Jeremy Clarkson is at the centre of an Instagram scam. 

The Clarkson's Farm star took to social media this morning to issue a warning to his followers about a fake account. 

The copy-cat account has the username @jeremyclarksonprivate1 and is pretending to be the real Mr Clarkson's secret account, stating in the bio: "I don't accept followers."

Thousands of people already have fallen for the fake account and it currently has more than 24,000 followers. 

"If you are sent this, ignore it. It’s not me," he wrote on Twitter this morning. 

Mr Clarkson is not the first notable figure in the county to be at the centre of a scam.

In January, Oxford West and Abingdon MP Layla Moran’s Twitter account was hacked with the hacker offering brand new PS5 consoles with the money going to charity.
