    Salford may have been a relatively unknown city in Manchester, but that all changed when Zohaib Alam, 15, won a towering 8-ft (2.4m) high bust of none other than Jeremy Clarkson. I know Jeremy Clarkson has got a big head but we said it would fit after we found out the dimensions. It was amazing when we found out that we had won. It’s the first time we’ve won anything.

    The first full trailer for The Grand Tour was released today and the new programme which features the former Top Gear stars is set to be their most thrilling show to date. Presenters Jeremy Clarkson, 56, Richard Hammond, 46, and James May, 53, all left the BBC show last year and started filming the upcoming series on Amazon Prime. The pulsating trailer shares similarities with a Hollywood blockbuster and shows a tank blowing up a car, a tense helicopter chase and Clarkson speeding past on a jet ski. And it seems the trio - who agreed to make the new...

    Top Gear’s audience fell to a new low of two million viewers as the series stalled again in the ratings on Sunday. It also emerged he was facing a police probe following historic accusations of sexual assault. A woman who worked with Evans in the 1990s claims he exposed himself to her and grabbed her breasts. Sources told The Mirror that Evans, 50, was not asked to step down and he will not be replaced in the near future. The newspaper also reported that Top Gear is in pre-production for series 24 and Matt LeBlanc is now the lead presenter....

    Former Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson has given fans a tantalising first look at Amazon Prime's new motoring show after overseas filming began. He and co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May left the BBC earlier this year and signed a "very, very, very expensive" deal to make a car-themed programme with the online streaming service. The 55-year-old outspoken broadcaster had previously insisted "much is already sorted" for the show - after May suggested the stars had got "nowhere", with decisions about content or a name yet to be made. But Clarkson gave little away as he shared a picture with...

    Earlier this year Mr S reported how Jeremy Clarkson got on stage at a glitzy charity auction and told the audience that the BBC were ‘f—ing b—–ds’. Happily, during the expletive-filled rant over his Top Gear suspension he also managed to raise Ł100,000 for the Roundhouse arts charity by offering attendees the chance to join him for his last lap around the Top Gear test track: ‘I’ll drive somebody around in whatever I can get hold of, I’m sacked so it’s probably a Nissan Maestro. But anyway it will be my last ever lap of the Top Gear test...

The 54-year-old said that the “fracas”...

    The BBC just proved that Progressive media serves the tiny elite who think they should run our lives.It’s official: The BBC have fired Jeremy Clarkson, the main presenter and inventor of the modern version of Top Gear. If you don’t yet know what Top Gear is, go look it up. It pretends to be a show about cars, but it’s actually a fascinating series about three crazy personalities doing insane stunts, and (for very good reasons) it’s been for the last 13 years the most popular non-fiction TV show… in the world.Photo by The Times/Gallo Images/Getty ImagesThe craziest thing about...

    Jeremy Clarkson, Bęte Noire, of the left in the UK, may have gone too far this time. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremy_Clarkson It appears that early March 2015, he was involved in an argument with one of the producers of the show 'Top Gear' which he presents, which ended with Clarkson swinging a punch at the producer. Clarkson's co-presenters, James May and Richard Hammond managed to hold Clarkson back. Clarkson appears to have attempted to patch things up with the producer afterwards but to no avail. He then reported the incident himself to the BBC management and wheels began to turn. The BBC suspended...

    Top Gear could have stayed on air without Jeremy Clarkson - but his co-hosts reportedly refused to present the show without him. James May and Richard Hammond were offered the chance to front the motoring show during Clarkson’s suspension, according to a BBC executive. Discussions were held about broadcasting the last three episodes with mainly recorded segments while the two co-stars filmed the studio parts. However the BBC insider told the Mirror that May and Hammond rejected the offer and refused to go on air without their long-time colleague. The source said: "They didn't want to do it without Jeremy...

  • Magazine "Top Gear" Reveals Secrets (Russian Submarine)

    01/13/2015 9:25:12 PM PST · by gandalftb · 18 replies
    Translated from Russian: The magazine apparently organized a photo shoot on the shores of the White Sea for the Mercedes-Benz GL450, a full-size sports utility vehicle, and didn’t realize it had captured the stealthy submarine cruising on the surface of the water in the background. The vessel, nicknamed, “Losharik” after a children’s movie, is part of the Russian navy’s Northern Fleet. The magazine image of Losharika may be the highest-quality open source photo of the boat to date. Filmed nuclear submarine was deep station AC-12 project 10831. The boat is the last of deep-built nuclear power stations, is part of...

    The host of the popular BBC television program "Top Gear" and other members of the crew have fled Argentina after being pelted with rocks by people who believed one of their cars had a license plate alluding to the Falklands War. Officials said a crowd of about 50 people began hurling rocks at the BBC group Thursday as they drove in a caravan under police escort to the Chilean border with Argentina's southernmost province of Tierra del Fuego. Host Jeremy Clarkson and the others were forced to abandon the cars in an area between Tolhuin and Rio Grande. One minor...

    On the day the Jeremy Clarkson "N" word story broke, I was sitting with friends of the same age in their kitchen, trying to remember when it was that the children's choosing rhyme "Eeny meeny minie mo" (or however you spell it: there are myriad variants) transmuted into its politically correct, N-word free modern version. First, I seem to recall, the offending word was changed to "tigger". Then - so that even the memory of the unfortunate rhyme was expunged - it became "tiger." Today, most children who recite the poem probably aren't even aware of its sinister, "racist" past....

    Jeremy Clarkson, the oft-offensive co-host of the long-running BBC car show "Top Gear," has frequently sacrificed his bod and critical sphincter control for the show's various challenges and stunts. Here we see Clarkson behind the wheel of the "smallest car in the world," a fully street-legal vehicle allegedly designed by Clarkson himself. Apart from looking hilarious, there are a variety of downsides to piloting the world's tiniest car, which Clarkson discovers in quick succession.
