He is a journalist who rose to prominence as the lead host of the world’s coolest car review show and most watched factual TV production Top Gear. Jeremy made headlines all over the world in 2015 after the BBC (the network behind Top Gear) sacked him for punching a producer. But as they say, the best ones are always sought after.
Amazon Prime offered Jeremy and his team a staggering amount of money to create a show similar to Top Gear called The Grand Tour. The rest, as they say, is history. The show is now bigger than Top Gear.
Jeremy has always been known to make controversial statements.
He even insulted the British Prime minister on one occasion. But what has he done lately?
Since Jeremy’s job has taken him to almost every country in the world, he decided to name the most annoying airports he has been in.
Unfortunately, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) is on his list.
Right. Jeremy’s top five most annoying airports guide, Gatwick, Luton, JFK, Nairobi, and Atlanta (mainly because I don’t like the carpets)

But there’s no need to worry. He said that on a positive note.
One Twitter user asked him why he had placed Nairobi on the list and he replied saying it was because of the strict security measures.
@JeremyClarkson not that I’m surprised…but which one of the myriad of frustrations in Nairobi raises it to such an exalted position?

At least we can be reassured that JKIA takes security issues very seriously regardless of whether you are Jeremy Clarkson or Njoroge.
The Kenya Airports Authority also decided to chip in.
