Jeremy Clarkson’s girlfriend Lisa Hogan spoke out on The Grand Tour host’s “petrifying” health scare during his new Amazon Prime show Clarkson on the Farm.

The former Top Gear host wrote in his Sunday Times column: “Four days before Christmas, I woke in the night to find my sheets were soggy. And that I had a constant dry cough.”

After his test came back positive, he said: “The doctor was very clear – I’d feel under the weather for between five and 14 days and then I’d either get better or I’d have to go to hospital.”

Jeremy admitted: “It was quite scary.”

Lisa said: “Jeremy getting Covid was petrifying, but it was thankfully a very light dose.

“But yes, everyone thought at the time that if you got it, you’d end up in a hospital, so we were very aware of that.”

Lisa continued: “We were all really careful, no one from the whole crew or anyone on the farm got it.”

Clarkson added how he initially “didn’t feel too bad” however later his breathing became laboured.

COVID-19 can cause mild symptoms in some people with a full recovery in a few days.

However, for some people serious illness may develop at some point prior to or after the formal diagnosis, recover and then get seriously ill for seven to 10 days.

This could be related to immune dysregulation or the cytokine storm.

COVID-19 can affect the upper respiratory tract and the lower respiratory tract causing laboured breathing.

Essentially, shortness of breath or, dyspnoea or breathlessness is “a group of subjective sensations that suggest our respiratory system is not functioning well,” said Dr Subinoy Das, chief medical officer of Tivic Health Inc.

He continued: “Those sensations usually feel like an increased work or effort to breathe, chest tightness, and air hunger or the feeling of not getting enough oxygen.

“When it comes to COVID-19, shortness of breath is thought to be due to the development of pneumonia, an inflammation of the lungs linked to a coronavirus infection.

“In that case, the shortness of breath occurs when oxygen in the lungs doesn’t make its way to the blood as a result of the viral attack.” 

Describing how they tried to manage filming while Clarkson was enduring COVID-19 and said: “We did have one scenario when we were filming with bees where one of the cameramen had the full suit on and the camera was up to his eyes.

“And I had a stick, and I was trying to push forward the bit of his suit because I could see the bees on it.

“The next thing someone was panicking, ‘Two metres, two metres!’ he was yelling at me, I backed off and the cameraman got stung twice on his forehead.”

She added: “Jeremy got stung quite badly on his backside.”
