Rumors are circulating that the BBC will fire Clarkson tomorrow.  The British press, not known for being right about most things, is the source so take it for what you will, but it appears that an era is over.  Its a show that also makes an estimated $60 million Euros for the BBC, so this is a tough loss for everyone.

Time for a new job: Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has been sacked.

Top Gear is expected to continue on the BBC despite the corporation's decision to sack star presenter Jeremy Clarkson, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

Lord Hall, the director-general of the BBC, is expected to announce on Wednesday (NZ time) that Clarkson will be axed from the show after an internal investigation concluded he did assault producer, Oisin Tymon.

Despite the fact Clarkson's departure is unlikely to go down well with Top Gear's loyal army of fans, BBC bosses are determined the show must go on.

According to well-placed sources, senior BBC executives are hoping that Chris Evans, the Radio 2 Breakfast Show host and self-confessed "petrol-head", will agree to take over.
