Motor mouth motor presenter finally gets his comeuppance.
Renowned Chelsea fan and Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has been suspended by the BBC for apparently taking a swipe at one of the show’s producers over an argument about his dinner, according to CaughtOffside.

The 54-year-old once said of a visit to Liverpool: “People up there earn less, die more quickly, have fewer jobs and live in houses that are worth the square root of sod all.”
But he has frequently walked a tightrope with his comments before, always managing to get off scot-free, but it seems his antics may now have caught up with him.
A show insider explained the incident by saying: “Jeremy had a massive bust-up with one of the male show producers and he ended up smacking him in the face. Everyone was absolutely stunned.
“Jeremy is an incredibly valuable asset to the BBC. He is Top Gear and the show makes more money than anything else on their roster.
“They have given him countless chances, but when you hit someone, there is no way round it. They had no choice but to suspend him.
“It’s very early at this stage, but the fact no one else has been suspended is very telling.”
Clarkson himself is denying the allegations, and the final three episodes of the Top Gear series will be put on ice pending an internal investigation.
