The BBC are said to have offered the pair a mega money deal to stay as ‘Top Gear’ presenters.
Richard Hammond and James May could soon become the highest paid stars at the BBC, if they accept a deal worth £4.6million each to stay on as hosts of 'Top Gear' for two more series.

But the corporation isn’t intending to replace Jeremy Clarkson anytime soon. The BBC is said to be considering modeling the new series of the show on ‘Have I Got News For You’ or ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’, which saw a guest host every episode rather than a permanent presenter.
The duo are reported to have received seven figure per-annum offers to stay on and present 'Top Gear' with a weekly "guest presenter".
In contrast to many reports that have been doing the rounds over the past few weeks, ‘Top Gear’ presenters James May and Richard Hammond might not be leaving the BBC after all. In fact, it was reported today that the duo may stay with corporation to front a re-vamped version of the show alongside a weekly “guest presenter”.
The pair had been widely believed to have effectively followed Jeremy Clarkson out of the door, following his sacking in March. However, the Independent’s Matthew Norman reported on Monday (June 1st) that May and Hammond had been offered £1 million-per-year deals by the BBC to stay in their posts.

Clarkson also used Twitter to reassure a fan that television screens hadn't seen the last of him yet.
Jeremy Clarkson took to Twitter to agree with another user that he is “fed up” of the deluge of media speculation around his future, ever since he was sacked from BBC’s ‘Top Gear’ after his notorious “fracas” with producer Oisin Tymon.
Twitter user Sienna Sapphire seemingly wondered out loud: “Anyone else sick of hearing about Jeremy Clarkson? Nothing particularly against him, but why is his every move / word still in the news?” She was probably a bit surprised to find that, this morning, Clarkson had replied “I do like me but even I'm fed up with it.”

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.

Boyle didn't spare much when laying into Clarkson
Jeremy Clarkson doesn't stop being racist, and people don't stop hating him
He said that Clarkson “comes from a very bad place and the reason he's tolerated is that he's recognised by people in power … in fact he's a friend of [David] Cameron's,” according to the The Guardian. He added: “He's in there like a f***ing growth and he should be removed because he's horrible. Sack him because he's a cultural tumour.”

The BBC and Clarkson were criticised by Ofcom - but will anyone face consequences?
The most pointless announcement in the history of the Internet was made yesterday when Ofcom said Jeremy Clarkson had purposely used a racist epithet to describe another human being. Everyone knows the Top Gear presenter says those things.

Despite angry calls for Clarkson to get the sack, he's getting a new contract
One Google search for “Jeremy Clarkson racist” will throw up 917,000 results. And there’s a reason for that.

But it’s okay; he didn’t mean to say the n-word. He tried not to say it, but he just couldn’t stop it sounding like he maybe didn’t not say it. Sort of. The BBC doesn’t care either, reportedly handing him a new contract worth loads of money that’ll keep him hosting Top Gear with his mates, who also like to say incredibly racist things and get away with it, too.

How is this happening?
The BBC seems to have an inexplicable soft spot for Jeremy Clarkson, the man many consider to be guilty of multiple racist remarks.

"Errrrm" - Jeremy Clarkson, 2014
The new deal, according to The Sunday People’s source, is “being worked on right now” and would keep Clarkson in the driving seat at Top Gear until 2018. “There is no question of Jeremy’s deal not being renewed,” added this source. “The top executives want him signed up as soon as possible. We are all very excited that Top Gear as we know it will be with us for three more years from 2015.”

A look at Clarkson's iffy history with racism
You have to be very careful when talking about stars and their alleged racism. But Jeremy Clarkson has been accused of being racist so many times; one begins to wonder how long the BBC is going to put up with it. The latest has seen the controversial presenter deny using the word “nigger”.

Full disclosure: we thought about starring the word out, but we’re not calling anyone it, and we don’t condone the use of it. By starring the word out, you put it in someone else’s head without actually saying it. So in the interest of clarity, Jeremy Clarkson is accused of saying the word, and denies it on Twitter. His mates are backing him too.

Jeremy Clarkson has been called out for yet another insulting remark, but what other feather ruffling comments has the presenter made in the past?
He’s at it again! Jeremy Clarkson is back to his old offensive tricks, this time he’s been called out for referring to an Asian man as a ‘slope’. During an episode of Clarkson’s successful BBC show Top Gear, the presenter made the joke regarding a bridge in Thailand, as well as a local Asian man who was crossing the bridge.
