Jeremy Clarkson jokes about ‘desperate times’ as he cracks open wine in car

Jeremy Clarkson cracked open a bottle of wine in his Range Rover, as he joked about ‘desperate times’.

Honestly, fair play.

The Grand Tour star is currently in lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic, holing up in his swanky Cotswolds home.

But it seems things may have become too much, as he took to Instagram to share a snap of an open bottle of rose, nestled in the drink holder of his swanky car, beside a pink plastic cup,

Alongside the upload, the 60-year-old simply wrote: ‘Desperate times,’ offering no other explanation.

However there is no suggestion Jeremy was drink-driving.

And fans were loving the cheeky photo, suggesting that he was ‘wasting time’ with the cup, and should just start necking the wine from the bottle.

Desperate times

A post shared by Jeremy Clarkson (@jeremyclarkson1) on

The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire host recently opened up about how he was coping during quarantine, revealing he was really ‘enjoying’ having the time to himself.

In fact, he admitted that he was ‘scared’ for things to go back to normal once lockdown eventually ends.

Penning a column in the Sun, he said: ’I haven’t had a shave for a week. I’m wearing a shirt that makes me look like Winnie The Pooh. I’m living on a diet of what’s growing in my vegetable garden, which at this time of year is nothing, and McVitie’s dark chocolate biscuits.

‘Ordinarily I go to a lot of parties, but I’m starting to realise that getting dressed up and driving a razor round my face and sorting a taxi is an enormous amount of effort.

‘And for what? So I can spend a few hours talking to people I don’t know or like.’ 

Jeremy is arguably one of the most recognisable people on TV – thanks to stints on Top Gear and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, as well as his Amazon Prime exploits with pals Richard Hammond and James May. 

But he’s ‘not sure’ that he wants to return to all the glitz, glamour and parties just yet. 

‘I’m actually scared, then, of what will happen when normal service is resumed,’ he added. ‘Because I’ll be expected to pick up where I left off. And I’m not sure I want that.’ 

Fair enough…
