Jeremy Clarkson: ‘Never’ The Grand Tour host makes surprising Top Gear revelation

Jeremy Clarkson, 59, presented BBC show Top Gear from 1988 for 10 years before making a return in 2002.

Following an altercation with one of the show’s producers, Jeremy was sacked from the show in 2015.

Jeremy and his co-stars Richard Hammond, 49, and James May, 56, moved to Amazon Prime where they launched their own show The Grand Tour.

Since starting up his new programme, Jeremy admitted he has never watched Top Gear with new hosts.

Never saw Evans do it, never saw LeBlanc

Chris Evans took over the gig alongside Friends actor, Matt LeBlanc, but after negative feedback, the former quit the series.

Matt appeared on one more series before new presenters, Andrew Flintoff and Paddy McGuinness took over the reigns.

But with the new hosts on the show, Jeremy admitted he hasn’t seen them on it, nor anybody else.

When asked if he’s watched the reboot, he spilled to The Sun: “No, no. Never saw Evans do it, never saw LeBlanc.”

In the same interview, the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? host, opened up on his two stone weight loss.

Jeremy said he kickstarted his diet last year and credited shedding the pounds thanks to eating salads instead of steaks.

“I had salad for lunch and water – well, I had water because you lot were coming. But I had a salad nicoise and a glass of water. I lose two stone last year,” he added.

When asked if he was boosting his weight loss by adding gym sessions on top his diet, the star said: “No, no, that would be unseemly.

“The Queen doesn’t go to the gym and she doesn’t run and she’s 93 and she’s all right.

“Apparently she only has a forkful, she only has a tiny bit,” he continued. “That’s what I’ve heard.

“She’ll sit down and just have one little bit of mousse and a bit of lettuce leaf.”

Elsewhere, Jeremy recently reflected on his earnings and told The Times his wages are deserved as “your entire life is taken over”.

He said: “’Selfie! Selfie! Want photo! Photo!’ It’a constant, it’s the soundtrack of my life.”

Elaborating, he added: “You get that for your entire life being taken over.

“So when you look at all those BBC salaries that are published, you think, ‘You get that for an hour’s work,’ No, you don’t.

You get that for your entire life being taken over by, ‘Selfie, selfie, photo, photo.’ Somebody has to pay for that.”
