Jeremy Clarkson is set to make his first appearance on the BBC since being dropped as a Top Gear presenter.
DJ Chris Evans will interview Clarkson on his breakfast radio show on BBC Radio 2 this Thursday 21 May, the first time the former Top Gear man has appeared on the BBC since the “physical altercation” with producer Oisin Tymon in March.
Evans announced the news on air this morning, saying, “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 was scheduled to host BBC2’s Have I Got News For You in April, but later pulled out of the appearance. Since then, Clarkson and his presenting colleagues Hammond and May (who have both announced they are leaving Top Gear) have been preparing for the latest leg of their live tour.
