Jeremy Clarkson Net Worth: How rich is Jeremy Clarkson? & How much money is Jeremy Clarkson worth? Time to find out!
Jeremy Clarkson is an English broadcaster, journalist and writer and his current net worth is $80 million.
Born in Doncaster as the son of Shirley Gabrielle Clarkson, a teacher, and Edward Grenville Clarkson, a travelling salesman, Jeremy’s parents ran a business selling tea cosies.
Growing up his parents put Jeremy’s name ahead for private school with no idea if they will have money to pay the fees, until the last moment.
His parents made two Paddington Bear stuffed toys for their two children, which proved so popular that they started selling them through the business.
That’s how they raised the money to put Jeremy through school. He attended Hill House School, Doncaster, and later went to Repton School.
While at Repton School, he experienced extreme bullying, eventually expelled for drinking, smoking and many other things.
There he met Formula One engineer Adrian Newey as well as Top Gear Executive Producer, Andy Wilman.
Until his voice broke, he used to play in a BBC radio Children’s Hour serial adaptation of Anthony Buckeridge’s Jennings novels.
Before becoming famous, he used to work as a local journalist in northern England.
He rose to prominence as a presenter of the original format of Top Gear in 1988. He became known to the public by appearing on British television hosting his own shows or as a guest on other shows.
Today, he is famous for co-hosting the BBC TV show Top Gear with Richard Hammond, and James May, from 2002 to 2015.
He is famous for having humorous tongue-in-cheek writing and rather unconventional presenting style, which has often provoked public reaction.
BBC ended his contract, after he attacked verbally and physically a Top Gear producer over a dispute at a hotel.
Since then, he alongside Hammond and May and producer Andy Wilman stared production company W. Chump & Sons to produce The Grand Tour for Amazon Video.
Apart from his career in television, he also writes weekly columns for The Sunday Times and The Sun.
