The 58-year-old went one step further and offered a wager for charity for anyone to find something misogynistic in his TV output.

He said: 'I still have that £10,000 to a charity of your choice if you can find a sexist thing I've ever uttered on television. 

'A woman took me up on it but had to give up after a two-year search because I never have.'

He, along with colleagues James May and Richard Hammond, were speaking at a screening for their upcoming new series of The Grand Tour, which returns for a third series on Amazon Prime on January 18.

Clarkson added: 'We've been every other '˜ist', but we've never been sexist.

'It's just an assumption. I'm too old these days to listen to that nonsense.'
