Some “stuck record” news now, with Jeremy Clarkson taking yet another dig at his former employers, at a charity auction which had BBC director Tony Hall in the audience.

Upon learning that Tony was in the audience, the former ‘Top Gear’ couldn’t resist taking a pop at the BBC, as he got up to present one of the night’s prizes.

A BBC investigation, led by BBC Scotland boss Ken MacQuarrie, found that the controversial presenter had subjected the producer in question to a 30-second physical attack and sustained verbal abuse.

It was concluded that the victim was “subject to an unprovoked physical and verbal attack” by Jeremy Clarkson, during which he was “struck, resulting in swelling and bleeding to his lip”.

Since then, he and his former co-presenters have made the jump to Amazon Prime, where they host a new motoring show, ‘The Grand Tour’.

Meanwhile, ‘Top Gear’ is currently into its second series without them as presenters, with Matt LeBlanc currently at the helm.
