However a spokesman for Stuttgart Airport disputed Clarkson’s version of events and said the host had missed several calls for his flight and that the employee in question is Spanish, not Argentinian.

The presenters were informed of Evans' departure while they were shooting 'The Grand Tour' in Italy this week.
Former ‘Top Gear’ presenters Jeremy Clarkson and James May are said to be rather pleased that the beleaguered Chris Evans announced his departure from the re-vamped BBC show earlier this week, with the latter saying he was “very chuffed” at Evans’ failure.
May and Clarkson, along with co-presenter Richard Hammond, have been filming an episode of their upcoming Amazon Prime show ‘The Grand Tour’ in the northern Italian city this week. On Monday, Evans resigned as presenter of the new ‘Top Gear’ after it flopped in the ratings, and the two ex-presenters are reportedly having a laugh about it when told.

Following last month’s announcement that their show ‘The Grand Tour’ would be kicking off in the South African city of Johannesburg, Amazon Prime has announced that the programme would be filming in the UK at some point.

Clarkson's new show with Richard Hammond and James May will be called 'The Grand Tour'.
On Wednesday afternoon (May 11th), Clarkson wrote on Twitter: “Start the smoke. We have a name”. The title was then revealed, apparently a reference to their intention to host each episode in a different city across the world and the copious number of filming locations already used - including northern Africa, Barbados, Portugal and London.
“So, the Grand Tour (GT for short) will come from a tent, which we will put up in a different location every week. Your town?” another tweet read soon afterwards.
Clarkson, May and Hammond still haven't found a title for their upcoming motoring show.
Jeremy Clarkson has revealed he's spent thousands of pounds consulting lawyers while trying to come up with a name for his new Amazon Prime series and he’s still no closer to finding a title. Writing in his column for the Sunday Times, Clarkson said most of his suggestions have been ruled out by legal advisors who say they have already been trademarked.

“I spend at least six hours a day in my office — which is insured and smoke-free and resplendent with potted plants — sucking creatively on a corporate Biro as I wait for the daily 3pm ‘Anything yet?’ phone call from Amazon in Los Angeles,” he wrote.

The 80s were not kind to the three presenters.
Jeremy Clarkson has posted an epic throwback picture, showing just how much he and co-presenters James May and Richard Hammond have changed over the past few decades. The trio, who are still working on a name for their upcoming Amazon Prime show, sported some dodgy haircuts and made some questionable fashion choices back in the 80s, but fans can decide which one came out looking the worst.

The trio are struggling to name their new show in their first promo video.
Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond have released their first promo video for their new Amazon Prime show, which still doesn't have a name. In the video the trio are seen trying desperately to brainstorm a title, so they can stop calling it ‘Currently Unnamed TV Show’.
The former ‘Top Gear’ presenters are having trouble naming their new TV show.
Filmed ‘somewhere in London’ the promo shows the three presenters sitting together and offering up some ideas for what the show could be titled. "It's been months - we still have no name. Well how long can we keep calling it 'currently unnamed TV show’?" Clarkson says.
Clarkson described it as ‘the most dangerous stunt I've ever attempted’, but some fans don’t believe him.
Jeremy Clarkson took to twitter on Friday (April 1st) to share a shocking image of his blackened and bloodied face, after filming a dangerous new stunt for his upcoming Amazon Prime series.

The new series of ‘Top Gear’ has come under criticism already, thanks to a stunt near the Cenotaph in London.
New ‘Top Gear’ presenter Chris Evans has hit out at the show’s former hosts, Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, labelling them ‘Zippy, Bungle and George’. Evans did not say which of the former hosts was each ‘Rainbow’ character, but it seems the battle lines have been drawn between Evans' 'Top Gear' and the trio's new Amazon show.

Writing in his Mail on Sunday column Evans said: “Today I will be mostly on my travels again, this time going to Venice with That Car Show,” (via The Daily Star). "Good title, don’t you think? For a car show.”
£4.5 million per episode must be able to buy a LOT of old cars.
Fans of Jeremy Clarkson’s reign on ‘Top Gear’ can be assured that the new Amazon Prime show will be as excessively silly as ever, after the presenter posted photographic evidence of a car wreck he was involved in during filming in Barbados.
The disgraced former BBC presenter, who was sacked after the legendary ‘fracas’ with a producer which occurred almost exactly a year ago on the last series of ‘Top Gear’, admitted that he wrote off one of the cars he was driving while shooting the new big-budget Amazon Prime series on the Caribbean island with trusty colleagues Richard Hammond and James May.
The trio are in talks with the streaming service, with one source claiming the new show might be called 'House of Cars' - nice.
Jeremy Clarkson could be returning to screens alongside his former ‘Top Gear’ pals Richard Hammond and James May. The trio are reported to be in talks with Netflix to launch a new car-based show in the wake of Clarkson’s exile from the BBC.
According to the Daily Mirror, one name being considered for the revamped show is ‘House of Cars’, an explicit and cheeky reference to the success of Kevin Spacey’s original political drama ‘House of Cards’ which found a home on the streaming service. An insider told the British paper “If it goes ahead, they're planning to call it ‘House of Cars’, which is just genius.”

