Diddly Squat Farm’s Jeremy Clarkson has had his say regarding the recent news of TV chef James Martin’s “bullying” allegations.

It comes as the ITV cook has been accused of "intimidating" and "bullying behaviour" by production crew who worked with him while filming his show James Martin's Spanish Adventure in May this year.

Meanwhile, The Sun has since exclusively revealed a Zoom recording of the Yorkshire star, where he “unleashed his anger” at staff when filming at his home during 2018 for James Martin’s Saturday Morning.

In the 10-minute “rant”, the 51-year-old swears 42 times as he explains the drain at his home was blocked by the crew.

During the recording, he said: "I am absolutely furious, beyond belief. It’s my home, it’s my house. It’s my f***ng house.

"Nobody listens, nobody f***ing listens do they. I will not put up with this, this is b****cks.

"A driveway that cost me £26,000 is f***ed because somebody put a load of oil in the f***ing bin that’s now dripped everywhere and f***ing ruined my driveway."

Jeremy Clarkson says ‘does this man know nothing about TV?’

Writing for The Sun, the Top Gear star said: “After reading about chef James Martin’s sweary rant at a TV crew who’d broken his kitchen, I rolled my eyes and thought: ‘Does this man know nothing about TV?’

“Because as anyone who works in the industry knows, rule number one is: Never let a film crew in your house.

“I’ve worked with the same guys for 20 or more years.

“I admire their skills with the cameras and the sound recording equipment, and I truly enjoy their company.”

He added: “But I would never let them in my house because they’d drag their heavy boxes over the wooden floors, do a reverse-Ikea on all the furniture as they moved it to make way for their equipment and then, because all film crews live on a diet of chilli sauce, make the most godawful smell in the lavatory.

TV chef James Martin apologises on X, after allegations of 'bullying behaviour'

Responding in a statement on X, formerly known as Twitter, James said: “Firstly, I would like to publicly and sincerely apologise to the crew involved in this incident, as I did at the time.

“I have always strived to keep my private life private. However since details of a conversation, which was secretly recorded in January 2018 are now five years later being made public by a former member of our production team, I have decided to make a statement.

“The end of 2017 was one of the most fraught and difficult periods of my life. I was dealing with the death of my last living grandparent, my grandfather, and on account of work commitments I could not attend his funeral.  

“Later that month I was burgled at night by a team of masked men, who entered my house while my partner Louise was at home alone and I was away working. I was devastated that she had to go through that alone.  

“On top of this I was then diagnosed with cancer on my face and I had to have surgery, which I couldn't do until two days before Christmas when we had finished filming. Since then it has returned on several occasions and I have to have regular treatments. 

“After all this stress I was in a very emotional state, and when after filming in early January 2018 I discovered my home had been flooded while filming, I was extremely upset.

“I can only say I am human and following a build-up of personal life pressure, I admit that I overreacted regarding the damage to my home.”
