He’s used to mowing much longer grass while filming scenes for Clarkson’s Farm on Amazon Prime – so it’s no surprise Kaleb Cooper struggled to adjust to his new surroundings after being asked to prepare the pitch at Old Trafford.

Man United lock horns with Chelsea on Wednesday night to begin a run of games that will be aired on the streaming giant across the festive period.

And to mark the occasion, Amazon decided to send a star of one of their top shows to ready the turf at the Theatre of Dreams.

Cooper – looked shocked himself to have been given the huge task as footage showed him walking out into the stadium before beginning to cut the fine grass with a pitch mower, before claiming, ‘I take more off my chin!’

‘The Premier League returns to Prime Video and they’ve employed me for the day to get the pitch ready,’ Cooper says in a voiceover.

He then admits to slacking on his mowing when working on the farm, saying: ‘I cut my grass when it’s, you know, there,’ before moving his hand above his head.

Cooper also pokes fun at his accuracy while laying out the pitch lines, acknowledging his had ‘a proper wiggle on’.

Not satisfied with his work towards the end of the clip, Cooper then puts his head on the turf before incredibly getting out a pair of scissors, before saying, ‘precision is key.’

Cooper is then spotted whizzing around the outside of Old Trafford on his traditional tractor on a memorable day for the 25-year-old.
