So, if I told you that he's managed to piss his neighbours off by blowing up his £4 million house, you'd probably just think it was 'typical Clarkson', wouldn't you? Which is exactly what his neighbours said, too.
Now, it's not as serious as it all sounds. He had permission from the council to demolish his house, and he had dutifully sent letters to his surrounding neighbours to inform them. But it seems as though that wasn't enough, because a few of them are fuming.
Clarkson is planning to replace the poky five-bedroom farmhouse he destroyed with a 'modest' six-bedroom country farmhouse with a basement cinema. Epic Clarkson.
One neighbour told the Mirror: "Any normal person would get in people to take it apart conventionally, but he blows it up. He blew up the entire house."
I actually think this is quite cool and I'd be made up if one of my neighbours decided to do this. Having said that, I don't live in an area where the houses cost £4 million.
