Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson had a final dig at the BBC ahead of his final appearance on the show last night.

Clarkson tweeted: "Strange that BBC News is talking down the last Top Gear. Do they not want big ratings for some reason?"

Co-host Richard Hammond replied asking: "Oh, is it on? Always liked that."

The third of the presenting trio, James May, tweeted that he thought he would instead attend "a pleasant Sunday evening recital by AC/DC".

Clarkson had been vocal about the final show, calling it "cobbled together".

The final instalment was a 75-minute special compiled from footage taken before Clarkson was suspended.
