I spent the day on Jeremy Clarkson’s farm – and this is what Diddly Squat Farm is really like

While watching the hit show Clarkson’s Farm, I always pondered what life working with Jeremy Clarkson, Lisa Hogan and their plucky farmhand Kaleb Cooper on the farm would be like. Are things quite as disastrous as the show makes out? Are the shop goodies as tasty as they look? And are the piglets really that adorable?  So when I was invited to visit Diddly Squart Farm for the release of season 3, I couldn’t resist. Here’s how I found a day on Clarkson’s Farm…  Based in Chipping Norton, I visited the farm after a fun night stay at the luxurious private member’s hotel, Soho Farmhouse, loved by celebs including the Beckhams, Brad Pitt and the Clooneys. That being said, the countryside charm of the Cotswolds combined with the high-end luxury of my little piglet hotel suite made me wonder about Jeremy’s venture.  I popped over to say hello to Gerald Enjoying the lap of luxury so close to Jeremy’s farm, was the reality show’s well-documented lack of glamour all a bit of a set-up for …

Nicole Scherzinger’s Epic Oliviers Speech Included Tears, A Trip-Up And An Impressive Squat

Nicole Scherzinger’s Epic Oliviers Speech Included Tears, A Trip-Up And An Impressive Squat

Nicole Scherzinger celebrated her win at this year’s Oliviers with an acceptance speech that reminded everyone what made her such a hit on the X Factor all those years. On Sunday night, the former Pussycat Dolls star scooped the prize for Best Actress In A Musical for her unique performance as Norma Desmond in the recent Sunset Boulevard revival (a role previously played by the likes of Patti LuPone and Glenn Close). Collecting the award during the ceremony, which was live-streamed on YouTube, Nicole tripped slightly on the stage, and began her speech by joking: “First of all, I’d like to thank God for saving me from that trip right there.” The chart-topping singer continued: “I want to thank all of you, the London theatre community, for wrapping your arms and legs around me like a spider monkey, and embracing me as one of your own.” She went on to thank her “family back in Hawaii”, naming her mum as the reason that her take on Norma Desmond is “the warrior that she is” before …

Out-squatted: Handyman Flash Shelton will squat with your squatters — until they leave

Out-squatted: Handyman Flash Shelton will squat with your squatters — until they leave

On a winter morning in Woodland Hills, the “Squatter Hunter” slowly approaches a posh two-story home dressed in all black, armed with a Glock 26 pistol, stun gun, pepper spray and baton. His body camera is on. His two-man squad lurks behind him. They’ve spent four days in surveillance, learning the habits of the man squatting inside. They’ve waited for him to leave, but he never does. So they knock on the front door, and when the occupant opens it, they barge inside. Their plan: live with the squatter. Dirty the bathroom. Take the best spot on the couch. Commandeer the TV remote. Blast music. Drink his coffee. Eat his Cheetos. Out-squat him. And film it all for YouTube. As the body camera footage shows, the team starts installing Ring cameras throughout the home to document every interaction. The Squatter Hunter, Flash Shelton, hands the man a lease with Shelton’s name on it. “You’re an intruder in my house now,” he says. Shelton explains that the man is there illegally, and the team is not …
