Jeremy Clarkson Devastated by Animal Tragedy at Diddly Squat Farm: ‘Heartbroken’ and ‘upset’



TV personality Jeremy Clarkson faced a tragic loss over the festive season at his Diddly Squat Farm, leaving him and partner Lisa Hogan devastated. The couple mourned the passing of Lisa’s cherished horse, Bertie, just before Christmas. Bertie, aged 26, left both Clarkson and Lisa profoundly saddened by his unexpected demise.

In a somber note shared in his column for The Times, the former Top Gear host hinted at additional misfortune during the holiday season. Describing the heartbreaking discovery of Bertie’s lifeless body lying in a stream, Clarkson expressed his own dismay at the loss, stating, “It wasn’t a fun event, even for me, and I didn’t like it one bit.”

Reflecting on the distressing incident, Clarkson shared, “When Lisa’s horse died, I was upset because I could see she was. And because I would have to deal with it.” Recounting the distress of finding Bertie, Clarkson depicted the scene as they stumbled upon the horse, “lying on his side, in a stream.”

The distressing turn of events appeared to cast a shadow over their Christmas celebrations. Clarkson, in his characteristic manner, mused about the potential for further unpleasant incidents, from an errant cow causing road havoc to unpredictable farm occurrences like a sheep’s spontaneous combustion or a fox intruding into the henhouse.

This recent loss compounds an already challenging period for Clarkson, who earlier in December shared concerning health updates with his fans. The 63-year-old admitted to experiencing physical difficulties, including breathlessness and coughing fits during routine walks with his son.

Clarkson’s struggle to maintain pace during walks with his 26-year-old son hints at his deteriorating health, lamenting that he’s left breathless and unable to focus on activities that once came easily. His introspection on aging reveals a growing realization that his body is gradually failing him.

The heartfelt loss of Lisa Hogan’s horse and Clarkson’s personal health struggles cast a somber note over their holiday season, marking a period of reflection and challenges for the television personality.
