Jeremy Clarkson Gives Fans A Worrying Health Update – “I Will Suffer From An Agonising And Premature Death”

The Grand Tour host Jeremy Clarkson has revealed a shocking health update to The Sun.

The former Top Gear host has explained to fans that doctors have told him that his worrying rise in blood pressure is most likely down to the incredible amount of high-strength nicotine gum he chews after he quit smoking forty a day for 40 years a few years ago.

Clarkson explained that he replaced the nasty habit with the high-strength chewing gum, but that is now also causing him issues.

He commented:

“For most of my adult life, stern-faced doctors warned me that if I didn’t give up smoking, I would suffer from an agonising and premature death. So six years ago I bit the bullet and replaced my 40-a-day habit with sheet after sheet of full-strength nicotine gum.

“And this week a doctor said it’s causing a worrying rise in my blood pressure and that if I don’t pack it in soon, I will suffer from an agonising and premature death.”

Clarkson gave up smoking after he caught pneumonia whilst on holiday six years ago. At the time, he explained in an interview with The Sunday Times that he was told by everyone that he should give up smoking immediately and he was in such a bad way that he couldn’t even make a lighter work. He said:

“I was told, by everyone, that I had to stop. Immediately.

“I had no choice at the time because the blood poisoning was so bad and I was so racked with the resultant rigors that I couldn’t work a cigarette lighter.”
