Jeremy Clarkson left bloodied by 'most dangerous' stunt for new Amazon show

Jeremy Clarkson has revealed the results of his "most dangerous stunt" ever: a bloodied nose and blackened face.

The former Top Gear host is currently filming his new Amazon Prime motoring show.

Warning fans on Thursday night, he wrote: "Tomorrow morning, I'm doing the most dangerous stunt I've ever attempted. This may well be a goodbye."

Clarkson, 55, clearly was not joking, as he shared a photograph with his six million Twitter followers on Friday evening showing blood dripping from his nose.

He wrote: "I survived the day. Just."

In response to one fan, who accused him of using make-up to create the effect, he wrote: "You're going to feel silly when you see the show. It so isn't make-up."

The stunt appears to have taken place in Jordan.

Clarkson joked: "My first time in A man. It hurt, but I liked it," before clarifying several hours later: "Small typo last night. When I said I'd been in 'a man', I meant Amman. Apologies."

Clarkson's new show, which he will present alongside Richard Hammond and James May, is scheduled for an autumn release date.

This will follow the launch of the BBC's revamped Top Gear in May, with Chris Evans at the helm.
