Jeremy Clarkson, 60, endured a spate of his car being vandalised every night in the 1980s. The former Top Gear presenter opened up about his frustrating situation in a recent interview, claiming how it’s “very different” now.

Clarkson is well known for being an expert in all things motoring.

However, fans of the star might be surprised to know that he has struggled with car vandalism in the past.

Speaking in an interview from 2019, the star revealed his woes of his car being broken into.

Motoring publication Drivetribe recently released some unused footage from their chat with Clarkson in a Notting Hill pub.

During the interview, he was asked whether he had ever had his car stolen in the past.

He said: “I lived up there [Notting Hill] in 1982 and every single morning, without fail, my car had been broken into in the night.

“There would be shattered glass and something missing from the dashboard.

“And I got so fed up with it that those ultrasonic alarms had just come out, that poked out of the dashboard like ET’s head.

“They were £200, which was a lot of money then. But I thought: ‘Well it’s worth it because it will stop it happening.’

“So I bought one, came out the following morning, car broken into, they’d stolen the alarm.

“That was Ledbury Road in 1982, very different now.”

Clarkson recently appeared on screens in the latest instalment of The Grand Tour.

The trio have already filmed another special of their popular show in Scotland.

Currently, there’s no word on when this will be released on the platform.

However, Clarkson gave an update in an interview with and other media back in November.

He explained: “Well, we knew we couldn’t go abroad.

“And so we simply looked and went ‘Right, well the Outer Hebrides then.”

However, he added: “Scotland won’t be going out for months.

“We’ve got to edit it which takes three months and it’s another 16 weeks to do the subtitles for different countries in the world.

“It’s a very long process from somebody shouting wrap to people being able to watch it.”
