Jeremy Clarkson has revealed his new beekeeping hobby took a bad turn when one of his bees stung him on the bottom.
The 60-year-old said he makes sure he is kitted out in protective clothing when he’s getting close to his 250,000 bees but that they manage to find a way in anyway.
“The bees aren’t so bad but it’s just they hate me,” he said. “Even though I wear my full bee suit they worked out how to get into it.”

Clarkson said once he realised that the bees were getting into his suit via a little gap between his shoes and the special beekeeping outfit, he tried to thwart them by wearing wellies.
However, at least one found a way in.
“The bee got in the bottom, crawled up the Wellington, up the jeans trouser until it got between there and my T-shirt where it found an interesting crack, down it went and then stung me,” he said.

"And when you’re in a bee suit you can’t get the bee out. I knew it was there dying in my underpants. I just thought, ‘God this honey better sell’.”
The eight-part show – entitled I Bought A Farm – will follow the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? star as he runs the 1,000 acre property.
It is expected to land on Amazon Prime in 2021.
