Jeremy Clarkson accuses BBC of 'being up itself' and says he'd run it better by not being 'politically correct'

The 58-year-old worked for the corporation until he left Top Gear in 2015 and since then, Jeremy hasn't held back in his criticism of his former employers.

In this week's Radio Times, he hit out again, saying: "If I ran the BBC, it would be better…I’d make programmes for everybody, not just seven people in Islington.

"It’s become so up itself, suffocating the life out of everything with its nonsense need to be politically correct.

"If they’d let everyone relax, and made a show that’s entertaining or interesting or informative or any of the things that the BBC is supposed to be, then we’d be having a different debate about the future of television.

"I had a very happy time at the BBC and I care very much about it.

"I’d be sad if it got knackered by a few unwise Corbynites.”

Jeremy also made a joke about new Top Gear host Paddy McGuinness, pretending to confuse him with IRA leader Martin McGuinness.

Asked if he had heard of the Take Me Out host, who will present the BBC Two show with Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris, Jeremy said: "No. The IRA guy? No idea.”

Over the weekend, Sun columnist Jeremy told Bizarre there was no way he and his Grand Tour co-stars Richard Hammond and James May could return to their former home on the BBC.

He said: “We’re redundant. You couldn’t possibly get an all-male show across unless it was called My Actual Penis.

“If the programme was called Me And My Penis then that would probably have to be hosted by men.

"But since there isn’t a programme called Me And My Penis it’s going to be all women.”
