Jeremy Clarkson said that being dropped from Top Gear was “my own silly fault.”
The presenter spoke to BBC after losing his job in March after attacking a producer. “I have been at the BBC for 27 years,” he said. “When you emerge after 27 years, you find the world is changed. When you learn how the world works, you can start to work out what to do. In the meantime I’m getting really good at tennis. My forehand has improved immeasurably.”
Top Gear, a BBC car show, is watched by 350 million viewers worldwide according to BBC. The BBC will relaunch the show with new presenters. Meanwhile, Clarkson is beginning a “badly organized world tour” this week with his former Top Gear co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May.
