Jeremy Clarkson has tested positive for Covid-19. As per his latest Instagram post captioned “B*****ks”, where Clarkson shows a positive rapid test result, indicating that he would have to isolate himself again.
This is the second time that he has tested positive for Covid-19. In 2020 just before Christmas, Clarkson had to isolate himself from his girlfriend Lisa Hogan and others from the celebrations after being infected.
We all know the kind of toll the virus can have on our bodies. The isolation and recovery usually take a long time before one can get back to routine life. Everything else pauses in life when one gets infected with Covid-19.
With Clarkson catching the virus again, we think this could have an effect on the launch of Clarkson’s Farm 2 which is to launch at some point in 2022. Jeremy revealed about a month ago how his entire crew got Covid-19. With him unwell now, the delay could multiply.
Jeremy’s health has also been a matter of concern as a result of his age and fitness levels. Talking about his Covid-19 infection in 2020, he revealed that the experience was “quite scary”.
He said in his Sunday Times Column: “Because I am 60 and fat, and because I’ve smoked half a million cigarettes and had double pneumonia, I’d probably die, on my own, in a lonely plastic tent.”
The episode might have made quite an impact on Jeremy. He recently revealed in his column about his fear of death which made us realise how fragile life really is. Taking matters into his own hands, he recently bought a home gym and hired a trainer. But with Covid, that will be kept aside for some time.
Jeremy’s rate of recovery would have a direct impact on the release date of Clarkson’s Farm. If he gets well sooner, there’s nothing like it. As of now, there aren’t any reports of his Girlfriend Lisa contracting the virus because that too, could make a difference.
There are high chances that both Jeremy and Lisa could’ve recently come in direct contact with people they work with- possibly the crew, Kaleb, and the Diddly Squat Farm Shop crew. That also raises concerns about Diddly Squat Farm Shop which reopened about a month ago. Will that continue operating or will that be shut temporarily?
Jeremy and Lisa Hogan also started two new businesses to accompany his farming career. Named ‘Curdle Hill Juice’ and ‘Curdle Hill Wholesale’, it’s unknown as to what these businesses are selling, but we assume they’re related to the produce from the farm. Will they be affected too?
We hope not. And we sincerely wish for the best.
