The Grand Tour’s Jeremy Clarkson engaged in a lively pub quiz to help cure fans’ lockdown boredom. But while putting their general knowledge to the ultimate test, Jezza was quizzed about something close to his heart.
Hosted by DriveTribe, the motoring icon began his second quarantine quiz and featured Rachael Hogg, a journalist at DriveTribe’s sister show FoodTribe, who was tested on her general knowledge skills.
The show that was broadcast live on YouTube, involved five rounds with five questions in each, covering general knowledge, logos, history, true or false and sports.
But as Rachel made her way through the questions quizmaster Jeremy hurled at her, she had one of her own.
“Where is the farm show we need it while we’re all indoors?” she asked.

Jeremy chuckled and revealed that his new show has been put on hold while all the uncertainty surrounding coronavirus settles.
“Yes, unfortunately a farming year is a year so we started in September and we’ll finish, obviously in September when the harvest is in – if it’s in,” he said.
“As has been pointed out for me, we couldn’t have picked a worse year to start farming.
“We had the wettest planting season on record, I mean the wettest not just slightly but by miles on record and just as soon as the rain stopped, everybody was told to go home and stay indoors.
“Of course to be a farmer you have to be an agronomist, a businessman, a politician, an accountant, a vet, and a mechanic. And I’m… none of those things. I don’t even know what agronomist means,” he joked.
But fans ware desperate to see the self-confessed “inept townie” adjust to life in the fields, and throughout the year-long filming Jeremy has been sharing little teasers of what’s to come.
In August, the former Top Gear host made a surprise appearance at the Shearwell Thame Summer Sheep Fair in Oxfordshire, where he traded in horsepower for something else… he was spotted purchasing his very first sheep.
After a successful bid of £146 per animal for the farmyard staples, it can only be assumed that his new friends will feature in the upcoming show.
