Jeremy Clarkson steps out with Lisa Hogan

The building furore over plans to film The Grand Tour on location in the sleepy Cotswold countryside was brushed aside as Jeremy Clarkson made his first red carpet appearance with girlfriend Lisa Hogan at the GQ Men of the Year Awards.

The divisive presenter, 56, was arm in arm with Hogan, 46, outside London’s Tate Modern as the annual event kicked off on Tuesday evening.

Posing for photos outside the lavish venue, Clarkson was overshadowed by his glamorous younger girlfriend, whose lemon yellow minidress ensured she claimed her fair share of the spotlight on a red carpet dominated by glamorous ensembles.

A thigh-skimming hemline showed off the attractive blonde’s toned legs, while its fitted design drew further attention to her slender physique as she posed for photos alongside her boyfriend.

Joining Lisa, Jeremy looked appropriately smart in a black-two piece suit and crisp white shirt, teamed with smart suede dress shoes.  

The event was their first significant public appearance since confirming their relationship - Jeremy's first since divorcing second wife Frances Cain - in February.
