This week reports suggested that Sue Perkins was set to replace Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear – but the reports were ‘inaccurate’.

Top Gear presenter James May who starred alongside Richard Hammond and Jeremy Clarkson has a message for trolls who sent death threats to Sue.

James said on Twitter: “If you’re one of the people sending death threats to @sueperkins could you please do the world a much bigger favour by killing yourself.”

James then followed up that tweet, saying: “Obviously I don’t actually want people to kill themselves but, really, we don’t want them as fans.”

Sue quit Twitter because of the abuse she was receiving. Sue said: “Guys, post the utterly fabricated story about me and Top Gear, my timeline has been full of blokes wishing me dead…”

“This morning, someone suggested they’d like to see me burn to death.”

Concluding with: “All of which goes to say that I am off Twitter for a bit. Love and peace x”
