Despite beginning production on the fourth season of The Grand Tour, Jeremy Clarkson is working on another Amazon series at the same time.

Back in May, the former Top Gear presenter revealed that he'd be launching a show about his new-found love for farming.

Since then, he's been teasing his Instagram followers by sharing a number of very rural images.

For his latest post, he shared an image of an allotment with the caption: "Fully rural now."

Titled I Bought A Farm, the new Amazon series will see Clarkson tackle a number of serious issues, including the food shortage crisis.

The presenter told The Sunday Times: "Scientists calculate that we have just 90 years before we run out of food, because of soil depletion. That’s just 90 more harvests."

On what to expect from the show, he added: “This is not Kate Humble — much as I like Kate Humble — with 20 acres, bottle-feeding a lamb, or a TV presenter who grows veg in his back garden. This is actual farming: life, death and form filling.

"We're not making Countryfile. We’ll be showing it warts and all. For example, I have no view on badger culling in terms of whether it’s necessary, but if it’s happening we will not shy away from putting it in the programme."

While I Bought A Farm will tackle important issues such as these, there is still talk of quad bikes, hovercrafts and even sheep-herding drones featuring in the show. So there may be something there for motor-heads to enjoy.

A release date is yet to be announced for I Bought A Farm, and The Grand Tour season 4 is currently in production.
