To address complaints about his Diddly Squat farm store, Jeremy Clarkson attended a town hall meeting with locals.
The Grand Tour host was seen arriving to Chadlington Memorial Hall for the meeting, which began at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
The purpose of the meeting was to address traffic concerns raised by his store, which can be seen on his popular TV program Clarkson’s Farm.
Jeremy, 61, claimed he was there to lay the locals’ rumors to rest by informing them what was going on.
‘I’m simply here to listen,’ he replied, according to Sky News.
‘Gossip spreads in villages, and they have no idea what we’re up to, so I figured the best thing I could do is come down and say, ‘This is what we’re up to,’ and then it won’t be gossip any longer.”
‘As there seems to be some discussion in the village over what’s going on at Diddly Squat, Jeremy Clarkson will be in the Memorial Hall to explain his ideas and to take any questions you may have,’ the poster said.
