Jeremy Clarkson calls out Bradley Walsh being named richest TV presenter

Jeremy Clarkson calls out Bradley Walsh being named richest TV presenter

Clarkson responded to the news on Twitter

Jeremy Clarkson has called out Bradley Walsh after the star was named the richest TV presenter.

Walsh, 63, previously had a career in professional football before he made the move to TV, which has seen him acting in the likes of Coronation Street and Doctor Who, as well as presenting a number of game shows – most notably, The Chase.

Earlier this week, The Sun reported that Walsh had become the wealthiest TV presenter, with a fortune of £18.6 million.

The outlet cited new figures from his WingIt Productions firm, which showed his assets have boosted by £3.5 million over the past 12 months.

The Sun added that this placed him at the top, beaten only by Ant and Dec’s combined wealth.

However, one Twitter user questioned the news, suggesting that Clarkson, also 63, was surely the richest.

They wrote: “I think @JeremyClarkson is the UK's richest tv presenter, he's certainly worth way more than Bradley Walsh. All 3 #thegrandtour presenters according to Google are worth over £40 million.”

Last year, it was reported Clarkson had a net worth of £55.8 million

Indeed, he seemed to dispute that Walsh was the wealthiest in the game – but not because he felt he was necessarily top dog.

He replied: “You’re forgetting Sir Attenborough.”

Clarkson fired back on Twitter.

Last year, it was reported that Attenborough, 96, was worth £27.2 million – though since then, of course, he has appeared in four hugely popular nature series, including Attenborough and the Mammoth Graveyard, Dinosaurs: The Final Day, the BBC’s Attenborough’s Wonder of Songs and Global Adventure on Sky.

Reports in April also suggested Attenborough earned over £3,000 a minute for his work over the previous year, with claims he made more than £1.3million last year up to September alone.

While this is all speculative, and obviously subject to huge levels of tax, it’s probably fair to assume that none of the fellas are doing particularly badly.

LADbible has reached out to representatives for Walsh, Clarkson and Attenborough for comment.

Clarkson recently offered an update on the third season of Clarkson's Farm, warning that we'll have quite a while yet before it his screens.

Commenting about the topic on Instagram, he wrote: "We actually won't finish filming it till October.

"There's something we are trying which won't be resolved till then.

"So it's a while off yet."

In the meantime, he's keeping himself busy with his stinging nettle soup, which sets customers back £6 a pop.
