Jeremy Clarkson, who recently faced a backlash for saying Greta Thunberg ‘needs a smacked bottom,’ has claimed that he nearly lost his leg in an ‘accident’ at Diddly Squat Farm

Appearing on The Jonathon Ross Show, the 61-year-old said that the incident meant that he couldn’t ‘walk properly for a week’.

He explained: “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.”

Elsewhere in the chat, the TV presenter opened up about making Clarkson’s Farm for Amazon Prime.

Recalling how the programme came about, he said: “It was an accident. I was contractually obliged – I had to make a programme on my own. I thought, ‘I’m slightly bored of Terminal 5. I’ll film at home on the farm’.

“I thought what a lovely programme it would be to try and learn to be a farmer. I genuinely love it out there.”

Clarkson then praised one of the show’s stars, Kaleb Cooper, who he dubbed ‘entrepreneurial’.

He said: “The [farm] shop is a huge success and consequently we’ve had to mow a field near it so people can park there and it’s really a mud bath. Kaleb now goes up and charges people £15 to tow their cars out.”
