The Grand Tour host Jeremy Clarkson’s daughter Emily Clarkson, 25, spoke candidly about her father in a recent clip from his YouTube channel FoodTribe. The former Top Gear presenter’s eldest daughter dished on the worst meal the car-enthusiast ever cooked, which she said left her “traumatised”.

Emily revealed Jeremy had returned from the Far East and considered himself a connoisseur of the traditional Vietnamese dish pho.

Speaking on FoodTribe, she explained: “When my dad came back from some time in the Far East, he kind of fancied himself as a bit of pho maker.

“And he made this pho soup for my brother and I, and it was honestly the most traumatising thing I’ve ever eaten.”

Pho is a Vietnamese soup that is normally made with a bone-beef broth, banh pho noodles and thinly sliced beef.

Emily continued: “I’ve never quite wanted to die quite like I did after that first mouthful.

“I don’t know how someone could put so much chilli into something that was so clear.”

Jeremy often flies around the world for filming purposes for his car shows, including The Grand Tour.

The car-enthusiast revealed he has had his fair share of unusual delicacies, from tarantulas, to a sparrow, grasshoppers to a frog and even a kangaroo.

But Jeremy admitted the “worst moment” he experienced was eating a bat which he had in a curry.

Writing in his column for The Sun, Jeremy explained: “Over the years, I’ve eaten and drunk all sorts of things you won’t find on the menu in ­McDonalds.”

He continued: “The worst thing I ever ate, however, was a bat.

“They’d put it in quite a good curry, so the taste wasn’t so bad, but the bones?”

Jeremy described the dish as if he was “eating a cemetery” due to the number of bones inside of a bat.

Elsewhere, the former Top Gear presenter, who lives in a cottage with his girlfriend Lisa Hogan, admitted attempting to please her daughter cost him £4,000.

Writing in his column for The Times, Jeremy explained his girlfriend’s daughter wanted her friend to stay with them which prompted him to purchase a caravan.

Detailing his residence, he added: “The sitting room is nine feet by nine and the kitchen is eight by four.

“So when my girlfriend’s daughter announced she wanted a friend to stay, I had to point out that social distancing would be mathematically impossible.”

Jeremy said the “shade of green” caravan was “built in Grimsby in the 1990s, it’s a 35ft Cosalt Rimini”.

He added that it includes two bedrooms, a kitchen and a spacious living room.

Revealing the price it had cost him, he continued: “That means I was left with a four grand hole in my bank account and, for no good reason, a sick-green caravan in the yard. I was cross.”
