Jeremy Clarkson ‘alarmed’ by BBC weather update: 'Disaster-movie terrors coming our way'


Jeremy Clarkson, 60, has revealed he was left feeling concerned when a BBC weather report forecasted “extreme heat”, alongside a frightening red graphic across the map, last Wednesday. The former Top Gear presenter admitted he had to put his phone down to “get a handle on what disaster-movie terrors were coming our way” due to the caption and an image of a “blood red cloud over the whole of Europe”.

However, he then realised the weather wouldn’t be as “extreme” as suggested by the broadcaster, but that it would be unseasonably warm for February.

Speaking out on his initial worries, The Grand Tour host said: “The BBC’s early evening weather bulletin on Wednesday showed a menacing, blood red cloud over the whole of Europe. Along with a caption saying, ‘Extreme Heat’.

“Naturally, I was alarmed by this and put down my phone for a moment so I could get a handle on what disaster-movie terrors were coming our way.

“It turned out that, over the next few days, we could expect to see clear skies and temperatures of around 12 degrees. Which didn’t sound very ‘extreme’ to me.

He completed his look with a blue jacket and oversized sunglasses.
