It’s Official: Jeremy Clarkson Has Been Fired From Top Gear

Top Gear Jeremy Clarkson frowning

Putting all speculations to rest, controversial Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson has officially been fired by the BBC, bringing to an end an incredible career that saw Top Gear become the world’s most widely-watched TV show.

Clarkson’s future with the show had been in limbo after he got into an altercation with a producer over a poorly-prepared meal, just one of several mishaps he’s had with the guys at BBC. According to BBC director-general Lord Hall, the company held the position that such petulant behavior would not be tolerated.

As you can imagine, his co-hosts — Richard Hammond and James May — were distraught by the decision, with May seemingly quitting the show himself.

As for who will replace Clarkson if BBC decides to continue with Top Gear, all eyes are on Breakfast Show host Chris Evans, a self-professed addict and once a “Star in the Reasonably Priced Car.”

Do you think Jeremy Clarkson deserved to be fired? Does his departure mark the end of Top Gear? Let us know in the comments below.
