Summary

"The highlights of my extraordinary journey with Mr Clarkson included pizza with Harry and Wills; dancing with Mick Jagger on the private island of Mustique (Mick had to pull me up after, shamefully, I could not recover from the twist!); and having happy birthday sung to me by Brian Ferry and Richard E. Grant. I was asked out by Hugh Grant (and went!); partied at what I called Jimmy Carr’s celebtastic weekly house parties attended by Sir Elton John, James Corden and the like; and, at Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch’s engagement party, I received the ultimate compliment on my outfit from the Dame Joan Collins.

The adventures, laughter, drama and excitement were neverending. Party after party, celeb after celeb, private villas, palaces, MPs and royalty adorned our crazy life on this road less travelled.

From the low-budget, dark, smoke- and fume-filled halls of Earls Court Exhibition Centre and the NEC in Birmingham, where the highlights of our nights out were a good curry and gallons of beer followed by ridiculous games of girl-on-girl arm wrestling and the Celebrity Loo Roll Challenge—this entailed Clarkson, Hammond, May or The Stig having to return from the bathroom with loo roll tucked down their trousers, trailing a length of loo paper from cubicle to table without it breaking—Jeremy ascended to great heights, both in his professional career and his personal life. So too did our relationship, leading us both into a social circle that most can only dream of."

In The Wonderful World of Jeremy Clarkson, Phillipa Sage shares her continuing adventures—the ongoing highs, lows and constant mayhem—she shared for so many years with Clarkson and his fellow presenters, Hammond and May, some of which she had begun to detail in her first book, Off Road with Clarkson, Hammond and May.

So bad I can’t stop listening

I’ve never read/listened to a book so bad. The name dropping is unbelievable. I think Jeremy Clarkson is funny but not necessarily a nice man but he doesn’t deserve this load of rubbish from a bitter ex-girlfriend being associated with him.

Anyway back to the story…only name not dropped so far is Mother Theresa

Shocking

This book is so bad. I'd had enough by the end of the 2nd chapter. She could name drop for England. I would have like to read about their affair, but I couldn't bear it any long.
