He has dramatically dropped two stone over the past year.
And Jeremy Clarkson revealed that he was able to shed the pounds by just eating salad, a tip he learnt from the Queen, he told
The Grand Tour host, 59, was candid about his new dieting regime as he admitted he only had ‘salad for lunch and water’ ahead of the interview, while he joked that he found it too ‘unseemly’ to use the gym.
Secret to success: Jeremy Clarkson revealed on Thursday that his 2st weight loss is a result of eating lettuce like the QUEEN as he joked that he’d never use a gym as it would be ‘unseemly’
Discussing whether he would exercise as a way of losing weight, he claimed: ‘No. No, that would be unseemly. The Queen doesn’t go to the gym and she doesn’t run and she’s 93 and she’s all right.
‘Apparently she only has a forkful, she only has a tiny bit, that’s what I’ve heard. She’ll sit down and just have one little bit of mousse and bit of a lettuce leaf.’
In April, Jeremy revealed the secret to his weight loss was heading on a ‘gap year’ with his partner Lisa Hogan, 46, where he claims his diet dramatically changed.

The car expert spent time in Vietnam with his partner where he revealed he enjoyed a ‘better diet’ and cycled everywhere – including to the pub.
Discussing his trip and recent weight loss on The Jonathan Ross show, he said: ‘I went on a gap year! I went on a gap year to Indochina. They just have a better diet out there.
‘Plus I had a bicycle rather than a car. Cycling is not a good thing to do, I’m all broken as a result of it but I did lose a lot of weight. Where I was staying was separated from the small town by a mountain but it was much bigger than Everest.
‘It was only 3 kilometres and I cycled it every day, I said “I can’t have a drink unless I cycle into town” I wanted to get fit.’
Meanwhile, Jeremy, Richard Hammond and James May’s new season of The Grand Tour will focus on a series of extravagant, big-budget specials over the next two years that will take them away from their usual studio environment.
All three have signed a two-year deal with Amazon that is expected to yield as many as four stand alone show a year, with the presenters travelling to far flung parts of the world in scenes not dissimilar to their globe-trotting adventures on Top Gear.
And fans can expect no-holds barred excitement when the specials do eventually air, with Jeremy claiming they have been given a huge budget to rival the Marvel film franchise.
‘We’re proud to say that Prime Video will continue to be the home for Jeremy, Richard and James,’ said Jay Marine, Vice President of Prime Video.
