Jeremy Clarkson and his girlfriend Lisa Hogan got stuck inside a sports car – because they didn’t know how to open the doors.

The former Top Gear host was test driving a brand-new Maserati MC20 when he and Lisa decided to drive the motor to their local pub, where they were planning to indulge in a fish pie, but the couple soon realised they couldn’t get out.  

Jeremy said: ‘We were in the car and five minutes after that we were in the pub’s car park’.

 ‘And five minutes after that we were still in the pub car park because neither of us could find anything that even remotely resembled a door handle’.

 ‘We’d have been screwed if we’d crashed into a lake,’ Lisa said.

‘Eventually I turned on my phone’s torch and found the little button that you must press to unlatch the door, and then we were out. 

‘And then I was back inside very smartly because the car was starting to roll down a hill.’

After finally discovering a button that activated the handbrake, ‘The Grand Tour’ co-host Jeremy thought he had fixed the issue only to hear ‘bonging noises’ when he got out of the vehicle.

He then called a colleague to get help, and his issue was eventually rectified.

In a review of the car for The Sunday Times newspaper, the 61-year-old TV presenter wrote: ‘After an hour of swearing and wondering out loud whether it would have been easier to stay at home and make a soufflé out of ant hearts, I called a colleague, who said that to engage ‘park’ and turn out the lights I had to stop the engine twice.

‘So I pushed the button to turn the motor off, then pushed it again. Which caused it to start. I then called the colleague again, who said that when I pushed the button the second time my foot had to be off the brake pedal. And he was right, which meant that we just caught last orders.’ 

 This comes after Jeremy was left furious after being pranked by fake protesters for Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

The ex Top Gear host, looked visibly annoyed as he arrived at his Diddly Squat farm to protesters chanting: ‘No more toil, keep your soil’ while holding signs.

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly both 46, who were dressed in disguise, revealed the presenter looked ‘very unimpressed.’

Jeremy looked confused while saying: ‘The thing about soil is that you can’t hurt it.’   

Dec, who donned a wig, taunted the star with a megaphone by saying: ‘Maybe you should phone a friend.’ 

The Undercover segment then sees Ant, hidden away and watching everything on a screen, laughing as he directs someone to handcuff themselves to Jeremy’s jeep.

Jeremy’s daughter Emily, 27 was also spotted this week at an event in celebration of National Woman’s day.

The blonde beauty wore a gorgeous daisy dress to present a live episode of her podcast Should I Delete.

Emily was all smiles as she posed for cameras at the Fenomenal Festival, hosted by George at Asda.
