Jeremy Clarkson, 61, couldn’t help but aim a subtle swipe at his The Grand Tour co-presenter James May, 58, in a recent interview. The pair have been working together since they started out on Top Gear, but fans will know they have always had a teasing dynamic.
Jeremy was talking about how TV has changed when he made a dig at James’ television shows.
The outspoken presenter was referencing how life was easier nowadays.
He said: “When I was younger I used to sit watching the most interminable drivel on television because I couldn’t be bothered to get out of the chair and change channels.
“Now, of course, thanks to the remote control I don’t have to.
“As soon as James May says ‘Hello and welcome to?’ I just press the button and, kerpow, he’s gone.”
While James has been a part of the presenting trio with Richard Hammond and Jeremy for more than a decade, he has ventured into a few solo projects.
Some of the notable ones have included James May on the Moon, James May’s Toy Stories and James May: Our Man in Japan.
He also fronted his own cooking show on Amazon Prime Video as well last year called James May: Oh Cook!
However, it appears Jeremy, who is fronting his own solo show called Clarkson’s Farm, is not a great fan.
This isn’t the only time in recent weeks the petrol head turned farmer has been calling out his co-presenter.
In a teaser for his show, which was shared on Instagram, he joked he was “feeling sick” thinking of James.
He said: “Right, I’ve had an email inviting me to the Farmer of the Year Award. Why would I not do that?”
The broadcaster then goes through his application as he details his experiences on the farm.
At the end of the teaser, he then rehearses his speech, saying he’s “proud, humbled, honoured, touched – not in a bad way.”
He continued: “I used to be able to cry to order, now I can’t.
“Wait, wait, James May’s face. No, it’s making me sick.”
Elsewhere Jeremy has been opening up about being told off by “newspapers and bosses” behind the scenes.
Speaking on Sky News’ Backstage podcast, he admitted: “I get shouted at all the time, I’m constantly being shouted at by newspapers and bosses, I’m always being shouted at.”
He explained how this is one of the reasons why it’s usual to see him “shouting” at people on screen.
Jeremy added: “But in real life, you get shouted out by people who know what they’re doing – I didn’t know what I was doing.”
“I thought I know best, and then, of course, you realise you don’t know best, you must listen.”
