Jeremy Clarkson has a message for anyone feeling worried about their A-level results today.

The controversial former Top Gear host revealed he walked away with a C and two Us from his time at college - and was keen to stress that it failed to impact his life. Clarkson, who is worth an estimated £30 million, has enjoyed a successful career as a journalist and broadcaster. Even his Top Gear sacking failed to derail him, and he recently confirmed he would be fronting a new motoring show with Amazon Prime (and a reported £160 million budget).

As students across the country celebrated or commiserated, Clarkson provided those who performed less well with his own experience of flunking out of college.

His message followed news that a record number of students are expected to head to university this year after the pass-rate rose back up to 98.1 per cent. By midnight, 409,410 people had been accepted on to higher education courses in the UK.
