The fallout from Jeremy Clarkson’s exit from the BBC continues with co-hosts now having made comment.
James May told reporters in a doorstop interview that the incident had been blown out of proportion.
Tellingly, he also indicated that he, Clarkson and Hammond were “a package” and that Top Gear had previously featured other presenters.
Richard Hammond also tweeted that he was “gutted” by the turn of events.
May and Hammond’s contracts are both believed to expire at the end of the month.
Meanwhile a BBC spokesperson told Mumbrella is was evaluating the ramifications for the Top Gear Live event scheduled for Sydney next month.
“We are working through the implications of today’s announcement with our partner Brand Events and will make a statement on the Top Gear Festival as soon as possible.”
