Jeremy Clarkson has revealed that he almost lost his leg in a freak accident on Diddly Squat Farm and for a week after wasn’t able to walk properly.
Talking to Jonathan Ross on the Jonathan Ross show – airing this Saturday – he admits that farming has more accidents “than all the other industries put together”.
He told the talk show host:
“I got this thing called a telehandler, it’s like a JCB thing. I thought ‘I’ll just use its front to push the post in’.
“It got halfway into the ground and the fence was leaning on it and it flicked back. How it didn’t take my leg off… I didn’t walk properly for a week. This was a quarter of a tonne of fence post.”
Jeremy Clarkson, accompanied by his co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May, has recently released the trailer for the upcoming episode of The Grand Tour, named Carnage A Trois. You can watch it below:
Here’s what Amazon has to say about the episode:
In this second lockdown special, the trio dive into the bizarre world of French car culture. On an epic road trip starting in the Welsh hills, they dish up a hair-raising mountain climb, bomb defusals, propeller-powered cars, helicopter stunts and the most thrilling race of their lives before reaching the English Channel for a jaw dropping medieval climax. And a soupcon of French art house cinema.♦ Follow Grand Tour Nation on Google News
