Jeremy Clarkson, 61, opened his Diddly Squat Farm shop in the Cotswolds last year. It’s now been claimed he has lost his appeal against a planning decision about the materials used on his roof. The materials used for the roof weren’t “visually harmonious” with neighbouring Cotswolds properties, the Daily Mail online reports.

The former Top Gear star was granted permission to construct the store on the understanding that any materials used for the roof would be approved by officials before work began.

It is believed a building contractor was unaware of the condition and used a green steel sheet roof without permission.

The father-of-three is said to have appealed to keep the cheaper roof, but this has been declined.

A source told the Daily Mail online: “As the application has been refused he will have to change it.”

It is said that locals had already voiced their objections to the plans when it was approved.

The article was shared on his Diddly Squat Farm’s Instagram page today.

Believed to have been posted by Jeremy, it read: “Do you think they’ll let me take it off carefully?”

Many of the page’s 136,000 followers flocked to his post to comment.

One commented: “Great marketing for your little farm shop.”

A second added: “Unbelievably expensive roof!”

“Get your hammer collection out,” a third joked.

Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Jeremy and Chipping Norton Council for comment.

Jeremy has since followed up his post with a picture of the entrance to his shop.

“For Rob & all our other four wheeled friends,” he commented.

The car enthusiast took on farming duties for his new show I Bought The Farm.

Filming for the show was put on hold due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Jeremy shares his duties with his girlfriend Lisa Hogan, who he started dating in 2017.

Earlier this week, he celebrated his 61st birthday.

Taking to his personal Instagram page, he shared a video of Lisa filming the pouring snow outside.

He commented: ”Lockdown birthday.”
