- Can 'Top Gear' Continue Without Jeremy Clarkson? Two Former Stigs Weigh In
It was announced last week that the controversial TV presenter had been suspended from the BBC motoring show, following what was dubbed a “fracas” with a producer, and he’s now let them have it during a speech at a charity auction.
He told the audience at the Roundhouse in Camden on Thursday night: “The BBC have f***ed themselves… it was a great show and they f***ed it up.”
During the event, Jeremy was persuaded to offer one lap around the ‘Top Gear’ track for auction, which went for £100,000, to which he told the crowd: “I’ll drive somebody around in whatever I can get hold of. I’m sacked so it’s probably an Austin Maestro.
“But anyway it will be my last ever lap of the 'Top Gear' track.”
He added: “I didn’t foresee my sacking but I would like to do one last lap. So I’ll go down to Surrey and I’ll do one last lap of that track before the fucking bastards sack me.”
Jeremy previously admitted that he didn’t think his future on the show was looking particularly rosy after his suspension, telling reporters that he thought his sacking from ‘Top Gear’ was coming “very soon”.
The BBC, however, are remaining quiet on the matter, claiming in a statement on Thursday: "Following last week’s suspension of Jeremy Clarkson, Ken MacQuarrie is now considering the evidence and will report to the Director-General on his findings next week.
"Once this has been considered, we will set out any further steps. The BBC will not be offering further commentary until then."
Over the past 12 months, Clarkson has come under fire for a number of incidents related to his role on the BBC series, most famously after unaired footage surfaced online where he appeared to murmur a racist slur during a recitation of the children's rhyme 'Eenie, Meenie, Miny, Mo'.
Although Jeremy apologised for the clip, insisting the slur was a word he ‘loathed’, many offended viewers called for him to be sacked, and he later admitted that he was on thin ice with bosses at the Beeb, claiming: “I've been told by the BBC that if I make one more offensive remark, anywhere, at any time, I will be sacked.”
