Jeremy Clarkson: ‘Not getting any sympathy’ Grand Tour host hits out at Daniel Craig

Jeremy Clarkson, 59, is less than impressed with James Bond star Daniel Craig after hearing he has reportedly grown tired of saying: “The name’s Bond. James Bond.” The former Top Gear host spoke out about the actor’s complaint in his column for The Sun and said he hasn’t got “any sympathy” for him.

Jeremy wrote: “Apparently Daniel Craig was fed up with saying: ‘The name’s Bond. James Bond.’

“Well, I’m sorry, my precious, but you’re not getting any sympathy here. If you’ve worked in a poultry farm for 40 years, you can say you’re fed up with chickens.”

He continued: “And if you’ve worked on the railways all your adult life, you can say you are looking forward to a retirement without trains. 

“But you, Mr Craig, only said that line FIVE times. Which is hardly taxing, is it?”

The Grand Tour presenter went on to speculate about who would be replacing Daniel in the role.

The film star announced No Time To Die would mark his final appearance in the movie series.

Jeremy made his own suggestion about who should be cast as the British spy and pointed towards former 007 star Roger Moore’s son Geoffrey Moore.

He jokingly said: “There’s talk about who will replace him in the role. And because Bond is so woke and #MeToo these days, we cannot rule out the possibility that the role will be given to Diane Abbott or Janet Street-Porter.

“Some of me hopes he really does die in the new movie, as has been rumoured. But if he doesn’t, might I suggest the part is given to a chap called Geoffrey Moore?”

The TV personality recalled meeting the actor’s son at a party once and explained he was “impressed” by his “charming style”.

He then quipped: “I’m not sure he can act. But that doesn’t matter because neither could his father Roger… and he was the best Bond of them all.”

Elsewhere, Jeremy responded to England’s defeat to South Africa 12-32 in the Rugby World Cup final.

The car enthusiast joked about the latter’s captain Siya Kolisi before saying the opposition had “killed us”.

He shared a rude image with his 2.5 millions fans on Instagram which saw a springbok – a nickname for the SA national rugby team – over the back of an English Bulldog.

Jeremy tweeted earlier in view of his 7.2 million followers: “Go England. But amazed that Khaleesi is playing rugby for South Africa.”

He appeared to be comparing flanker Siya, 28, who led his side to victory and Game Of Thrones character Daenerys Targaryen, also known as Khaleesi, played by Emilia Clarke.

“She will probably field the dragon in the second half. Scary,” Jeremy continued. “And we have May on the wing.”

After the final whistle, he added: “Congratulations to South Africa. You killed us.”

Jeremy previously seemed confident that England would win the tournament and backed the national team when it was revealed they would be facing South Africa.

He wrote: “To all my South African friends. Bring it on.”
