Jeremy Clarkson has confirmed that he will return for the next series of Top Gear alongside Richard Hammond and James May unless he is eaten by “a pack of wild dogs.”
The news comes after rife rumours that he presenter had in fact been fired by the BBC following complaints of racism against him earlier in the year, when a previously unaired video surfaced online of Clarkson muttering the “Eney meeny miny mo” nursery rhyme which was allegedly followed by an offensive term for ethnic minority groups.
The 54 year old has written in the most recent issue of the TV shows magazine that Top Gear will return for a new series in 2015 and that he will still be the main presenter.
“There has been a lot of stuff in the newspapers recently about the future of Top Gear. Some seem to think there isn’t one. But I can assure you, there is. There are also those who think I won’t be part of it. Well, sorry, but I am. Unless I am eaten by a pack of wild dogs before the next series starts early next year.”
We are really pleased to hear that Clarkson will return to host the show near alongside his co-presenters. Top Gear has a huge following and the most respected motoring show on television, and we can’t imagine what it would be like without him.
