Jeremy Clarkson, 59, took to social media last night to share an idyllic beach snap.
The Grand Tour presenter posted a picture of a woman relaxing in a hammock by the sea with his 2.6 million followers.
The TV star captioned the picture: “Self isolating.”
Jeremy appeared to be poking fun at the term, which has been used in recent government advice given to Britons following the outbreak of the Coronavirus.
His light-hearted remark was met with its intended humour online.
Taking to the comments section of the picture, one fan sarcastically wrote: “Quarantine is clearly on the same level as hell.. I don’t know how you’ll manage, but I’ll pray for you Jezza.”
Another added sarcastically: “That looks terrible… stay safe.”
A third similarly remarked: “Crikey what a horrible place to spend a day.”
The picture showed an unknown women – possibly Jeremy’s girlfriend Lisa Hogan – reading in a hammock tied between two palm trees.
One fan asked: “My question Mr Clarkson is who is the lass? Or is that James letting his hair down?”
Another said: “Where is richard and james?????”(sic)
The user was referring to Jeremy’s Grand Tour co-stars James May and Richard Hammond.
- Jeremy Clarkson’s big announcement away from The Grand Tour
This week, the government said anyone returning from affected areas – including 11 quarantined towns in Northern Italy – should self isolate.
People have been advised to stay home for 14 days if they develop flu-like symptoms.
This advice comes after several schools across the UK were closed yesterday in order to control the spread of the virus, after some teachers and pupils returned to school following half term trips to Italy.
Authorities have confirmed more than 300 cases and 12 deaths in the area.
