Clarkson's Farm star Kaleb Cooper hit with fines while visiting London for first time

Clarkson’s Farm star Kaleb Cooper has said he was hit with fines when he visited London for the first time.

The 25-year-old appeared on Claudia Winkleman’s podcast and told stand-in host Alex Jones that he was left with fines to pay after his visit.

Kaleb said he was sent to London to sell the wasabi that he and Jeremy Clarkson grew on Diddly Squat Farm in the Cotswolds, as seen on the first series of the hit show.

Speaking about the incident, the Amazon star explained: “I was in a place I didn’t know, I got three parking tickets, I got a congestion charge fine, what else was there?

“I drove in a bus lane, I think it cost me a £1000 to drive down to London that day.”

Alex, 46, empathised with Kaleb over getting used to London when you’re not from there after she moved to the capital from Wales.

“It is tricky, I’ve lived here a while and I still get parking tickets all the time.”

To make matters worse, the farmer admitted he thought he may be getting fined once again after potentially driving in the wrong lane that morning.

He continued: “I think I went in a bus lane this morning, I’m just gonna own up so whoever wants to send me the fine, I do apologise.”

Kaleb doesn’t seem to be a fan of London as he recently said he refuses to move to the Big Smoke anytime soon.

The television personality said that if his two children, Oscar, two, and daughter Willa, ever move to London when they grow up, he wouldn’t be coming to visit them.

He told The Independent: “Hopefully one day, my little boy and little girl will want to go into farming, but I want them to know if they become an accountant or lawyer and they want to go to London – they can come and visit me. I’m not going there.”

Clarkson’s Farm is available to stream on Prime Video.
