- An Unlikely Source Reveals Jeremy WAS Offered His 'Top Gear' Role Back
- Chris Evans' Latest Gag Hasn't Impressed 'Top Gear' Fans
James and Richard will front the last episode of ‘Top Gear’ this Sunday, and while Jeremy Clarkson will star in the video features, the studio segments were recorded without him.
Bosses were originally planning to screen two more episodes of the motoring programme, however the content has been condensed into one show.
Discussing James and Richard's emotional final scenes, Andy - who oversaw the filming of the last episode - tells Radio Times: “The final session without Jeremy was very poignant.
After over a decade with the show, Jeremy is now reportedly in talks with Netflix to front a new cars show, along with his former ‘Top Gear’ co-hosts, who he recently completed the ‘Clarkson, Hammond and May’ tour with.
Chris Evans will be taking over ‘Top Gear’ when it returns to screens in March, along with new co-presenters, some of whom will be found through an open audition process.
Jeremy claimed last week that, before the job was offered to Chris, he’d met with BBC bosses to discuss a potential return to ‘Top Gear’ in the future, but turned them down flat, claiming “too much has gone on” for him to ever come back.
However, Chris seemed unimpressed with his claims, insisting that it wasn’t the case and that the controversial TV personality had actually said no to “voices...inside his own head”.
Watch Jeremy's last ever 'Top Gear' scenes on BBC2, Sunday 28 June, at 8pm.
