Jeremy Clarkson Compared To Hagrid And Santa After Growing A Beard

Jeremy Clarkson has revealed that lockdown has finally got the better of him and he's decided to grow out a big beard.

It's a bit of a change for Clarkson, who has previously said that he hates beards and would arrest anyone he saw sporting facial fuzz, but it's been a long year for us all since last March, hasn't it?

In the end, it looks like Jeremy has abandoned the razor and clippers and allowed his facial hair to take over.

In fact, plenty of fans have made comparisons such as Santa Claus, Hagrid from the Harry Potter franchise, and even Arnold Schwarzenegger in one of the later Terminator films.

In reality, he just looks like Jeremy Clarkson if he spent several months living in the wilderness, perhaps for some sort of Bear Grylls type of show?

The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? presenter debuted his new beardy look in an Instagram photo on Sunday, much to the shock and amusement of his followers.

He captioned the picture: "Face furniture: model's own."

The comments have predictably poked quite a bit of fun at the former Top Gear host.

One person said: "Alright Hagrid."

Another wrote: "Lockdown is too much for Jeremy."

A third said: "Hi Santa season is over, sorry."

He's going to have to keep growing it out quite a bit before he can match up to Robbie Coltrane's Hagrid look, or even Father Christmas.

However, another person said: "Jeremy confirmed to be a yeti."

One followed added: "Jezza you look like a retired biker gangster."

In the past, Clarkson has made no secret of the fact he doesn't like beards, or those that grow them

Evidently that opinion has changed somewhat of late.

In his column for The Sun back in 2015, he said: "It makes you look like you've got something to hide - a dodgy hard drive usually. Or a stash of disgusting magazines.

"Seriously, if I were a policeman I'd arrest anyone with face fuzz on the basis that they are bound to have done something wrong.

"Adolf Hitler, Peter Sutcliffe, Joseph Stalin, Genghis Khan, Osama Bin Laden, Harold Shipman, Pablo Escobar, Saddam Hussein, Che Guevara... All of them had face hair."

Well, his take on beards has clearly shifted in the intervening time.

Either that, or he doesn't really think that, and has made a long successful career out of having contrary and 'controversial' opinions for money?

Who could possibly say?
