Hitting back, Clarkson has responded to Packham's foul-mouthed tweet about him – to correct his grammar in the latest development of their fallout.
Clarkson, 63, has now replied to the post on social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, saying: "It’s world’s. Not 'worlds'"
Asked why he was not disputing the term "c**kchafer", Clarkson admitted: "I’m intrigued by that."
Packham, 62, fumed: "Not content with fantasies of throwing s**t over members of the royal family he now slams the worlds greatest broadcaster and the man who has done more than anyone has or ever will to protect life on earth . . . What a massive c***chafer."
Clarkson wrote in his column in The Sun: "There used to be a time when Sir Attenborough would tell us all about the animal he’d found. 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'."
Packham and the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? host previously locked horns in November 2021 over game shooting.
The wildlife presenter – who has received death threats in the past for speaking out against blood sports –has campaigned to ban bird shooting.
Packham has called game shooters “psychopaths” and said he believed hunting was “wrong, pure and simple”.
Clarkson, who keeps and shoots pheasants on his country estate, wrote in his column in The Times: "I get that Chris Packham wants pheasant shooting banned but I think he’s wrong.
"I think that if there were no shooting, landowners would be less bothered about looking after their land.
"I think a great many countrymen who earn a living on shoots would lose their jobs."
Conflict of interests
The Clarkson's Farm star has a track record of voicing his dislike of environmentalists.
The Grand Tour star has in the past found himself to be the target of climate protestors, including an incident in 2009 when activist group Climate Rush dumped horse manure on his lawn.
Packham, who has previously taken part in Extinction Rebellion protests, recently presented Channel 4 documentary, Is It Time To Break The Law?, examining the extremes of activism taken by climate change protesters in recent years.
Meghan Markle comments
The wildlife presenter's mention of the royal family in his outburst refers to Clarkson's controversial column about Meghan Markle in The Sun a year ago.
Clarkson was investigated by press regulator Ipso and issued a rare apology after writing a column in which he said "hated" the Duchess of Sussex and wife of Prince Harry and dreamed of her being paraded naked around Britain while excrement was thrown at her.
He later wrote: “I really am sorry. All the way from the balls of my feet to the follicles on my head. This is me putting my hands up. It’s a mea culpa with bells on.”
Packham spoke out saying he thought Clarkson should be jailed for hate crime over his comments.
It’s hate crime , pure & simple . If there were any sort of justice there would be laws that would jail him . And shut down the publisher . Is this the country we want to live in ? Is this what we should tolerate ? We must ask ourselves - where is this leading ? Nowhere good .
