The Grand Tour star Jeremy Clarkson said he was a regular reader of The Times’ obituaries section and noticed most of the people who had died were 15 years older than him. “This means I have 15 years left, and that’s plenty,” he claimed, as he went on to list things he could do to keep him busy.

The 61-year-old jokingly suggested becoming a kickboxing champion or taking up a new sport such as waterskiing, but acknowledged it wouldn’t be possible due to some of his body parts not working as well anymore.

“My knees give me no confidence when I’m coming down a flight of stairs,” he spilled.

“My back locks solid if I attempt to walk up a hill. My lungs feel as if they’re on fire if I even look at a bicycle, and when I go for a swim it feels as though I have a small car on my back.”

The father-of-three added in his column with The Times: “It saddens me to think that I have now dived off a boat for the very last time, and been down my last black run.

“I may never see the dawn again, either, unless I have to get up early for another annoying stagger to the loo.”

Jeremy added he doesn’t believe things will get any better for him as he suggested a hip operation could be on the cards.

Despite this, the presenter said he had no plans to give up his career and had an idea to write a “work of fiction”.

“But what’s the point of starting one now? I’ll only get arthritis halfway through and be unable to type,” he doubtfully added.

He went on to say he also had ambitions to travel to the likes of Zimbabwe, but said long-haul flights no longer appealed to him.

“I’ll just go to Cornwall instead,” he added.

Jeremy has however revealed that he will be opening his own restaurant.

The car enthusiast issued a plea to readers asking them how he could turn his ingredients into mouth-watering meals for customers.

“I see a kitchen full of pies and gravy and wipe-down chairs, with Bad Company playing,” he joked.

It’s not the first time the ex Top Gear star has stepped out of his comfort zone.

Last year, Jeremy launched his own Amazon series I Bought The Farm, much to the delight of fans.

On the show, he is seen getting to grips with running his own farm, which lies between Chipping Norton and Chadlington in Oxfordshire.

Speaking of his journey, he told Express.co.uk: “I honestly thought that farming was… you put seeds in the ground, weather happens and then you grow food.

“And then, you go on a skiing holiday and moan about how awful the weather has been and that’s just not true, none of that.

“It’s incredibly complicated, every single thing about farming is complicated and made more complicated by Government interference.

“The amount of things you can’t do, it beggars belief.”

Following popular demand, his show has been recommissioned for a second series.
