Jeremy Clarkson, 59, appeared to be unimpressed when he was branded a “joke” by an aggrieved Twitter user yesterday. The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? host was tweeted by a viewer who slated his presenting skills. They also suggested the TV personality was the “worst example of pale privilege”. The Twitter user fumed: “@JeremyClarkson you are a joke, worst example of pale privilege I ever saw.
“You aren’t even an entertaining presenter, just roll over already.”
In spite of the vicious remark, Jeremy opted to respond with a witty retort on the social media platform.
The Grand Tour favourite simply replied in view of his 7.2 million followers: “Anything else?”
Fans took to the comments section of the exchange between Jeremy and the Twitter user to share their thoughts.
One person sarcastically wrote back: “Well she seems nice.”
Another added: “Wash your mouth out… Jezza is very entertaining!!”
Citing Queen Elizabeth II as the reason behind his avoidance of working out, Jeremy told The Sun: “No. No, that would be unseemly.
“The Queen doesn’t go to the gym and she doesn’t run and she’s 93 and she’s all right.”
Explaining his suggestion, Jeremy added: “Apparently she only has a forkful, she only has a tiny bit, that’s what I’ve heard.
“She’ll sit down and just have one little bit of mousse and bit of a lettuce leaf.”
Revealing his lunch of choice to the publication, Jeremy continued: “I had salad for lunch and water — well, I had water because you lot were coming.
“But I had a salad nicoise and a glass of water. I lost two stone last year.”
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
