Jeremy Clarkson was set to return to the BBC in two weeks to host an episode of How I Got News For You, however it's emerged today that the former Top Gear has decided to pull out. It probably is too soon in fairness.

A producer for the comedy quiz show said; "On reflection, Jeremy Clarkson has decided not to host Have I Got News for You. We fully expect him to resume his hosting duties later in the year."

Paul Merton and Ian Hislop will be ragin' they won't get to rip it out of him, but no doubt they will save their material for when he does eventually step back into the hot seat.
