Clarkson makes BBC comeback

Since losing his job as co-presenter of Top Gear on 24 April, Jeremy Clarkson is set to make his first appearance on the BBC as the guest host of 'Have I Got News for You'.

"Jeremy's contract has not been renewed on Top Gear but he isn't banned from appearing on the BBC," a spokesman said.

Clarkson has presented the satirical news quiz on numerous occasions, onetime throwing a pen at regular panelist Ian Hislop that left him with a cut on his face.

Following a "fracas" with Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon in a hotel in North Yorkshire, Clarkson was suspended by the BBC on 10 March. The BBC announced on 25 March his contract on Top Gear would not be renewed.

A petition to reinstate the presenter was signed by more than a million fans but BBC director general Tony Hall said "a line has been crossed" and "there cannot be one rule for one and one rule for another".

Following an inquiry into the "fracas", North Yorkshire Police said there was "no need for further action" against Clarkson.
