Jeremy Clarkson is said to have stormed off in a rage after abandoning his restaurant opening at Diddly Squat Farm.
The TV presenter, 62, opted to open a restaurant on his farm, as seen on his hit series Clarkson’s Farm on Amazon Prime Video.
After the local council overturned his plans to turn his old lambing barn into a restaurant, Jeremy settled for transforming an abandoned barn instead.
However, preparations for the opening day were thrown into disarray when Jeremy and the team were faced with electrical faults in the venue.
There was soon a pile up of visitors arriving in their cars as the restuarant was not ready to seat them.

According to The Mirror, the stress of the situation caused Jeremy to launch into a foul-mouthed rant before he drove off.
When asking if he could get rid of a mop and bucket, someone said: ‘I think we need to mop the floor first.’
Jeremy replied: ‘We can’t, the guests are here. F*** it, it’s a farm.’
He was then said to have been heard saying to someone else: ‘Here’s a tip if you have got a job to do, get out of the car and f****** run because we need to move this car.’
He then quipped in his voiceover: ‘At this point, I realised that my inner Gordon Ramsey was doing more harm than good, so I made a decision.’
Jeremy was then seen telling land agent Charlie Ireland: ‘I’m going to move myself now.’
He then got in his car and drove off, but later returned and calmed down when things were back in order.
Diddly Squat Farm reopened on Thursday with higher prices – but appeared quieter than in recent times.

Uh Oh! Jeremy’s co-stars were left confused when he fled the restaurant during the opening
Jeremy closed the store after he caused outrage over his comments over Meghan Markle – but opened its doors again to mark the launch of the second series of his Amazon show.
Visitor numbers were visibly down but figures show the store has raised its prices over the last two years – and is hundreds of per cent higher than high street supermarkets like Aldi.
A small queue of 14 visitors mostly from London and the South East braved the cold temperatures as the shop was opened.
It is a far car from the massive crowds and tails of cars which flooded the farm last year and regularly annoyed locals.
Prices at the farm are also up, with the price of a large loaf of sourdough bread now standing at just under £6.
A box of eggs costs £3.20, while milk from Clarkson’s ‘cow juice’ milk dispenser now costs £1.20 – all up on 2021 prices.
The first customers to pay at the counter this morning spend £134 on just a handful of items.
Visitors, warmed by £2.50 small filter coffees, remarked that they were ‘surprised’ at how few people arrived – though by 10:30am the car park had become fuller.
Jeremy’s return to filming comes after he was left battling to save his career amid the fallout from his column, with both ITV and Amazon hinting at dropping the former Top Gear star.
In the article, published in The Sun, Clarkson wrote he dreamed of the Meghan Markle being forced to ‘parade naked’ through British towns, prompting a record-breaking 25,100 complaints to The Independent Press Standards Organisation.
Jeremy later apologised admitting he had ‘put my foot in it’ and accepted his language was ‘disgraceful’ and that he was ‘profoundly sorry’. The Sun also apologised.
Meanwhile, the Duke of Sussex branded the article about his wife ‘horrific, hurtful and cruel’ and questions were raised about whether Clarkson would keep his lucrative deal with ITV.
