Jeremy Clarkson has hit back at a critic of The Grand Tour after a viewer pleaded with the trio, which also includes James May and Richard Hammond, to revert back to ‘serious journalism’.
From breaking Stalin’s house to cracking up over ‘turd’ petrol, the third series of The Grand Tour has been a LOL-a-minute, but according to the JC there is some proper reporting in there.
One fan soon felt the wrath of The Grand Tour’s fandom and host when they wrote: ‘The @thegrandtour is a great show. But do more of the serious journalism like the Jim Clark segment. Fascinating stuff! Well done! @RichardHammond @MrJamesMay @JeremyClarkson.’
However, 58-year-old Jeremy was quick to explain all, replying: ‘You mean like the Lancia/Audi thing and the GT40 piece and the Ford film the week after next and and and.’
In turn, fans of the Amazon Prime series has one question: ‘If you wanted serious journalism watch watch The Grand Tour?’ Fair.
Although, off screen Jeremy has been fighting the good fight by urging his 7.13 million Twitter followers to pick up their plastic bottles – specifically along the coastline of China.
Speaking from a boat, the furious Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? presenter went on an impassioned rant, demanding: ‘People of China, pick your fucking litter up.’
While many applauded the star for his hard work others were quick to point out that, actually, the UK’s beaches aren’t much better.
‘Well here’s an idea. Get off your slovenly a**e and clear it up,’ he snapped.
