Jeremy Clarkson has been pictured standing beside a Citroen with its bonnet up, to the amusement of passers by.
The new citreon is thought to be a press vehicle and it’s not known what the cause of the breakdown was.
Onlookers said Clarkson saw the funny side but seemed embarrassed by the situation, according to The Sun.
One onlooker said: “He was talking to two people on the street.
“There were two RAC people checking his car.
“He seemed very calm but he did look a bit embarrassed when he saw me taking pictures.”
