Reportedly speaking at a charity fundraiser last night, the presenter of the top BBC show said: "I didn't foresee my sacking, but I would like to do one last lap."

Then things went all a bit "Clarkson" as he turned proceedings into an expletive riddled "f**k* fest by adding: "So I'll go down to Surrey and I'll do one last lap of that track before the f*****g b******s sack me. There was an 18 year waiting list to be in the audience of Top Gear, but the BBC has f****d themselves. It was a great show and they've f****d it up, tonight's the night when you have the opportunity."

As it happens, the aforementioned charity fundraiser Clarkson was attending involved him auctioning off a lap around the track - so things can't be that bad if he's still representing the show in that capacity...?

According to The Independent: "It had been stated that Clarkson had been suspended rather than sacked by the BBC after a confrontation with Irish producer Oisin Tymon during filming for the show last month. However, the investigation is ongoing and the BBC will announce the findings next week."

For those unfamiliar with what went down - Jeremy reportedly flew in on a helicopter after filming somewhere in rather a remote location, and engaged himself in a "fracas" with the producer (who reportedly was on the show for a decade) after the only meal available to him was a cold meat and cheese platter.
In other news, here's Jeremy enjoying a cigarette and the company of an Albanian man outside the venue last night.
