He said he spent five days of his holiday in Majorca in bed before a doctor sent him for an X-ray and added: “I was admitted immediately. I’m running low on pants now.”

Thanking fans for get-well messages, the 57-year-old wrote online: “It’s really, really annoying because I’ve never had one day off work since I started in 1978.”

Accident-prone co-star Richard Hammond responded: “Wow. I didn’t know he had a job”. Clarkson joked that James May, who makes up the presenting trio, was now the only functioning member of the team, adding: “God help us.”
