Jeremy Clarkson returns to BBC with Chris Evans

Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson will give his first radio interview since leaving the BBC in March to BBC Radio 2’s Chris Evans Breakfast Show this week.

Clarkson was sacked by the corporation after the infamous fracas with a producer on the TV show while filming in North Yorkshire. He’s reported to be planning a return with former colleagues Richard Hammond and James May on a different TV channel.

Announcing the news on his breakfast show this morning that Jeremy would be appearing on Thursday, Chris Evans said: “Here to wave off the 10 who are going to Monaco (Children in Need fundraising event)…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.”

The news prompted reaction from some listeners on Twitter, many of whom weren’t happy with Clarkson’s planned appearance on Radio 2:
