Following an investigation into his recent conduct, the BBC has reportedly made the decision to sack Top Gear presenter, Jeremy Clarkson, but the world’s favourite car show will apparently still be made after he’s gone.
According to The Telegraph, the BBC will announce Clarkson’s sacking today following an investigation into an alleged incident where Clarkson attacked a producer. The report says that Clarkson spent a period of 20 minutes abusing a male producer before physically assaulting him.
Top Gear isn’t set to die with Clarkson’s departure. It’s being reported that BBC Radio 2 presenter and former Top Gear guest Chris Evans is being courted for the job.
The BBC Director General, Lord Tony Hall, is expected to make the announcement later on in the day.
We’ll update this story once the announcement is official. Stay tuned.
