Jeremy Clarkson was furious during an epic prank by Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly for Saturday Night Takeaway.
The hosts targeted Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? and former Top Gear host, in their first Undercover movie.
Viewers were left in a frenzy, as the presenter dumped his car in the trash and caught him in awkward scenes – which he didn’t realize was a stitch.
Meanwhile, Jeremy asked one protester “how fast can you run” as he handcuffed himself to his car, before cursing fake police officers during a staged arrest.
I TV teased the hilarious moment before the show in an online clip, and it’s easy to say it will be well viewed.
In the clip, Jeremy, 61, can be seen arriving at his ranch as ‘protesters’ chant: “Stop working hard, keep your land” while holding signs.
“He didn’t look very impressed,” Ant said, disguised as a protester.
Another woman said to Jeremy: “Hi, my name is Laura, I’m one of …” before Jeremy cut her off.
The Top Gear star said curtly: “The point about soil is that you can’t hurt it.”
Dec, disguised in a wig, taunted the star by saying, “Maybe you should phone a friend” over a megaphone.
From a secret room, Ant tells another actor to handcuff himself to Jeremy’s car.
Throughout the entire short clip, Jeremy faints as he silently watches the frenzy unfold.
As the joke escalates, with a pile of dirt falling on top of Jeremy’s car, he infuriates him.
Things only got worse when the ‘police’ arrested Jeremy for breaking the peace, and cursed them when he lost his patience.
He started cursing the officers more, as Ant and Deck in disguise began taunting him, before they were “under house arrest”.
When Ant and Dec finally showed up, Jeremy was speechless and couldn’t believe what had happened – before he started laughing along with everyone else.
Speaking back in the studio, Jeremy confessed it wasn’t his first time facing protesters so he wasn’t suspicious.
He joked that the only thing that made him suspect something was up was his teammate Lisa getting up early that day.
Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway is back with a new series on Saturday night, with some big changes to the previous series.
The the live audience was welcomed back with open arms, after the boys had to leave the crowd last year to stay away from society, due to Coronavirus pandemic.
But between concerns that Dancing On Ice may be broadcast on Sunday due to storm EuniceAnt and Dec certainly fear the same for their own series.
