Jeremy Clarkson almost lost his thumb in horror accident – but it wasn’t while farming

Jeremy Clarkson almost lost his thumb in horror accident – but it wasn’t while farming

JEREMY Clarkson has revealed he suffered a nasty accident while filming the second series of his hit Amazon Prime show Clarkson’s Farm.

The star nearly lost his thumb in a horrific accident – but it didn’t involve farming.

Jeremy revealed he had the mishap while chopping potatoes when he tried to make homemade crisps.

He said: “I cut half of my thumb off, but it’s all been sewn back on again now.

“It’s interesting that the only proper injury I’ve sustained in farming – a long-lasting one – was actually from cooking, rather than farming.

“Which just goes to show: Gordon Ramsay’s job is more dangerous than mine.”

The second series promises to follow another year of life on Diddly Squat Farm with Jeremy attempting to run a successful farm with next to no knowledge.

All the regular characters will be making a return including the long-suffering farm hand and tractor driver, Kaleb, wise Gerald, realist advisor ‘Cheerful’ Charlie and Jeremy’s patient partner and shop keeper Lisa.

The agriculture adventures on season 2 will see Jeremy battle with the local council in his attempt to open a restaurant alongside the usual ups and downs of farm life.

Talking about the effect the show has had on the farm, Jeremy revealed: “It’s been an extraordinary thing, not just in the UK, but everywhere.

“The farm is visited now by Americans, South Africans, Germans, Finns, Dutch – everyone all over the world. They’ve gone, ‘Wow, it’s amazing where our food comes from’.”

Also in the series, Jeremy’s new herd of cows are settling in.

Although they’re less crazy than last year’s sheep, they possess a similar disrespect for fencing, and are soon going places they shouldn’t go, including a neighbour’s farm.

Meanwhile, the range of produce for the restaurant-to-be is still growing, as Jeremy and Lisa choose varieties of chillies they can grow and turn into chilli sauce.

But it seems the ones they’ve chosen are too volcanically hot when they incapacitate a chef and make members of the public weep.

All eight episodes of Clarkson’s Farm Series 2 will be available to watch on 10th February on Prime Video.
