Outspoken TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson has revealed he saved a group of French and German tourists at sea in Majorca, Spain
Jeremy Clarkson saved a group of French and German tourists at sea in Majorca, Spain.
The former 'Top Gear' presenter diverted his yacht to save the four-strong group who has been diverted off course by a strong wind and he subsequently went to the pub to celebrate his efforts.
Jeremy explained to The Sun newspaper: "They were all in their twenties and a mile out to sea. You'll never paddle back from there."
Jeremy also documented his heroics on Twitter.
The controversial TV presenter said: "I just saved the lives of two Germans.
"Now I have rescued two French people. I apologised for Brexit."
He jokingly added that the incident proved his diplomatic credentials.
Jeremy said: "I am a better and more constructive foreign secretary than Boris Johnson."
Since leaving 'Top Gear', Jeremy has accepted a role at Amazon Prime, where he is to present a new motoring show.
His replacement on the BBC programme, Chris Evans, has already resigned from the show after just one series in which ratings plummeted.
Chris tweeted: "Stepping down from 'Top Gear'. Gave it my best shot but sometimes that's not enough. The team are beyond brilliant, I wish them all the best. (sic)"
Despite walking away from the car show, Chris said he was determined to remain on good terms with the BBC and continue with his other projects.
He said: "Full steam ahead then with Radio 2, CarFest, Children In Need, 500 Words and whatever else we can dream up in the future. (sic)"
