An interview with Jeremy Clarkson

Jeremy Clarkson talk about all his favourite topics: books, love and aspirations. We even asked him the last time he cried, but surprisingly, the answer wasn't quite what we were looking for

How would you like to be remembered?

I won't be remembered.

I don't.

Jeremy Clarkson Q&A

What makes you angry?

Piers Morgan mostly.

Have you ever had any other jobs apart from writing?

I was a milkman once, for a day. And then I sold bears.

A f****** temper s*** head.

What are you proudest of?

Nothing yet.

Where do you write?

At home.

Where's your favourite city?

Saigon, Rome, Hong Kong, Biarritz, Milan and San Francisco are all great. But the winner is London, by an enormous margin.

My name is Jeremy. That makes me a man, and that means I don't snivel.