Clarkson was suspended from ‘Top Gear’ earlier this month, after a "fracas" involving one of the show’s producers.
Suspended ‘Top Gear’ host Jeremy Clarkson has said he believes “protest never works”, despite a petition calling for him to be reinstated by the BBC reaching one million signatures. Clarkson made the comments in his weekly column for British newspaper The Sun, just days after launching into a foul mouthed rant against the BBC.

"The simple truth of the matter is this: Protest never works. Because we are all plankton. And the world is run by whales,” Clarkson wrote. “Oh, you can be a big and important plankton but that doesn't make a jot of difference if a whale has decided to eat you up.”
Clarkson was suspended by the BBC on March 10th after a “fracas” involving one of the show’s producers.
James May and Richard Hammond are said to be refusing to film another episode of ‘Top Gear’ without their currently suspended co-host Jeremy Clarkson.

According to The Mirror the two presenters have turned down filming any more episodes of the motoring series which would feature mainly recorded segments with some of footage of Hammond and May in the studio.
Sheeran is the first guest of the new series of 'Top Gear', and apparently ran the car off the track on a number of occasions.
He may have achieved total mastery of the pop world, but Ed Sheeran demonstrated this week that his skills on the road leave quite a lot to be desired. According to BBC's Newsbeat, the star crashed ‘Top Gear’’s ‘Reasonably Priced Car’ during filming of a regular segment of the popular show, whose new episode is due to be broadcast this weekend.
The singer, whose second album X was the biggest-seller of 2014 in the UK, does not hold a driving license and had apparently never driven a car before, so it’s hardly surprising that the red Vauxhall Astra left the track and entered the grass on a number of occasions.

Four celebs drive from Jon O'Groats to Land's End in a pink Rolls Royce, for charity.
Gary Barlow and Chris Evans make an unlikely driving team as they travel up and down the country in a pink Rolls Royce in a bid to raise £1 million for Breast Cancer Care. They are joined by James May, the Top Gear presenter and Brian Cox, the TV science bod. The four celebrities are driving from Land’s End to John O’Groats to raise £1 million for Breast Cancer Care.
The FAB1 Million Challenge kicked off this morning, with the celebs heading off in the Rolls Royce, after Chris Evans finished his TV show. They’re expecting to finish in Scotland at about 4am on Friday morning (April 19, 2013) according to the Metro and they’ll be stopping off in Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and Glasgow. The Take That singer, Gary Barlow, said: “If we can raise £1million it will be amazing. The car is incredible. I can’t wait to drive it, I’ve been designated as the tour chef and I’m going to dig my camping stove out, give it a dust-off and bring some food with me. I’m hoping along the way we get lots of support from the country.”
The fundraising idea was thought up by Chris Evans, who explained that they plan to use the car after the trip to continue raising money for the charity, by making it available to hire. “FAB1 Million aims to raise a million pounds for breast cancer, it’s as simple as that,” explained the radio DJ. “You can hire the most famous Rolls Royce in the world as the icing on the cake to whatever special event you are attending, knowing that you are donating to a very worthy cause in the process. It’s a win-win situation.”
Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond have signed a new deal, ensuring Top Gear’s future for the next three years. The deal is likely to involve a huge windfall for Clarkson in particular, with BBC Worldwide now taking full control of his lucrative company ‘Bedder 6’
Clarkson has become the highest paid BBC star, earning over £3 million in the year to March 2012 – reports The Guardian – and his company Bedder 6 made £15.2 million in pre-tax profits in the year to March 2011. The firm generated income from Top Gear live shows, DVDs and international promotion of the brand. The business is worth anywhere between £50 million and £100 million, though the details of the BBC’s takeover are unknown. Under the new Top Gear deal, May and Hammond will get a share of the show’s commercial revenue in return for promoting the show around the world – essentially, making them even richer. In July of this year, it emerged that Clarkson’s income from Top Gear rose from £900,000 to nearly £3 million in the year.
Of the new deal, a BBC Worldwide spokesman said, “BBC Worldwide has agreed new commercial deals with Jeremy, James, Richard and Andy to secure Top Gear's international future for another three years.”
