Writing in her The Sun column, Katie then takes aim at the Beeb, adding: “The nation watches in horror, the culprits look like utter gits and Britain loses a national treasure. I am sick of the BBC lauding it about, made fat and rich on the taxes of hard workers, paying themselves huge salaries to have meetings about digital platforms and online content.
“Who cares about online content? People like cars,” she continues. “Jeremy likes cars. Let Jeremy do what he does best and talk to people about cars.”
Katie previously tweeted about the matter, blasting Jeremy's suspension as "lefty lunacy".
A number of TV fans agree with Katie, and by Friday morning, the Bring Back Clarkson online petition had over 830,000 signatures.
