Paddy McGuinness makes dig at Jeremy Clarkson over A-level tweet

Top Gear’s Paddy McGuinness has shaded Jeremy Clarkson over his yearly A-level results tweet.

The presenter, who began hosting the BBC car show back in 2019 alongside Freddy Flintoff and Chris Harris, took a cheeky swipe at Jeremy’s humblebrag about his real estate development, before adding it was all in jest.

Taking to Twitter, Paddy typed: ‘A level results not great? Don’t worry, I got a C and two Us and I’m the host of the worlds biggest motoring show, Top Gear.’ (sic)

Paddy posted again later: ‘Some lovely fishing to be had after my last tweet. With the right bait in the water they’ll jump straight into the net.

‘Having said that, a few folk took it literally? The mind boggles?#thursdayfishing.’

Paddy’s dig comes hours after Jeremy’s annual post, which, this time around read: ‘A level results not great?

‘Don’t worry, I got a C and 2 Us and I’m currently building a large house with far reaching views of the Cotswolds.’

He added: ‘And I didn’t even get the chance to insist the government gave me three As instead.’

Jeremy’s A-level tweets have become a yearly tradition, and last year he penned: ‘A level results a bit rubbish? Don’t worry. I got a C and two Us and I’ve rented this place for the summer.’

He then shared a snap of a bougie French chateau.

Meanwhile, in 2018, he wrote: ‘And I’m sitting here deciding which of my Range Rovers to use today.’

Today, students up and down the country received their A-level results, following a disruptive school year thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.

Summer exams were cancelled as a result and teachers were told to submit grades they predicted each student would have received if exams had gone ahead.

These grades were moderated by exam school boards, with reports revealing more than a third of school leaver grades in England were downgraded.
