When you’re under the lights of a studio, it gets quite hot. Plus, having the pressure of millions of eyes all looking at you at once can be daunting and anxiety inducing.
I’m sure you’ve had that feeling where you realise you’ve done something wrong, and a hot, prickling sensation runs up your back. Take that, whack some high intensity lights on you, then imagine one million people looking at you. That’s the pressure that Jeremy Clarkson is under every time he goes on the TV. But of course, someone had to bring up his face looking a tad shiny during an episode of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
A viewer tweeted: “Why does @JeremyClarkson look like he is profusely sweating??”
There’s a very simple answer to this, which Clarkson was keen to reply with.
“Because I am. Could that be it?” Clarkson replies. Let’s face it, we’re all imagining Jeremy’s smug face here, aren’t we?
Because I am? Could that be it?

The show, despite Clarkson’s level of sweating or not, has been a hit with viewers who are loving the addition of Clarkson’s well known comedic side to the quiz show. And while Clarkson has proven that he’s not so good at the whole general knowledge bit, he’s reportedly loving it so far.
