In an interview with The Guardian, the 61-year-old said he thinks about ‘dying every day,’ as he’s reached the age his father passed away.
He told the publication: “I used to think I’d put out my last cigarette age 107 and just die. But I stopped smoking four years ago.
“When my dad died at 61, I thought, ‘That’s a pretty good innings’. Now I’m 61, if I died, I’d be furious, I’m nowhere near finished.”
He added: “So, yes, I think about dying every day. There’s your headline. In 40 years, I shall be dead and nobody shall remember me.”
Previously, the former Top Gear presenter claimed that his health became more of a concern after he contracted Covid around Christmas last year.
In his column for The Sun, he penned: “My knees give me no confidence when I’m coming down a flight of stairs.
“My back locks solid if I attempt to walk up a hill. My lungs feel as if they’re on fire if I even look at a bicycle, and when I go for a swim it feels as though I have a small car on my back.”
Despite this, Clarkson has insisted he would ‘rather have Covid than leave the EU’.
He made the comment after working on Diddly Squat Farm, as he realised it would lead to issues when trying to diversify his crops.
In an article for The Sunday Times, he remarked: “I have come face to face with a major downside of leaving the EU and on balance, I’d rather have Covid.”
