Back in the days Jeremy Clarkson presented Top Gear he was the BBC’s highest paid star.
Jeremy was paid a whopping £1 million per series for his role on the popular show.
However, he was fired, and now is one Amazon’s The Grand Tour and ITV’s Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
He signed a reported £160 million deal to appear on The Grand Tour with Amazon Prime.
Jeremy is also said to be due a £29 million surplus his production company has been left with.
He told The Times earlier this month of the BBC’s huge salaries: “You get that for your entire life being taken over.
So when you look at all those BBC salaries that are published, you think, ‘You get that for an hour’s work.
“No, you don’t. You get that for your entire life being taken over by, ‘Selfie! Selfie! Photo! Photo! Photo!’ Somebody has to pay for that.
“And I’m afraid, in this case, it’s Tampax and Asda.”
Jeremy Clarkson net worth
Given this history of huge salaries, it is hardly surprising the presenter is worth enough.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Jeremy Clarkson is worth £46 million.
Jeremy Clarkson’s weight loss has also impressed a legion of fans.
How did the presenter, who is a drinker and former smoker, shed the fat?
Jeremy claims cycling for three kilometres a day helped him shed weight and get into shape.
He told the ITV Jonathan Ross show: “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.
“Where I was staying was separated from the small town by a mountain.
“It was only three kilometres and I cycled every day.
“I said, ‘I can’t have a drink unless I cycle into town.’ I wanted to get fit.”
