    And the stars of the show were out in force to support Jeremy on Thursday night.

    Il presentatore, who cut a casual figure in a khaki jacket and jeans, was joined by his Irish girlfriend Lisa who was wrapped up warm in a bobble hat and scarf.

    Kaleb Cooper, who Jeremy affectionately calls his ‘tractor driver’, was also on hand to ring in the launch.

    The former Top Gear host appeared in his element as he stacked crates of beer in the brewery.

    Parlando con Il Sole, Jeremy admitted his marketing ideas have been shot down, quipping his slogan encouraging alcoholics to give his tipple a try was overruled by the Advertising Standards Authority.

    ‘If you’re an alcoholic, don’t fight it, feed itfell foul of the regulator,’ ha ammesso.

    ‘There’s so much you can’t say. Per esempio, “This is a delicious breakfast beer— they won’t allow it. It’s very boring. Fondamentalmente, all I’m allowed to say is, “This is lager”.’

    Growing the barley on his farm, the lager will be available for sale online and in Jeremy’s farm shop but he hopes it will eventually be stocked in pubs and supermarkets.

    The star admitted that he was inspired to launch the new venture after being told at school that he ‘couldn’t organise a p*** up in a brewery’.

    ‘I wanted to have a brewery so I could have a p ***-up in it. Now I can go back to my old careers teacher and say, “You see? I told you I could do it!” It is a very well-made beer. I’m out for world domination. Nothing less will do.

    The lager could signal more catastrophes on the farm though, as viewers of his hit Amazon Prime show Clarkson’s Farm, have witnessed. The second series is currently being filmed, and Jeremy said brewing his own beer has made his antics ‘ten times worse’.

    ‘I’ve had so many accidents on the tractor,’ he confessed. ‘The other night I got into bed at 2am and Lisa asked if I’d had a good day and I said, 'Sì, it’s been brilliant’. The next morning Lisa comes in and tells me it’s devastation outside. The gate posts were knocked over, bins everywhere, the barn door was smashed in.

    ‘It’s like that bit in The Wolf Of Wall Street when he thinks he hasn’t had an accident. Now we’ve got our own beer, the opportunity for accidents has gone through the roof.

    Di nuovo dentro 2017 Jeremy cut down on his drinking after a near-deadly bout of pneumonia and blood poisoning.

    Jeremy, who lives on the farm with his girlfriend Lisa, 46, told The Sun: ‘Lisa and I have drank ourselves silly.

    ‘When you’re farming one of the joys is the sun going down and leaning on a fence and looking at your sheep or your crops or watch the changing of the seasons.

    ‘So has it made me fitter? No. And the other thing about farming is how automated it is, you never have to actually walk anywhere, you just drive everywhere it’s fantastic. I’m the unfittest I’ve ever been.

    Although Jeremy has owned Diddly Squat Farm since 2008, he’s only been running it for the past couple of years.
