Jeremy Clarkson’s ex Phillipa Sage says he would ‘lose his patience’ with co-stars James May and Richard Hammond as she details her ‘bizarre job’ acting as their PA for 12 years

Jeremy Clarkson’s ex Phillipa Sage has said the former Top Gear host would ‘lose his patience’ with co-stars James May and Richard Hammond as she detailed her ‘bizarre job’ working alongside the trio. 

Phillipa – who was accused of having an affair with the broadcaster in 2011 while he was married to his second wife Frances Cain – worked as their PA for over 12 years. 

She has given a behind-the-scenes insight into her time alongside the car enthusiasts during their The Grand Tour series for Amazon in her new book The Wonderful World of Jeremy Clarkson – My Life on the Road with Jeremy.

As serialised in The Sun, Phillipa spoke of their time filming in Jordan and recalled: ‘There was little acting required when it came to the men enjoying being soldiers for the day and pretending to shoot each other.

‘Jeremy would lose his patience with James and Richard would get fed up with being ridiculed for being short. James would be slow and stubborn. Situation normal.

‘I was asked by one of the producers to see if I could get Jeremy to be a bit more tolerant of James. That was one of the ridiculous and tricky challenges I faced in my bizarre job.’

Phillipa admitted that Jeremy was a ‘perfectionist’ on set and pushed himself ‘to the limit’ but also added that there was a lot of ‘laughter.’

The trio chatted as they appeared to film for the show, which first premiered in 2016.

It has featured four seasons as well numerous specials before production on a fifth season was delayed in 2021 due to COVID. 

Jeremy took to Instagram to mark their reunion as he shared a snap of the three posing in front of a lavish private jet.

With long wait times at many UK airports he cheekily wrote: ‘What airport chaos?’.
