Top Gear fans around the world have been dealt a blow – after it was announced that Jeremy Clarkson was suspended form the show over a food fight.

According to the Daily Mail, Clarkson apparently threw a punch at his producer, Oisin Tymon, after his meal was not served in time.

A source told the Daily Mirror: “He just saw red and hit the assistant producer, who he blamed for not having organised the food. He snapped.”

Since the suspension, Top Gear fans have started a “Bring Back Clarkson” petition which has already got 250,000 signatures.

The British star, who also has a wide following online in the States, was pictured at his local pub after the announcement, and commented: “I’m having a nice cold pint and waiting for this to blow over”.

We gather by his calmness that he had probably eaten some food by that time, but a future suggestion for the BBC would be to use microwave meals: they’re done in five minutes AND they prevent violence!
