
The World According To Kaleb will see the young farmer leave the home in Chipping Norton he shares with girlfriend Taya and their children for a 33-day UK tour next year.
Kaleb, 24, shot to fame in the Amazon Prime series in which he was seen giving direct and no-nonsense advice to the former Top Gear presenter.
He became a fan favourite during his often-frustrating quest to teach Clarkson about farming, as well as his amusing comments on life, the universe and everything in between.
Kaleb told the PA news agency that ever since the launch of the first series in 2021 he had been more and more in demand outside his home town.
“I’m a firm believer, if I want to go out there and learn something, you’ve got to go out then and go full, head down, go for it,” said the dad of two.
“Yes, it’s a fear, or you know, a nervousness thing, but I think I’m a firm believer of… going towards it and facing your fear with brave shoulders.”
He said he was excited to take his show on the road, and interact with fellow farmers around the country.
“Hopefully some of the farmers will come out and have a good enjoyable day watching the show,” he told PA.
“And I can have a chat to them after and see what their soil types are, what type of crops they grow in, are they struggling with the rain, what type of cattle they have.”
He added: “I think I think of the world very differently from, for example, someone living in the city who just literally works nine to five job.
“I don’t work, I don’t have a job. I don’t believe that I have a job. What I do for a living, it’s a way of life.”
Kaleb was recently invited to a meeting on farming at Downing Street, and met with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, which he described as a “remarkable experience”.
“I must admit when I got the invite, I was like ‘wow, I don’t think I can really turn this down’,” he said.
“Just to go and be a face of the farming industry. I got my points across to the PM, which we said in private and, you know, I believe that he’s listening to farmers.”
He added that he hoped that Rishi would come along to one of his tour shows, but that he would not be offering him a discount.
“I’m gonna send him the ticket link,” he said.
At the shows, Kaleb will give audiences the chance to participate in some interesting rural pastimes, as well as highlighting some of the many challenges that British farmers face today and sharing thoughts on how to make a difference and support them.
Fans can expect Kaleb to rattle off his famously strong views on many things – including sheep, goats, New York City, personal style, and Jeremy.
Kaleb said his co-star still “doesn’t listen to anyone”, but acknowledged that he “knew a thing or two” about farming.
“When you go into another industry, it’s another thing to learn and of course he’s been doing it for four years now.
“So if I said he hadn’t learned anything, I’d be wrong.”
