Writing in his column in the Sunday Times, Jeremy Clarkson has revealed he wants to star in another “car show” and admits there is no way back for him with Top Gear.
He said: “I have lost my baby but I shall create another. I don’t know who the other parent will be or what the baby will look like, but I cannot sit around any more organising my photograph album. Let’s stop being silly and pick up the pieces and start again … I just know I’m going to do another car show.”
Jeremy said he even considered turning his back on presenting altogether in the immediate fall-out from the incident.
In a bizarre turn of events, Jeremy Clarkson is set to return to the BBC next month, when he presents the satirical quiz show Have I Got News For You, despite not having his Top Gear contract renewed.
A BBC spokeswoman said: “Jeremy’s contract has not been renewed on Top Gear but he isn’t banned from appearing on the BBC.”
So Jeremy isn’t banned from the BBC then. But he has been suspended since March 10th, whatever that means. Perhaps his suspension for the “fracas” with Oisin Tymon only prevents him from continuing with Top Gear. Or is the BBC planning to occasionally insert Jeremy into other shows until the whole “fracas shitstorm” blows over, before renewing his contract for Top Gear in 2016?
We recently added some new additions to our range on RedBubble, including new Top Gear pop art of Jeremy, Richard and James – inspired by the prints which were seen in the original BBC America teaser trailer for Top Gear Series 22.
They are available as canvas or paper prints, cushion covers, phone cases and more.
Ex-Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson has reportedly accepted an offer to star in the second season of the American television drama series Better Call Saul. It is understood that talks between Saul’s creator Vince Gilligan and Clarkson took place early last month, shortly after he was suspended by the BBC.
Clarkson’s publicist from Performing Artistes Agency, Linda Roch, confirmed the signing this morning, just hours after his contract with the BBC lapsed.
With Jeremy Clarkson officially out of the BBC and a high probability that May and Hammond will follow suit, Top Gear executive producer Andy Wilman has quit through an email forwarded to his former BBC colleagues with the subject “Au revoir“.
