If you thought Jeremy Clarkson would never appear on the BBC again after he was axed from Top Gear, think again!
The controversial presenter has booked his first appearance on the BBC since he was sacked from the motoring show.
Chris Evans will interview Clarkson on his breakfast show on BBC Radio 2 on Thursday (May 21).
Announcing the news on the programme this morning, Evans said:
Jeremy Clarkson will be here live in the studio and he will be participating in an interview with myself.
He’s going to be here between 8 and half past 8. It’s the first interview he’s given since parting company with the BBC, as far as Top Gear is concerned. And we will be talking about what’s going on with him now, and Richard and James as well – and what perhaps could be going on in the future. That’s Thursday on BBC Radio 2.
Clarkson’s contract was not renewed by the BBC following that infamous “fracas” with producer Oisin Tymon – a subject that will no doubt come up during this interview.
The 55-year-old was due to guest host an episode of Have I Got News For You in April but later pulled out of the appearance.
Clarkson will rejoin his former Top Gear colleagues Richard Hammond and James May for a live tour later this year.
This one will be a must-listen!
