Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson shared his dismay over the BBC show Pointless fronted by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman. The Grand Tour host stated that the BBC programme may appear "seemingly harmless" but has since voiced his concerns.
The 60-year-old explained that the popular quiz show has made him feel "four million years older than everyone else in the country".
It comes after contestants were quizzed about a unit of length but one person was "unsure" of the answer.
Jeremy confessed that the "much younger" contestant wasn't "stupid" but it only proved how old he feels.
He explained: "Much to my surprise, one contestant was very unsure of what unit of length, that began with the letter Y, is equal to 3ft.

"And then, later, another was similarly confused by what small unit of length, beginning with the letter I, is equivalent to 2.54 centimetres."
Jeremy continued: "These people weren’t stupid. But they were MUCH younger than me."
He continued in his latest column for the Sun, that his feeling of being old didn't stop there after another question showed dates as "CE" or "BCE".
The presenter said: "Apparently, it stands for 'common era' or 'before common era' and is intended to make those who don’t believe in the baby Jesus feel more comfortable.
