Jeremy Clarkson has been left redfaced after recently announcing he has had to stop harvesting due to the heatwave.

The Grand Tour host tweeted on August 11: “F***etty f***. Had to stop harvesting because of, and I’m not making this up, the fire risk.”

However, fans are not showing him much sympathy after his previous tweets mocked last month’s heatwave.

One person replied: “That will be the climate change thing, that thing that back in 2006 you said you weren’t scared off.”

Someone else wrote: “So the car guy who laughed at climate scientists is now a farmer who can’t harvest his crops due to <checks notes> heat waves caused by climate change. Life comes at you fast.”

Last month, Clarkson wrote: “It’s very hot in the south of France but so far as I know, there’s no DefCon 8 level 3 killer death heatwave warning in place,” and a lot of people made sure to remind him of this remark.

One user responded: “Aged like fine wine… that’s alright, have a beer.”

The Grand Tour host runs a farm in Chipping Norton, which he has been documenting in the hit Amazon Prime Series Clarkson’s Farm.

He recently announced that Series 2 has finished filming and they have started the editing process.

So hopefully it won’t be too long until we see Clarkson, his girlfriend Lisa, and fan favourites Kaleb Cooper, and Gerald Cooper back on our screens.

The farm already has a shop, but the presenter recently opened a restaurant on his land.

Even though his initial proposal for an eatery got denied, he publicly revealed he found a ‘loophole’ to open one up on his farm.

However, his announcement has backfired as now the restaurant is under investigation by the local council.
