Jeremy Clarkson is a lovable rogue of a broadcaster famed for voicing his opinions on the phenomenally successful car show Top Gear. Having initially trained as a journalist with the Rotherham Advertiser, Jeremy combined his writing skills with an interest in cars and formed the Motoring Press Agency. He still regularly writes for The Sunday Times and The Sun.
His opinionated but humorous tongue-in-cheek writing and presenting style has often generated much public reaction to his viewpoints. His actions both privately and as a Top Gear presenter have also sometimes resulted in criticism from the media, politicians, pressure groups and the public.
Along with co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May, Jeremy rose to public prominence on Top Gear, the most watched TV show on BBC Two which is shown in over 100 countries worldwide. In 2007, Clarkson and co-presenter James May were the first people to reach the magnetic North Pole in a car, chronicled in a Top Gear Polar Special. While making the 12th series of Top Gear he sustained minor injuries to his legs, back and hand in an intentional high-speed head-on collision with a brick wall.
Jeremy has hosted a number of TV programmes including Star Cars, Motorworld, and Extreme Machines, which took him out of cars and into some seriously big toys. From 1998 to 2000 he hosted his own chat show titled Clarkson. He has guest presented Have I Got News For You and explored his roots in Who Do You Think You Are?. He also co-presented the first series of Robot Wars.
Guest appearances on shows include Room 101, Parkinson, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross and Grumpy Old Men. He has released numerous DVDs and his books include Clarkson on Cars, Born To Be Riled, Planet Dagenham and the number one bestseller, The World According to Clarkson.
Appropriately for someone with an interest in history and engineering he has presented Inventions That Changed The World, and championed Brunel in the quest to identify the Greatest Britons. His film about the Victoria Cross, For Valour, was a powerful essay on the medal for gallantry and the remarkable stories of those to whom it has been awarded.
Clarkson’s new show for Amazon will one of the most expensive British TV productions ever commissioned. Once again Clarkson will be working with Richard Hammond and James May, as well as former Top Gear executive producer Andy Wilman, when production starts on the show in 2016.
