The future of key BBC Two show Top Gear is reportedly in doubt because of a row between producers and its three presenters.

BBC Two has announced a planned one-off summer special, but Jeremy Clarkson responded: “Can I just say, it won’t be [happening].”

The Mirror reports that Clarkson and fellow presenters Richard Hammond and James May are unhappy with the celebrity-oriented development of Top Gear. They want the cars to be the stars.

The BBC says that, as well as the summer special, the next series would screen in the autumn. But Clarkson said on Top Gear’s final episode last week: “We don’t know when we’ll be back.”

The last series was hugely successful, drawing up to eight million viewers per episode.
