David Attenborough’s Planet Earth III teased in trailer
Jeremy Clarkson has revaled he “hates” the new series of David Attenborough’s Planet Earth and has called for a change.
The Grand Tour star said although he has been “glued” to the BBC show’s new episodes, he believes David’s storytelling is not as good as it used to be.
Giving his reasons, Jeremy, 63, said: “Oh the photography is brilliant. Spellbinding even. But the words are driving me insane.”
He went on to say that there was a time when he was fascinated with how David would tell viewers all about the animals, “but now all we ever get is, ‘Here’s a see-through fish with an orange stomach, and it’s future is threatened by climate change’.
“And then it’s, ‘Here’s something with pointy teeth and soon it will be wiped out by global warming’.”

The presenter added in his The Sun column that such information is already known to viewers and urged David to “tell us about the animals, not the b****y weather”.
It’s not the first time Jeremy has taken a swipe at the BBC narrator and the show.
Last year, he slammed Frozen Planet II, claiming the programme was no longer “fun” and said the BBC was only concerned about pushing “the message of climate change”.
Of David, he added: “He just reads out words that have been written by a team of vegan communists who have only one thing on their minds.
“I’ve been watching Frozen Planet II and it’s a joke, because we learn nothing at all.

“We see some dramatic footage of a polar bear and before we are told anything at all, we are warned that because of human activity and capitalism and Donald Trump, the poor bear’s habitat is disappearing.”
Ahead of the new series, David passionately claimed that humanity needs to learn to show more restraint for the good of the natural world.
The narrator said there was “huge problem” in the way humans had “gobbled up space as though it belongs to us and nobody else”.
“And, the notion that you should actually have to restrain yourself in order to accommodate the natural world is not one which everybody feels. We need to persuade people that it’s quite a selfish thing to do,” he added to The Guardian.
He went on to discuss how the BBC had played a vital part in the public’s awareness of the climate crisis, adding it was “an important issue” in the show that is “full of drama and excitement”.
Meanwhile, viewers have been expressing their thoughts about the latest series so far, with many left in tears during the latest episode.
One wrote: “Dying pearl purple octopus, Wailing seals being torn from their family. I am a wreck. #PlanetEarth.”
Another commented: “I really don’t recommend watching planet earth III pregnant, I’m a bl***y mess #planetearth.”
“Getting upset over an octopus mama, and now a sealion mama, so pleased she was reunited with her cub #planetearth,” a third typed.
