Jeremy Clarkson Isn’t Trying To ‘Scupper’ Chris Evans’ Top Gear Recommission
The former Top Gear presenter, who was sacked after a fracas over food, is now producing a new motoring show for Amazon with his co-stars James May and Richard Hammond.
Jeremy spoke about the upcoming new Top Gear at a talk in London, where The Mirror reports him to have said: “What’s very entertaining is that Chris Evans is having a very hard time at the moment as he attempts to put Top Gear back together again.
“It’s been suggested that I am behind it, that I am trying to scupper him.
“But I discovered the other day that every time it gets recommissioned I get paid, so that’s a curious bit of BBC contract but I wish them all the very best.”

He also reflected on what he believes would have happened had there not been a sacking, explaining: “To be honest, I think we would have stayed at the BBC and then the show would have got tired and boring, eventually we would have piloted it into a hillside and that would have been the end.
“At the time it was all tragic, but now we’ve been forced to reinvent ourselves and we’re online, where you can do anything, like f*** a horse, it’s forced all of us to actually concentrate on starting again. Now we’re looking at losing Top Gear as a fantastic thing to happen.”
