Jeremy Clarkson has tried to quell the nerves of kids who are receiving their A-level results today.

By sharing a humblebrag to end all humblebrags.

The Grand Tour presenter showcased his sprawling French chateau on Thursday to try and offset the sadness felt by anyone who wasn’t all that impressed with the letters generated by their tests.

With kids feeling like this will set the course for the rest of their lives (trust us, it won’t), including how much money they may bank, the TV stalwart and car enthusiast wanted to prove that wasn’t the case.

What a legend.

Taking to Twitter, the 59-year-old, who has an estimated worth of £30million, shared a snapshot of the pile of bricks he’s renting for the summer in France and we have to say, he’s landed himself a pretty swanky life.


‘A level results a bit rubbish? Don’t worry. I got a C and two Us and I’ve rented this place for the summer,’ he wrote alongside the shot that’s got us feeling the real estate envy hard.

The Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? host isn’t shy about telling you about how he failed his exams. In fact, he makes the same smug point every year.

Last year he added: ‘And I’m sitting here deciding which of my Range Rovers to use today.’

In 2017, it was: ‘If you didn’t get the right A level results, don’t worry. I got a C and 2 Us, and my chef is preparing truffles for breakfast.’

Our personal favourite in 2016 sported: ‘If your A level results are disappointing, don’t worry. I got a C and two Us, and I’m currently on a superyacht in the Med.’

The man made his millions becoming a household name on Top Gear, before landing a deal with Amazon Prime for The Grand Tour alongside comrades Richard Hammond and James May.

Sure his profile essentially provides him a license to print money, but that’s not to say he doesn’t earn that business well and good – putting his life on the line nearly.

Earlier this week he revealed The Grand Tour team came close to death as they filmed season 4 in Vietnam and Cambodia after being struck by a catastrophic monsoon.


Alongside his co-stars Jeremy was rowing a boat in one of the deadliest seas on the planet when extreme weather caused them to abandon filming.

He explained four people had been killed just ‘inches away’ from where they were recording just days before.

The Grand Tour season 4 struck by extreme weather costing Jeremy Clarkson team thousands ‘It’s about the only time health and safety has made the correct decision,’ the only man explained in his column for The Sun.

‘I, of course, was fine, but May had to abandon ship as crew boats were filling with water.’

Good to have you back safe and sound, mate – now you go and enjoy your summer in France. Don’t mind us.
