The Clarkson’s Farm host said he would be overcome with drowsiness when symptoms of hay fever would strike.

Jeremy Clarkson revealed that to make matters worse was being out in is Oxfordshire Farm would aggravate the condition.

Writing in his latest column for The Sun, he began: “It’s weird. We are all sitting around wondering when this relentless cold snap will end and summer can finally get cracking.

“But the fact is that, for 20 per cent of the population, summer is an out-of-focus, tear-filled sneeze-fest thanks to hay fever.”

He added: “I used to suffer quite badly.”

The 63-year-old has now shared a top tip he received from a fellow farmer to help calm his hay fever down.

“I had acupuncture which didn’t work at all and took pills which they said would make me drowsy,” he explained.

“Drowsy? I didn’t wake up until September.”

Jeremy concluded: “Last year, though, a gnarled old farmer gave me a tip.

“Have a teaspoonful of honey, made by bees that have pollinated the plants in your area. And you know what? It worked.”

The former Top Gear presenter said the tip was so worthwhile it has helped his colleagues on the set of Clarkson’s Farm.

Hay fever is usually worse between late March and September, especially when it’s warm, humid and windy and this is when the pollen count is at its highest, according to the NHS.

Symptoms can include itchy throat, sneezing, coughing, earache, pain around your temples, and loss of smell just to name a few.

Elsewhere, Jeremy wrote in his recent column for The Sun that Top Gear “has to be saved” after it was rumoured the show could be cancelled.

Fans have hoped the show could potentially see the return of its original iconic trio – Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.

Taking to Twitter, one fan asked Jeremy if there was any chance of him swooping in to save the day.

They wrote: “@JeremyClarkson @RichardHammond @MrJamesMay.

“Now that Top Gear is cancelled, is there a chance you can buy the naming rights and maybe return as a trio??? please.. pretty please?”

Responding to the tweet last week, Jeremy answered: “Er. We never went away. The three of us are still very much at it.”

Currently, Clarkson, Hammond and May work together on their Amazon Prime Video series, The Grand Tour.
