So we all know about the “fracas” between Jeremy Clarkson and one of the producers; if you haven’t, get from under your rock and read this. Well, now it turns out that with the massive support for Clarkson from viewers, readers and even his colleagues Richard Hammond and James May; the BBC has folded and decided to offer Jeremy his previous role back.
Now Clarkson is probably one of the most controversial presenters on TV today, possibly in the same sort of category as Russel Brand and Jonathan Ross. Well, the BBC has thought of this and gave him a rather strict “terms and conditions” page to the new contract, this is basically giving Clarkson a “minder”.
“I think that people do see a way to resolve this, and that is by putting someone strong in to manage the show and manage Clarkson. He is a brilliant broadcaster, everyone can see that.”
So could this be in the form of another presenter/ bodyguard/ child minder? Maybe before everything he says, he has to whisper it into this person’s ear and have the ‘nod’ before he can say anything, or maybe they can no longer record in front of a live audience, or even do shows like Top Gear Live?
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think Clarkson should return to Top Gear? Are the BBC being too soft? Let us know in the comments section.
