Alongside his stand-alone shows, many of which mirrored the format of his newspaper columns and books, he combined his love of driving and motoring journalism, with the examination and expression of his other views on the world – such as in Jeremy Clarkson's Motor world, Jeremy Clarkson's Car Years and Jeremy Clarkson Meets the Neighbours.
Out of everything that Clarkson has done he is most popular for presenting Top Gear. Over the years Clarkson has been in the news for many different things and scandals, and usually he has gotten away with it. Until now that is. Not so long ago Clarkson was suspended by the BBC after he punched his Producer – in a reported ‘fracas’.
For weeks, Clarkson, his co-workers James May and Richard Hammond, and Top Gear fans waited while the BBC bosses decided what to do.
On 25 March 2015, the BBC revealed that Clarkson would be sacked and would not return to present Top Gear. His co-workers James May and Richard Hammond have threatened to not record the show without Clarkson and have said they will quit the show.
After he was sacked, Richard Hammond tweeted ‘Gutted at such a sad end to an era. We’re all three of us idiots in our different ways but it’s been an incredible ride together’
All things considered, do you think the BBC made the right call? And who do you think would be a suitable replacement for Clarkson?
