Jeremy Clarkson's final scenes in Top Gear will be screened later this year, according to the boss of BBC2.

Kim Shillinglaw said the scenes filmed before Clarkson was suspended for his attack on Oisin Tymon were likely to air this summer.

She said: "There is no way I would want the available material not to be seen by viewers."

Asked about drafting in a woman to replace him, she said: "It's an open book on that".

"We'll definitely look at some women but it's not a driving priority," she added.
