TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson has been left heartbroken after a death over Christmas at Clarkson’s Diddly Squat Farm. The former Top Gear star revealed the sad news that he and his partner Lisa Hogan were dealt a sad blow before Christmas this year after Lisa’s beloved horse passed away. 26-year-old Bertie passed away as the TV presenter revealed both he and Lisa were left ‘upset’ at the animal’s death.

Clarkson also hinted at more tragedy over the Christmas period with a cryptic statement as he described the details and the sad discovery of Bertie’s death in his column for The Times.

Writing in his column, he explained:

“It wasn’t a fun event, even for me, and I didn’t like it one bit.” He then added: “When Lisa’s horse died, I was upset because I could see she was. And because I would have to deal with it.” He also described finding Bertie already dead at Diddly Squat Farm as they found the animal “lying on his side, in a stream.”

A dismal Clarkson then wrote:

“At least with all this unpleasantness out of the way, we won’t have to face it tomorrow, which will free up some time for some other unpleasantness.” He added: “A cow getting on to the road and being run over by someone on their way to the petrol station? A sheep mastering the art of self-combustion? A fox in the henhouse again? They’re all possibilities.”

The sad news comes after earlier in December Clarkson gave a worrying health update to fans as he revealed he is “coughing up his spleen” and complained his “body doesn’t work anymore”. Speaking in his column for The Sunday Times, the 63-year-old has described getting “breathless” during walks with his son. The former Grand Tour star said that he tries to walks to Stamford Bridge with his 26-year-old son Finlo, but has admitted that he struggles to keep up.

He then went on to explain that he then can’t concentrate on the first half of the match as he is left coughing from the mild exercise. Jeremy said: “When I hear that a man of my age should do 10,000 steps a day, I just think: ‘Right, and how on earth would I find the time to do that?”

He continued:

“When I go with my son to Stamford Bridge, he pootles along at what people call ‘walking pace’ and to keep up I have to unleash my inner Bannister. Which means that for the first half of the match I can’t concentrate on the football because I’m too busy coughing up my spleen and trying to get my breath back”. He then added that he is noticing that as he ages, “most of [his] body doesn’t really work anymore”.

In summary, Jeremy Clarkson’s recent experiences at Diddly Squat Farm and with his own health reflect a period marked by sorrow and personal challenges.
