Jeremy Clarkson: Car show coming soon!

Jeremy Clarkson continued to rile up fans while on stage in Australia.

The former Top Gear presenter and his colleagues Richard Hammond and James May left the BBC in March and subsequently had to rename their live show, removing any mention of the car programme.

Now called Clarkson, Hammond & May Live, the trio put on a show in Australia at the weekend. There, they promised 14,000 fans that they will be back on their screens in some capacity.

"There will be a car show on the internet or in your house,” Jeremy said.

To hammer home the point, a video of the three stars pretending to present a new show was then played to the audience.

In it, Jeremy deadpans he’s “too shy” for TV, to which James responds: "Maybe you're better suited at being the producer... or a diplomat."

Top Gear often proved controversial when the three men presented it, with comments and stunts pushing the boundaries.

"For legal reasons, nothing we have ever done together has ever happened," Jeremy joked. "Our lawyers tell us that, for legal reasons, we have never met."

The former Top Gear trio have been stirring things up Down Under, last week hinting they may have made a deal with Netflix. While on stage in Perth, they also teased they could be taking their show to America.

For now, all that’s certain is they won’t be returning to Top Gear for at least three years, as Chris Evans has signed a contract as the new presenter of the BBC show.
