Jeremy Clarkson, "Top Gear's" mercurial former lead host, hinted over the weekend that he could return to TV with a new car show. In his weekly column on the Sunday Times, Clarkson chronicled every maudlin detail of his of life since the BBC banished him from the show he built into an entertainment powerhouse.
Jeremy Clarkson allegedly punched a producer of the BBC because he was offered a cold platter rather than a steak. The "Top Gear" host was not happy with the selection of cold meats and cheese he was given after a day of shooting, The Mirror reports.
Jeremy Clarkson is returning to TV and to his former home at the BBC. But just for one night. The bombastic TV host and automotive journalist has been hired to guest host an episode of the BBC news quiz show "Have I Got News For You" on April 24.
It's official. The "Top Gear" that become a global medial phenomenon is over. Over the weekend, the BBC aired the final episode of the car show featuring the hosting trio of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May.
Jeremy Clarkson, the Top Gear presenter who has been suspended by the BBC after allegedly punching a producer last week, confessed to the incident because his own team was turning on him, the Daily Mirror reports.
Clarkson waited five full days before picking up the phone to tell BBC television chief Danny Cohen that he “forcibly manhandled” producer Oisin Tymon, the website said.
The BBC is refusing to discuss whether Top Gear will ever return to television after Jeremy Clarkson was suspended over a “fracas” with a colleague and the rest of the current series was pulled from the schedules, despite a petition with nearly 390,000 signatures to reinstate the star.
Clarkson, 54, is reported to have tried to punch a male producer of the BBC Two show last week. The incident was only reported to the corporation on Monday, resulting in his suspension on Tuesday.
