Jeremy Clarkson has named two ‘randy’ stud rams after footballer Wayne Rooney and Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

The Top Gear host – who has spent the pandemic filming his new series Clarkson’s Farm on his 1,000 acre farm in Oxfordshire – made the hilarious reveal in a clip from his upcoming Amazon show, saying: ‘We’re about to bring [out] old Leonardo and Wayne, as I’ve called them,’ before releasing the animals into his flock of sheep.

Noticing that the herd’s ewes were drawn to the two rams in a clip seen by The Sun, the outspoken TV host, 61, joked: ‘You randy little b**ards, you. Wayne is a bigger sh**ger than Leonardo.’

He added: ‘Wayne’s going to go after the slightly older ones, Leonardo’s taking the younger ones.’

The love lives of both Wayne, 35, and Leonardo, 46, have made headlines over the years.

Former England footballer Wayne was accused of cheating on his wife Coleen Rooney with a female escort in 2019, while The Revenant actor is known to mostly date much younger women, currently being in a relationship with 23-year-old model Camila Morrone.

It comes after Jeremy recently revealed he fears he’ll die this year.

The presenter believes he could pass away sometime in 2021 after a number of his friends and family all met their maker when they turned 61.

He told Saga magazine in May: ‘Everyone I know dies at 61. All my friends did, my dad did, that’s when you go… If I make it to 62, I’ll be here forever.

‘When dad died, I thought of him as an old man, but I don’t feel old. When I see myself on screen I think, “Who’s that?” I always expect a 19 year old to be looking back at me. But old people don’t look like we think they should.’

His latest series captures an intense, backbreaking and frequently hilarious year in Jeremy’s life as he attempts to run his Diddly Squat Farm despite having no farming experience.

They contend with the worst farming weather in decades, disobedient animals, unresponsive crops, and an unexpected pandemic.

Jeremy quickly discovers that a modern farmer must be a conservationist, scientist, shepherd, shopkeeper, midwife, engineer, accountant and tractor driver, often at the same time.

Offering viewers a different side of the often outspoken presenter, Jeremy’s farm failures have real emotional consequences on the TV star.

Jeremy, completely out of his comfort zone, is forced to lean on others as he strives to grow crops, rear sheep and pull off environmental projects that are close to his heart.

The two-minute trailer for the show sees the car fanatic roaming around his sprawling grounds on a tractor, and at one point he even crashes the vehicle, exclaiming: ‘Oh, s**t,’ as he drives into the roof of a barn.

At one point, Jeremy attempts to round up a herd of sheep as an unimpressed member of his team asks: ‘Have you ever looked after sheep before?’

In another part of the trainer, an aerial shot of Jeremy’s farm reveals it has been flooded as the region is hit by ‘a month’s worth of torrential rain in a day’.

Jeremy also touches upon the coronavirus pandemic while talking to a member of his team, telling him: ‘I’m pushing 60, [and have] smoked a lot of cigarettes, if I get it…’

Before Jeremy can finish, the farmer interrupts: ‘Yeah, there’s not a lot of hope.’

As the trailer concludes, a voice over from Jeremy explains: ‘I am happy here. I’ve got a choice: I can either go back to London, and resume my old life..’

The TV star is once again interrupted by a team member, who interjects by saying: ‘Yeah, do that.’

The presenter has run the Diddly Squat Farm Shop in Cotswold’s village Chipping Norton with partner Lisa Hogan, 46, since 2020.

Lisa made a quick appearance in the trailer, however it is unclear whether Jeremy’s children – Emily, Katya and Finlo, from his marriage to second wife Frances Cain – will appear in the show.
