It is not known whether Jeremy took the test as he was showing symptoms of the coronavirus, was in contact with someone who had contracted the disease or simply taking one in line with health and safety guidelines on TV sets. MailOnline have contacted Jeremy Clarkson’s rep for comment.

Although the TV star was clearly delighted with his negative test, many of his followers couldn’t help but see some humour in the post and likened his COVID-19 test to a pregnancy test.
Commenting in their droves, a number of his fans jokingly asked Jeremy if he was expecting.
Presenter Julia Bradbury cheekily wrote: ‘You’re pregnant?!
‘Congrats, is it a boy or a girl?,’ another penned. ‘So you’re not pregnant’ (sic).
A fourth wrote: ‘Are you pregnant Jeremy?’
Poking fun: Friends and fans couldn’t help but joke about his post and teasingly asked if he was pregnant
Fact: Another follower clarified his negative COVID-19 test result
While another follower explained the TV presenter’s negative test result for any unsure fans: ‘In case someone doesn’t know… the C is the Control section.
‘If there isn’t a line there, the test kit is faulty. As Jeremy didn’t have a line on the T (test) section, he is Covid negative.’
Yesterday, Jeremy along with his The Grand Tour co-presenters James May and Richard Hammond released their special A Massive Hunt early.
The journalist, presenter, 57, and co-host, 50, appeared in a special video on Thursday which saw them unveil the episode on Amazon Prime Video.
Standing in front of bedazzled red buttons, which Richard joked meant the film crew wanted them to do ‘k**b gags’, they discussed the show’s return.
The special sees the trio go on the hunt for pirate gold in the islands of Madagascar and Réunion as they face the toughest road in the world in their enhanced vehicles.
Out now! The Grand Tour’s Jeremy, James May and Richard Hammond released the special A Massive Hunt EARLY after being bombarded by questions about when it would be out
In November, Jeremy revealed that he and his co-hosts ended up swimming in shark-infested waters after Richard attempted to speak French during their time in Réunion.
Speaking about the Hammond’s lack of language skills, Jeremy explained how after a day swimming they were told a man had been eaten by a shark just the day before.
Jeremy said: ‘When we were in Réunion we had a day of sorting ourselves out and we all met on the beach and Hammond suggested snorkelling.
‘So, he went off to the little hut where you could borrow the flippers and snorkels and he came back and he said, “My French is really coming along, I’ve just had a long conversation with the man in the hut in French.”

What a story: In November, Jeremy revealed that he and his co-hosts ended up swimming in shark-infested waters after Richard attempted to speak French during their time in Réunion
‘We then went swimming and snorkelling and when we got back, we were told that the day before, a man had been eaten by a shark. Exactly in that spot, off that same beach, inside the reef where we were snorkelling.
‘So, this French man was clearly saying, “Don’t go swimming” and Hammond was saying “I like to go snorkelling on Wednesdays.”‘
Jeremy continued: ‘Half of the world’s shark attacks are off Réunion and we went swimming there like idiots.
‘Everyone on the beach was staring at us like, “What on earth are they doing…?’” And this was all because Richard Hammond thinks he can speak French.’
