Jeremy Clarkson had a blunt reaction to a letter from Brio Retirement Living, which offers retirement community living. The star of Clarkson's Farm caused quite the stir among his followers as he posted the letter on his social media.

The 64-year-old shared an image of the invitation to his 8.1 million Instagram fans. The letter read: "Dear Occupier, your exclusive invitation is enclosed."

Alongside the photo, he bluntly captioned: "You can f*** off." This prompted a wave of laughter in the comments section as fans chimed in with their witty takes on the unexpected mail, reports the Express.

Some followers made light-hearted references to Clarkson's ongoing disputes with his local council regarding his Diddly Squat Farm ventures. "Council doing anything to get you gone pal," joked one follower.

"It's the council trying everything," another added, accompanied by a laughing emoji. A third suggested: "Let me guess, council voted for this?"

Others speculated that it was a practical joke from James May, Clarkson's co-presenter on Top Gear and The Grand Tour. "James May sent it to you! " one fan speculated. "James May sent this," echoed another.

There were also suggestions that the letter was actually meant for May, with one fan asserting: "They sent the letter to the wrong house. It was supposed to go to James."

"The next series with you and James May," another quipped, adding a laughing emoji for good measure. Fans have been playfully speculating about future episodes of Clarkson's Farm, with one saying: "Tonight! I get put into a care home.."

Others joined in the jest, with comments like "Tonight, i win a game of bingo in The old peoples home," and "Tonight, I defend my property from the council," the latter poking fun at Jeremy's frequent battles with local authorities in the Cotswolds

The banter continued with another fan saying: "Tonight, I stare at some trees whilst Kaleb knits," referencing farm favourite Kaleb Cooper, while someone else humorously suggested: "Kaleb definitely signed him up."

A spokesperson for Brio Retirement Living said: “We wholeheartedly apologise to Mr Clarkson for sending him an invitation to our luxurious development in Stow-on-the-Wold. We obviously know Diddly Squat about his future retirement plans.

"It seems that our inclusive fun retirement village for youthful older people isn’t for him. Knowing his views on electric cars we know he wouldn’t like our EV charging points either. Saying that, we have reached out to Mr Clarkson to offer him our apologies in person over a drink in our onsite Slate & Grain Brasserie, Bar and Coffee Lounge – and he’s more than welcome to take a look around our properties and meet our very happy homeowners.

"On that bombshell … we know he’s very vocal on Instagram and are all hoping for a follow too!”

For those eager to catch up, all three series of Clarkson's Farm are currently available on Amazon Prime Video.
