The 63-year-old TV star, who is best known for presenting ‘Top Gear’ alongside Richard Hammond and James May, admitted his “life satisfaction score” dramatically decreased after he was instructed to exercise at a gym by his personal trainer.

In his latest column for The Sunday Times, he wrote: “I was in a gym, being forced by a man in skin-tight shorts to pick things up so I could put them down again. So my life satisfaction score was about minus a million.”

In January, the ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’ host revealed he had underwent an operation to remove a cyst after having a “miserable” time at a spa resort with his girlfriend Lisa Hogan.

He told The Sun newspaper: “I had a five centimetre cyst, which is now not a cyst any more.

“Lisa took me to a health farm and, well, it was so miserable there that I thought, ‘I’ve got to have this cyst taken out at some point, I may as well go now’.

“So I checked out of the whole place and checked into hospital, because it was more fun having an operation than eating juniper berries all day long.

“As I lay under the surgeon’s knife, I thought ‘this is preferable’.

“I did actually lose a stone though — mind you, half of that was probably the cyst. But it wasn’t cancer. It was never going to be cancerous though — I wasn’t in the mood.”

The ‘Clarkson’s Farm’ star then explained that his awful wellness retreat was made even more painful after being forced to eat “gut-retching” wheatgrass.

He wrote in his column for The Sunday Times: “Now, I’ve eaten grasshoppers and tarantulas, and I once had a seven-day egg, which had a bit of beak and an eye in it. All of those things were pretty awful.

“But nothing — nothing — gets close to the gut-retching dreadfulness of wheatgrass.

“The day wore on and soon I wanted a drink. And then I wanted lunch. So I repaired to the communal dining room — the worst three words in the English language — and was given a beaker of celebrity juice. Which wasn’t a drink. Or lunch.

“It was all lost on me. I’d rather spend a week with Greta Thunberg at a kumbaya festival.”
