Top Gear Off The Air With Jeremy Clarkson Suspended

Pop Culture

If you hadn’t of already heard the news then you must have been living under a rock or perhaps left the planet last week. Jeremy Clarkson was suspended and Top Gear taken off the air for an unknown period of time for what BBC are calling a fracas between Jeremy Clarkson and a producer. Last Sunday Top Gear was not aired, to the disappointment of many fans, and it’s still unknown if the shows which are still due to be shown will ever be seen again. The future of the show with Jeremy Clarkson at the helm is uncertain too, and will it mean Richard Hamster Hammond and James Captain Slow May deciding to call it a day, not to mention Jeremy’s school friend and executive producer of Top Gear Andy Wilman.

Clarkson has the support of many fans, with a petition who want to bring back Clarkson getting almost a million people signing it in support, and that number will probably increase. OFCOM have even had complaints over the show not being broadcast last Sunday! The show is one of the most profitable for the BBC, with an estimated global audience of 350 million!
