BBC inquiry heard that Jeremy had assaulted producer Oisin Tymon earlier this month which has resulted him getting the sack from the BBC Two motoring show.

BBC director general Tony Hall has confirmed the news in a statement, saying: “It is with great regret that I have told Jeremy Clarkson today that the BBC will not be renewing his contract,

“It is not a decision I have taken lightly. I have done so only after a very careful consideration of the facts and after personally meeting both Jeremy and Oisin Tymon.”

Over a million people signed a petition calling for Clarkson’s immediate reinstatement to Top Gear, but even that wasn’t enough to bring him back.

It hasn’t been confirmed whether James May and Richard Hammond will remain as hosts, as their contracts run out next week too.

Radio 2 presenter Chris Evans has also denied reports that he’s replacing Clarkson on Top Gear.
