Jeremy Clarkson details Buckingham Palace hoax after being told he would receive an OBE
Jeremy Clarkson, 62, has poked fun at a hoax that posed as the Department of Media, Culture and Sport and claimed he would receive an OBE from Buckingham Palace.The Top Gear star grew suspicious after receiving an “official-looking email” stating he was set to receive the honour.Jeremy wrote: “There were a couple of things that made me suspicious, though.“Number one: Why on earth would they give me an OBE? And number two: The email said it was for services to sport.“What services to sport? Turning up at Stamford Bridge once in a while.”Jeremy went on to say some “gullible” people might actually take the bait and turn up to Buckingham Palace “in a penguin suit”.“Imagine their little faces when the guard says they’re not on the list,” he added in his column for The Sun.Jeremy had previously said he thought it was unlikely he would ever receive a knighthood due to his past actions.He admitted he was "hardly a model citizen" and thus did not think he would ever get to kneel before Her Majesty at ­Buckingham Palace.In a 2020 interview, the 60-year-old said: “I think you only have to look on Wikipedia and go, ‘No, not this one’.“I’m hardly a model citizen. I just can’t in my wildest dreams imagine anybody’s going to sit there and go, ‘Queen’s Honours, I think Jeremy Clarkson’."I just can’t hear those words being spoken in an oak-panelled room in Whitehall.

‘Wish he hadn’t entered’ Jeremy Clarkson says Eurovision's Sam Ryder will 'get beaten’
Clarksons Farm star Jeremy Clarkson has admitted he wishes the UK’s 2020 Eurovision entry Sam Ryder “hadn’t entered” the competition this year.The former Top Gear host went on to explain how he felt the singer’s talents have been wasted on the competition because he was “always going to get beaten” by the Ukrainian entry for this year.Jeremy, 62, has shared his thoughts on the UK’s chances in the Eurovision Song Contest this year. Britain has a reputation for placing at the bottom of the leaderboard year after year. Sam, 32, is hoping to change our country’s fortunes this year, however, with his positively-received song SPACE MAN. Despite the hype, Jeremy remains unconvinced that this year could spell victory for us Brits.But he did praise Sam for his incredible vocal capabilities in his latest column. “For some time, I’ve been listening in awe to Sam Ryder singing on TikTok,” Jeremy wrote.“He may be a vegetablist and a beardy but he seems like a nice lad and his voice has the power to knock down walls.“Which is why I wish he hadn’t entered this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.” This year, Ukraine is tipped to do well in the competition - a likelihood that can be attributed, at least in part, to Russia’s brutal ongoing invasion of the country. Meanwhile, Russia has been banned from Eurovision, with the European Broadcasting Union making their final ruling on the matter back in February. Reflecting on Sam’s talents, Jeremy continued: “He was always going to get beaten by the Ukrainian entry.“Even if they’d fielded two dogs barking at one another,” he added in his piece for the Sun.The Ukrainian band Kalush Orchestra is competing on behalf of their country this year, with special permission to leave Ukraine in order to

'His was worse!' Jeremy Clarkson aims dig at Lewis Hamilton over F1 loss to George Russell
Jeremy Clarkson, 62, gave his opinion on Lewis Hamilton’s recent disappointing finish in his latest column.Speaking about the Imola Grand Prix in Italy, which took place in April, Jeremy was critical of Lewis' performance.Jeremy said Lewis “qualified badly”, adding that he “spent most of the race at the back of the field, trying and failing to get past someone who was driving what was basically a Morris Marina”.The car enthusiast revealed that, while Lewis’ boss and some commentators had blamed his car for his performance, Jeremy pointed out that his younger Mercedes team-mate George Russell, “soundly” beat him by coming in at fourth position.The Clarkson's Farm presenter claimed that George’s car was “worse” than Lewis’ had been, and was not equally as problematic, as had been previously suggested.The former Top Gear host explained that the Mercedes team “forgot” to change the set-up of George’s car.Damon Hill, the 1996 Formula One World Champion, had a different viewpoint and recently said Lewis had not been “humiliated” by George, although Lewis has been falling behind his team-mate this season.Damon described Lewis as being “a little unlucky”.The multiple champion only managed a 13th place-finish at Imola.Jeremy hasn’t been reserving his anger just for Lewis lately, as he has also been making comments aimed at Amal Clooney in the same column for The Sun.The star of Amazon Prime Video show Clarkson’s Farm said he had assumed the barrister to be a “drippy human rights loony”.He had also thought of her as only having a platform “to get her lefty messages across” because she is married to George Clooney.Despite these assumptions, he did say Amal has “the most beautiful voice I’ve ever heard” when he found himself
