The Grand Tour host Jeremy Clarkson has been crowned the UK’s sexiest man in a recent poll conducted by IllicitEncounters, a website for married people seeking affairs. The surprising win comes as a shock to many, given that farming is not usually associated with sex appeal. However, Clarkson’s rugged bad boy farmer vibe seems to have won over the hearts of over 2,000 women who participated in the poll.
The former Top Gear host beat out tough competition from heartthrobs such as Idris Elba and Ryan Reynolds to claim the top spot. Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker came in second, followed by rugby player Mike Tindall in third place.
According to a spokeswoman for the poll, Clarkson’s wax jacket and tweed shirt, combined with his bad boy farmer persona, proved irresistible to women over the age of 30. While winning the title may not earn him anything tangible, it’s sure to give him some bragging rights on the farm. She explained:
“With the wax jacket and tweed shirt, clearly, Clarkson’s bad boy farmer vibe is working for the over 30s.
“Landing top spot in our table won’t earn him diddly squat, but I’m sure it will give him bragging rights on the farm.”
Clarkson’s Oxfordshire farm has gained global recognition thanks to his Prime Video show, Clarkson’s Farm. The show follows Clarkson’s misadventures as he tries to run a successful farm, and has garnered a loyal following of fans.
Despite the recent run-in with West Oxfordshire District Council over a planning application for a car park at Diddly Squat Farm, Clarkson’s popularity seems to be on the rise. The council suggested that the farm apply for temporary planning permission for a car park in an alternative location to help solve the parking problems at Diddly Squat Farm.
Clarkson’s Farm Season Two is currently airing on Amazon Prime, and fans are eagerly tuning in to see what antics Clarkson gets up to next.
In addition to beating out heartthrobs like Ryan Reynolds and Idris Elba, Clarkson also bested Martin Lewis, founder of Money Saving Expert, and Volodymyr Zelensky, President of Ukraine, to claim the top spot.
