Jeremy Clarkson is no stranger to being in the news – and courts the press as much as they enjoy following him around, but the latest wave of press coverage is probably a bit much even for him. With his beloved job at the BBC and by extension role on Top Gear, in serious doubt, Clarkson took another swipe at the BBC on Thursday and is not a happy bunny.
He is not only juggling a wife and mistress (who he was pictured with for the first time in a while this week), but has serious health issues with his BOTH hips in need of replacing, a 40-a-day smoking habit that does not look like abating anytime soon and a penchant for drinking Rose wine by the gallon apparently.
Clarkson is keen to get the whole matter with the BBC resolved and even paid a Roy Keane esque house call to the producer involved in the fracas, but failed to make any headway and despite Top Gear colleagues Richard Hammond et al supporting him, he is still worried about losing his job and ranted he wanted to do a final lap of the track ‘before the f****** b******* sack me’. Nice.
In case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t seen it yet, here is his epic rant in full.
