Jeremy Clarkson has suffered the unfortunate consequence of being a beekeeper after getting stung on the bum by a bee.
The Grand Tour star, who is currently tending to 250,000 bees on his Diddly Squat Farm in the Cotswolds, was left with a right pain in the backside after one of the creatures got into his protective suit.
‘The bee got in the bottom, crawled up the Wellington, up the jeans trouser until it got between there and my T-shirt where it found an interesting crack, down it went and then stung me,’ he told The Sun.
‘When you’re in a bee suit you can’t get the bee out. I knew it was there dying in my underpants.
‘I just thought, “God this honey better sell”. It does taste nice.’
Jeremy has taken on this new hobby as part of a new Amazon Prime series called I Bought A Farm – where he trades in his usual city lifestyle for country life, creating the farm from scratch.
The series, which is due to arrive in 2021, has been dogged with issues since the start – mainly due to the coronavirus pandemic halting production for six months, right as he got into the swing of things.
But Jeremy has persevered with the project, tending to lambs, growing vegetables and opening The Squat Shop produce store on the site.
He’s even started selling candles that apparently ‘smell like his b*****ks’ in a bid to take over Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop vagina candle… proving there really is a market for everything.
Jeremy is now also back filming The Grand Tour with Richard Hammond and James May, who have also been busy with their own solo shows over the course of 2020.
The highly anticipated Grand Tour Madagascar special is also currently being finished, with a release date not yet confirmed.
I Bought A Farm is released next year on Amazon Prime Video.
