Trailer for Harry and Meghan Volume II

Jeremy Clarkson remains the presenter of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? “Right now,” said ITV boss Kevin Lygo, as he slammed Clarkson’s comments about Meghan Markle as “terrible”.

In his commentary, published on Friday (December 16), the 62-year-old wrote that he dreams of the day Markle would have to parade naked across the UK while the crowd chanted ‘shame’ and yelled at them ‘excrement’ threw.

Clarkson claimed that “everyone my age thinks the same way.”

The sun has now removed Clarkson’s comment from its website. “In light of Jeremy Clarkson’s tweet, he asked us to remove last week’s column,” the site reads.

More than 60 cross-party MPs have written that of the sun Editor to demand an apology and “action taken” against Clarkson. The SNP shadow culture minister also called for Clarkson to be banned from television altogether.

Ipso confirmed on Tuesday December 20 that it had received over 17,500 complaints about the presenter’s column, more than the total number it received in 2021.

Not on my behalf, Jeremy Clarkson

FYI Jeremy Clarkson: Not everyone his age thinks the same.

His recent desperate appeal for his rapidly fading star is unacceptable.

It is in keeping with his arrogance that he believes such immature, repugnant, and outdated thoughts are the norm in this age group.

Any hope that he’s part of a dying breed is probably lost. There will always be those who are disgraced by passing popularity, and whose “celebrity” and wealth give them the false belief that they play an important role in society.

I would be grateful if he could keep his disgusting thoughts to himself, writes our reader Jane Penson in the letter The Independent.
