Jeremy Clarkson revealed he’d be “furious” if he took his last breath at the age of 61, stating very matter of factly he’s “nowhere near finished”. But the TV star admitted the thought of dying pops into his head everyday, regardless.
Now I’m 61, if I died, I’d be furious
In a recent interview, Jezza explained: “I used to think I’d put out my last cigarette age 107 and just die. But I stopped smoking four years ago.
“When my dad died at 61, I thought, ‘That’s a pretty good innings.’
“Now I’m 61, if I died, I’d be furious,” he exclaimed to The Guardian.
“I’m nowhere near finished.”
The Grand Tour star continued with a giggle: “So, yes, I think about dying every day. There’s your headline.
“In 40 years, I shall be dead and nobody shall remember me.”
But we will remember him, of course, for his comedy and the intriguing nature of his work – running Diddly Squat farm and jetting off across the world to push the flashiest – and un-flasiest – cars to the limit.
Jeremy recently opened up on his health woes, following a stint in hospital with pneumonia in 2017 and, last Christmas he feared he would “die alone in a plastic tent” after contracting Covid.
Writing in his column for The Sun, he addressed his many ailments: “My knees give me no confidence when I’m coming down a flight of stairs.
“My back locks solid if I attempt to walk up a hill.
“My lungs feel as if they’re on fire if I even look at a bicycle, and when I go for a swim it feels as though I have a small car on my back.”
The list of problems he’s suffering with might seem like generic deteriorations that occur when individuals get older, but Jeremy seemed like he had lost all hope that things will get any better.
He continued: “Things aren’t going to get any better, because soon there will be lumps and gristle and hip operations that will force me to spend what time I have left in a rocking chair, trying to finish an interesting story in the Reader’s Digest about azaleas.
“It saddens me to think that I have now dived off a boat for the very last time, and been down my last black run.
“I may never see the dawn again, either, unless I have to get up early for another annoying stagger to the loo.”
As a regular reader of The Times’ obituaries section, the star noticed that most of the people who had died were 15 years older than him.
“This means I have 15 years left, and that’s plenty,” he claimed, as he went on to list things he could do to keep him busy.
Describing the bleak outlook for his health, Jeremy remains characteristically funny and brutally blunt.
Responding to the possibility of him trying to write fiction he said: “But what’s the point of starting one now?
“I’ll only get arthritis halfway through and be unable to type.
“And then, when I’m sent on the promotional tour, I’ll stand there like Joe Biden running all my words into one and forgetting everyone’s name.”
