Jeremy Clarkson, 61, confesses he dreads dying as ‘everyone he knows dies at 61’

Presenter Jeremy Clarkson has found himself in a state of worry, as he fears he may pass away soon.

Jeremy, who turned 61 in April, believes there may be an ongoing trend with people in his life once they hit that age.

Due to the fact that many of his friends and family passed away at the age of 61, the former Top Gear presenter admits that he has started to think heavily about mortality.

Speaking openly to The Mirror, Jeremy, 61, said: "Everyone I know dies at 61.

"All my friends did, my dad did, that’s when you go….If I make it to 62, I’ll be here forever.

"When dad died, I thought of him as an old man, but I don’t feel old."

He added: "When I see myself on screen I think, 'Who’s that?' I always expect a 19-year-old to be looking back at me.

"But old people don’t look like we think they should."

The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? presenter survived Covid-19 during Christmas and spent the majority of his time recovering from the illness watching James Bond movies in bed while drinking wine.

However, Jeremy admitted to initially feeling worried when he contracted the bug last year, due to being a heavy smoker and "overweight".

He's also had double pneumonia in the past – which led him to admit that he considers himself to be the "poster boy for bad Covid".

Jeremy, who has presented the popular quiz show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire since May 2018, has previously recalled his frustration when contestants, who he considers to be not so bright, end up winning huge amounts of money.

Talking openly to Saga magazine, Jeremy explained: "I know how desperate some really bright people are to get on the show, but then you get some halfwit who has just got quick fingers.

"Anyone can get to £8,000, then you phone a friend and get £16,000, you phone another friend and suddenly they’re going away with a very large sum of money, having shown that they know nothing at all."
