He later confirmed that his first stop would be Nottingham as he joked that the theatre was a ‘big old barn’ and said he was ‘looking forward to it’.
He penned: ‘The first available date to book tickets for my national tour is going to be in a big old barn called the Nottingham Royal Concert Hall!’
Kaleb got engaged to long-term girlfriend Taya on Boxing Day and they have a son called Oscar, two, with a second baby on the way.
Back in April 2022, Kaleb, said he will never leave the countryside, despite having amassed a huge fan base.
Born and bred in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, a small town with a population of just 6,337, Kaleb says he never wants to leave, despite his immense success.
Speaking to The Times magazine back the, he revealed the furthest he has ever travelled from his village is London, which he had visited three times at that point, and hated, describing it as ‘f****** awful’.
And talking about going to Stow-on-the-Wold, which is 18 miles away from Chipping Norton, he said: ‘I got a nosebleed when we went to Stow.’
The prospect of travelling abroad is even less likely, as the farming expert does not currently own a passport.
It comes after Kaleb found himself bewildered when he encountered a revolving door when the Clarkson’s Farm team returned to London for the Farm to Fork summit.
He had never seen a revolving door before and was so blown away by seeing one, he went round it a few times to get the full experience.
Jeremy, 63, even posted a video to Instagram showing Kaleb smiling at the revelation, saying: ‘He has never seen a revolving door before’.
Kaleb branded the experience ‘amazing’ and couldn’t believe his luck.

Can’t believe it! Jeremy posted the video of his friend and colleague going round in circles through the door on Instagram on Wednesday
In a spin: Kaleb is well known for hating London preferring the simplicity of the countryside
The moment was reminiscent of a scene in the film Elf, where the main character Buddy discovers a revolving door after moving to New York following an upbringing in the North Pole.
Fans wrote in the comments: ‘God bless Kaleb, one of the purest persons there is.’
‘We need a sitcom of just Kaleb trying new things out that blow his mind on the show it was paying for parking in the London & here it’s a revolving door.’
‘I bet if he goes through it fast enough and really gets it spinning he’ll come out the other end with a new perm.’
‘Hahahaha omg I love Jeremy’s reaction of Caleb not seeing or knowing something is basic to all people.’
‘Wrap him in cotton wool and hide him away he is a national treasure.’
Loving it: Fans were so delighted by the sweet video and wrote; ‘Protect this man’ and branded him a ‘national treasure’
Kaleb was brought onto the programme as they needed a tractor driver. Despite his initial nerves, he quickly seemed to grow in confidence, regularly branding former Top Gear host Jeremy a ‘f***ing idiot’ – and being called a ‘rural halfwit’ in return.
Speaking about his co-star, Kaleb has said: ‘He never listens to me. I tell him to do one thing and he does the complete opposite. I get very annoyed when he messes up. That is genuine.’
He says he was never intimidated by the TV because ‘I knew what I was doing and he didn’t’.
But underneath the jokes there is a genuine friendship between the pair, with Kaleb adding: ‘We just laugh all the time, our banter and sense of humour are very much the same. He’s a great chap.’
