Jeremy, 51, caught on cam­era the fe­male driver shout­ing at him just be­cause he was cy­cling in front of her.

The con­fronta­tion be­gan in Kens­ing­ton, Lon­don, when the Vaux­hall driver got frus­trated at be­ing stuck be­ing Jeremy, who was cy­cling in the mid­dle of the road to avoid hit­ting car doors.

She blares her horn, be­fore leap­ing from her car and shout­ing, “You don’t re­spect your f**king life”, then ap­pears to shake Jeremy’s bi­cy­cle.

The woman al­legedly mimed pulling a gun trig­ger at him in a sec­ond con­fronta­tion.

Vet­eran broad­caster Jeremy posted the vid on his Face­book page and con­firmed he has re­ported the in­ci­dent to the po­lice.

He added: “I feel the per­son you see on the tape will at some point hurt some­one badly.”

Face­book fans backed him. Fiona McKenna wrote: “Picked on the wrong cy­clist there.”
