JEREMY Clarkson was left fretting after he discovered a toad in his toilet while filming The Grand Tour in southeast Asia yesterday.
The 58-year-old car fanatic took to Instagram to document his unwanted amphibian friend and declared the discovery “an emergency” as he pleaded with his 2million followers for help.
In the first of two clips, which was captioned: “This is an EMERGENCY and I need advice”, Jeremy’s unexpected visitor can be seen jumping up and down the toilet bowl before finding solace down the hole.
Panicking as the creature kept reappearing, he said in the short video: “The situation is quite bad, that is toad in the hold quite literally.
“Right, how do you get out of there? That is a toad’s leg, well its a whole toad, you just see it’s leg.”
With the toad not going anywhere, he shared a second clip of the slippery character soaking up his toilet water, which was captioned: “Toad update. May contain turd.”

“It’s there,” he began. “At first I thought I had done some terrible s*** but that’s an actual toad.
“Look at him, is it two toads? No, what’s going on? That is a toad in the lavatory. I do not know what to do.”
Jeremy added that he was dealing with the “emergency” by fleeing – although it is common to frogs appear in tropical countries during dry seasons.
In a sped up clip of himself walking along a cliff, he wrote: “Dealing with the toad issue by fleeing.”
Yesterday, it was revealed that Jeremy was forced to go alcohol free when he filmed the Amazon Prime show in Mongolia.
The petrol head was stunned to find there was no booze in his ration box when he and his co-stars, James May and Richard Hammond, arrived to the country.
Speaking to the Mirror Online, he said: “Mongolia was nuts, although what made Mongolia nuts is that the producers packed everything we would need for seven days, and they didn’t pack a single, tiny bit of alcohol.”
Jeremy and his colleagues were forced to “sleep rough”, did not have much food to tuck into, and worst of all, did not have the luxury of a little tipple either.

He continued: “We had to sleep rough, we didn’t have much food, and then there was no drink.”
Jeremy thinks the lack of alcohol was a “deliberate ploy” from the film crew.
He quipped: “It was a deliberate ploy, I think. Although nobody’s admitting to it.”
