'Top Gear' Host Eddie Jordan Has Some Strong Words For Jeremy Clarkson

He's come out swinging against his predecessor.

New ‘Top Gear’ recruit Eddie Jordan has come out fighting against Jeremy Clarkson, ahead of their new series’ debut.

The revamped ‘Top Gear’ kicks off this weekend, with a whole new team replacing Clarkson and his co-hosts, following his infamous “fracas” with a producer last year.

But while some presenters would want to downplay any kind of comparisons with their predecessors, it seems that new addition Eddie is actually welcoming them, admitting he’s keen to outshine the old trio.

After his controversial departure, Jeremy was quickly followed by Richard Hammond and James May, with the three of them currently gearing (oh, see what we did there?) up for the launch of their new series, ‘The Grand Tour’, which will begin streaming on Amazon Prime this autumn.

‘Top Gear’ kicks off on Sunday night, at 8pm on BBC Two.
