A Clarkson's Farm star has spoken out about the importance of talking with others, ahead of mental health awareness week. 

Kaleb Cooper - one of the stars of the show and farm manager to Jeremy Clarkson - has said he thinks that farmers should go to the pub at least once a week to talk through their worries. 

In a recent Instagram reel, Kaleb explained that he had just returned from the pub with Jeremy and another four farmers. 

"I firmly believe every single farmer should go to the pub maybe once a week on a rainy day like today and just chat," he told his 2.3 million followers. 

"Cause in terms of mental health, it does you a world of good to talk."

The young farmer then said that anyone in the local area near Chadlington could reach out to him and they could go "have a few coffees" - before smirking to the camera.

The sage advice comes ahead of Mental Health Awareness Week from May 13 to 19 May, which provides an opportunity to focus on improving mental health and tackling stigma. 

The annual event began in 2001 and this year's theme is "Movement: Moving more for our mental health”.

Previous themes have revolved around anxiety, loneliness and nature which are all relevant to many in the community - including farmers like Kaleb.
