The outspoken presenter was suspended two weeks ago after he got rather irate – or hangry, as we like to think – when he was served up a cold platter rather than a steak after a day of filming. It’s alleged he hit producer Oisín Tymon during the heated exchange at a hotel in Yorkshire.

More news!

    Now, it’s reported an internal inquiry, which is looking at all the evidence from the ‘fracas’, will take their findings to the Beeb’s top dog, director general Tony Hall next week.

    In a statement the BBC said: “Following last week’s suspension of Jeremy Clarkson, Ken MacQuarrie is now considering the evidence and will report to the director general on his findings next week.

    “Once this has been considered, we will set out any further steps. The BBC will not be offering further commentary until then.”

    It’s understood Jeremy, and Oisín have each given their version of events however it’s still unknown whether any witnesses have been called.

    Earlier it was revealed a petition to bring Jeremy back had almost gained one million signatures. It’s currently the fastest growing petition for two years and right now, it stands at 979,444.

    We’re pretty sure it’ll have topped the million mark by the time the weekend’s out...
