Former Top Gear star James May, 57, took a trip to a health farm in Germany with his long-term partner Sarah Frater, where he underwent a “liver detox”. After a medical consultation, the car enthusiast said he was put on a diet, but soon became ill.
I could hardly see anymore and I was faint and trembling with hunger.
James began by telling listeners the trip was his partner’s idea as “she’s always wanted to do it”.
After taking a medical consultation, professionals put forward an idea to James which they believed could improve his health.
But, despite his attempts at following a “starvation diet”, James made a U-turn two days in and asked for a chicken curry instead.
He explained: “They put me on a starvation diet, all I could do was chew a herbal infusion.

“Sarah sat there having the food that they do, it’s fairly simple food and small portions.
“So I had to chew tea for two days and had to do this liver detox.
“I’m not sure your listeners are going to want to hear this.”
He continued: “She wanted to try a [health] clinic for a week and I did it. It made me ill to be honest.”
