JEREMY Clarkson is set to make his BBC comeback just a month after being fired from Top Gear.
BBC chiefs have decided to let the controversial host back on TV, despite dumping him from the incredibly popular BBC2 motoring show in March.
Clarkson will guest host BBC1’s program Have I Got News for You on April 24.
“Jeremy’s contract has not been renewed on Top Gear but he isn’t banned from appearing on the BBC,” a BBC spokesman said.
The 54-year-old has hosted the satirical quiz show on numerous occasions, including an episode in 2008 where he threw a pen at a panellist, cutting his face.
The news comes as sources revealed the BBC is unlikely to broadcast the remaining episodes of Top Gear,despite having enough material to make two final episodes. “There is some great stuff which fans would love — definitely enough for two programs,” a source told Sunday People.
“However, there is a very big elephant in the room, or rather not in the room — namely Jeremy Clarkson. That would leave James May and Richard Hammond — if they decide to continue — back in the studio trying to link into the films.
“There is a feeling that this would look a little odd and is difficult to overcome. Jeremy’s presence in the films, but absence in the studio, is just too difficult to cover.”.. see more
