Jeremy Clarkson Seeks Redemption With 'Top Gear' Producer Apology and Pay Off

By Gary Cutlack on at

That man who used to be on the proper telly but is now a walking advert for whatever crap Amazon's selling this week is back in the headlines, with Jeremy Clarkson rewinding time to offer a full apology to his former producer over the meat-based fury that ended his BBC career.

Clarkson was speaking at the end of a discrimination case put in place by former Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon, with the professional confounded man saying: "I would like to say sorry, once again, to Oisin Tymon for the incident and its regrettable aftermath. I want to reiterate that none of this was in any way his fault."

The personal injury claim and racial discrimination case against Clarkson and the BBC has now been withdrawn by Tymon, who, according to reports from people in the vicinity of the proceedings, has accepted a financial settlement in excess of £100,000 to drop the charges. Perhaps there's now a chance to dump Evans and get JC back on the team before new Top Gear crashes home in May, now that everyone's kissed, made up, and had a nice sausage sandwich. [BBC, Telegraph]
