Jeremy Clarkson’s ex-girlfriend Phillipa Sage claims he told her they were meant to be together – shortly before he went out with his current girlfriend.
The Top Gear presenter, 62, is currently dating Lisa Hogan, but dated Phillipa, 52, after meeting while working on the show together.
She previously told Hertfordshire Life that she was a ‘PA, goffer and fixer’ to Jeremy on BBC’s Top Gear Live.
They were a couple for seven years before splitting in 2017, with Phillipa once sharing that it took her ‘a long time’ to move on from the break up.
Now, she’s reflecting back on their romance, telling Mail Online that Jeremy was once full of nothing but adoration for her.
‘He’d actually told me, “I was born for you”, and asked me to stay the night a few days before he was out with Lisa,’ she began.
‘Then, one of my friends pointed out the photograph of him with another woman. I thought, “Oh yes, she’s definitely his type. She’s tall and blonde. He’s gone for the perfect upgrade: taller, skinnier, younger”. So I was like, “F**k off, what are you doing when we are supposed to be working things out?”.’
She said Jeremy told her to ‘calm down’, assuring Phillipa that Lisa was ‘just a friend’.
However, ‘a couple of weeks later’, he revealed that he ‘wanted to be with her.’
Phillipa went on to talk about having six years of therapy, admitting that seeking professional help ‘saved’ her.
She claims Jeremy still tries to contact her on her birthdays, but she has blocked his number.
Elsewhere, Phillipa revealed she is ‘surprised’ to see Amazon Prime series Clarkson’s Farm thriving, as she expected his Diddly Squat farm dream to be a private venture.
The TV star launched his programme last Summer, following his attempts to run an expanse of land in Oxfordshire with Kaleb Cooper at his side.
Phillipa said: ‘I’m shocked at what he’s done with it now because I thought he always wanted to keep his private life private. He wanted peace and quiet.
‘He talked about me running the shop — a sort of mini Daylesford — but like it being a sweet vegetable barn not a blimming commercial enterprise. I don’t get it.’
Clarkson’s Farm is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
