Jeremy Clarkson on Leaving Top Gear : “It Was My Own Silly Fault”


Maybe he’s just trying to win back the public – but Jeremy has finally said that being forced to leave ‘Top Gear’ after he assaulted a producer was completely his own fault (obviously!). Jeremy says he is sad that he has lost his job because he was very passionate about everything he did:

“I was very sad, it was my own silly fault so I could hardly complain. I was at the BBC for 27 years, and on the current incarnation for 12. It was very much my baby, I absolutely adored it, I worked all through the night and paid attention to every tiny bit and then suddenly you are not asked to do that any more. You feel that there is a big hole that needs to be filled.”

Speaking on if he has been working on another car show with another network or possibly Netflix, Jeremy comments that there is currently nothing in the works and he isn’t interested in jumping into another project that quickly:

“No, I haven’t had a single meeting. I’ve just been listening.On the telephone or video conferencing. I have absolutely no idea [what’s next].” It was very sudden [leaving Top Gear] you’d be a fool to just jump into something. You need to look at what’s out there and what is the best thing to do.”

Jeremy says that losing his job has been a shock because he has to rediscover how things work now:

“I was at the BBC for 27 years. You emerge and find the world has changed and you have to find out how the world works, which is what I have been doing.”
