Carol Vorderman, formerly of Countdown, has opened up about her history with The Grand Tour’s Jeremy Clarkson in a recent tweet. She writes about her memories of the duo as she reminds people of a shocking moment in both their careers.
She explains how both her and Clarkson worked together in 1993, but this wasn’t standard TV work. No, their career paths briefly wandered into the music industry as they found themselves starring in a music video alongside Mr Blobby, a UK TV character.
and I have in common? We’re both on the #MrBlobby Christmas 1993 Number One VIDEO….
Jezza is right at the start and I’m at 1:48 in (just incase you can’t bear to watch it all)

I had erased that video and song from my memory for good reason it looks like

If you want to hear it for yourself, we’ve embedded the monstrosity below.
This news comes just after Jeremy Clarkson told Prine Harry to “get lost” in a recent column with The Sun.
“If I’d rung Buckingham Palace last weekend to ask if Mrs Queen would lay a wreath at the Cenotaph on my behalf, I’m fairly sure they’d have politely told me to get lost,” he wrote.
“Because I’m not a member of the Royal Family. So why did Harry Markle think that someone should lay a wreath on his behalf?
“Because he’s not a member of the Royal Family either,” he stated.
