Clarkson dropped

Top Gear as we know it may be off our screens, but Jeremy Clarkson and ex-Top Gear co-presenters James May and Richard Hammond could return to present another motoring show in the near future, Clarkson has written in his latest Sunday Times column.

The Top Gear main man has also stated that his 'fracas' with a producer on the show followed a number of tough personal circumstances, including a cancer scare where he was found to have a lump on his tongue that he was told to get checked immediately. Other factors putting the presenter under stress included the death of his mother and the breakdown of his marriage.

Writing in his Sunday Times column Clarkson continued: "I felt sick because after I'd lost my home and my mother, I'd thrown myself even more vigorously into my job and now, idiotically, I'd managed to lose that too," reports Car Throttle.

All is not lost, however, as Clarkson is now working to establish a new form of programme. Talking about life post Top Gear he wrote: "The hole it's left behind seems to stretch for eternity...And I've somehow got to fill it."

Despite the uncertainty of how to follow the massive success of the new Top Gear format, Clarkson is determined to create a new show for the brand's many fans: "I have made a decision. I have lost my baby but I shall create another. I don't know who the other parent will be or what the baby will be like, but I cannot sit around any more organising my photograph albums."

We imagine that a certain Mr May and Mr Hammond may just be involved in this new creation...
