Paddy McGuinness decided to put his own spin on Jeremy Clarkson's annual A-Level tweet by making a little jibe at the presenter.

As he has done every year for the past few years, Clarkson told followers disappointing results needn't be something to worry about by pointing out his own success.

He wrote on Thursday: "A level results not great? Don’t worry, I got a C and 2 Us and I’m currently building a large house with far reaching views of the Cotswolds."

Inspired by the 60-year-old's tweet, McGuinness used it to joke about Top Gear.

"A level results not great? Don’t worry, I got a C and two Us and I’m the host of the worlds biggest motoring show, Top Gear," the father-of-three wrote, adding a wink emoji.

The 47-year-old took over hosting the car show last year, four years after Clarkson's contract with the programme was terminated in 2015.

Clarkson was dropped from the show after a "fracas" with producer Oisin Tymon, which allegedly saw the latter struck in the face.

He went on to sign up to The Grand Tour series for Amazon Prime along with Richard Hammond and James May, who left the BBC programme when Clarkson was axed.

Earlier in the year he said he probably would’ve left Top Gear by now even without the dismissal.

Top Gear welcomed McGuinness to the presenting line-up in the 27th series along with Freddie Flintoff, joining the already established Chris Harris.

The new additions proved successful as an increase in viewing figures has promoted it to BBC One from BBC Two.
