The 60-year-old Grand Tour host Jeremy Clarkson owned up against Newspapers for over-exaggerating his COVID-19 experience.

Mr Clarkson contracted COVID-19 four days before Christmas after waking up with a constant dry cough.

When test results for the virus returned as positive, Jeremy told The Times his doctor ‘was very clear’ that he would feel under the weather between five and fourteen days because he is 60, smoked half a million cigarettes and had double pneumonia.

After being forced to self-isolate with his wife and children in a small cottage in Christendom, he added that local Newspapers were over-exaggerating his experience having the virus.

He said to the times, “With every illness, I’ve had, there has always been a sense that medicine and time would eventually ride to the rescue, but with Covid-19 you have to lie there, on your own, knowing that medicine is not on its way and that time is your worst enemy.”

Mr Clarkson did not feel ‘too bad’ after he fought the virus saying he laid on his bed reading a book until it went away in a tweet posted to Twitter.

Dear the newspapers. I didn’t ‘battle’ Covid. I lay on my bed reading a book till it went away,” he wrote.
