His farming adventures this summer delighted television viewers, and he launched last night a new beer.
However, it has now been discovered that Jeremy Clarkson (Grand Tour presenter) is the sponsor of Chadlington Football Club.
The club announced today that its new first-team kit will feature the Diddly Squat Farm logo.
Diddly Squat, the Cotswolds store made famous by Clarkson’s Farm (the hit Amazon Prime flyer-on-the wall documentary about farming), is Diddly Squat.
Clarkson becomes the third celebrity to invest money in football clubs after Rob McElhenney (Hollywood stars) and Ryan Reynolds (Hollywood).
Diddly Squat uploaded an Instagram image showing the side of the non-league and wrote, teasingly: “Eat your heart out Ryan Reynolds.”
Diddly Squat agreed to sponsor Chadlington Football Club, in exchange for their logo being printed on the first team kit. The farm shop posted an Instagram photo of Ryan Reynolds’ side and teased that it would support Chadlington Football Club.

Reynolds and Rob McElhenney (pictured below) were able to pose for photographs with supporters last month during their visit at Wrexham’s Racecourse Ground.
Chadlington Football Club stated in a statement that it had reached a settlement with both Jeremy Clarkson, and Lisa Hogan (Clarkson’s girlfriend). The deal will include the Diddly Squat logo being used on the First Team kit. It also has the possibility of other tie ups.
“As both a locally owned and well-respected business, it’s great that the Farm supports the Football Club. Their generosity is much appreciated.
Jeremy, Lisa and I look forward coming to the club soon to see a game!
Reynolds (Deadpool) and McElhenney (star in It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia) took photos last month with fans during a visit at Wrexham’s Racecourse Ground.
The pair sealed their takeover of the National League side back in February, purchasing it from the Wrexham Supporters’ Trust and immediately investing £2million into the club.
Reynolds answered The Telegraph’s question about why he was involved: “It wasn’t a joke.

“Wrexham AFC is a community that we take very seriously. If a football club wants to succeed, then the entire community must do well.
Last night, Clarkson celebrated the launch of his latest business venture – beer.
Presenter was dressed casually in jeans and a khaki jacket at Diddly Squat’s farm. Hogan was also present and was covered in scarf and bobble hat.
Clarkson acknowledged that his marketing strategies were defeated when he spoke with The Sun. Clarkson’s slogan encouraging people to try alcoholic beverages was overruled in part by The Advertising Standards Authority.
“If you are an alcoholic don’t fight it. Feed it,” he said.
“There are so many things you don’t know.” For example, ‘This is a delicious breakfast beer’ – they won’t allow it. It is very monotonous. This is basically all that I can say.
Growing the barley on his farm, the lager will be available for sale online and in Clarkson’s shop – but he hopes it will eventually be stocked in pubs and supermarkets.
