‘Top Gear’ Producer Won’t Press Charges Against Jeremy Clarkson

5 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jeremy Clarkson may be out of a job, but at least he won’t face criminal charges. At least, not if “Top Gear” producer Oison Tymon — who Clarkson reportedly physically attacked during an altercation earlier this month — has anything to say about it. Tymon — whose run-in with “Top Gear” host Clarkson led to Clarkson’s firing from the BBC show this week — has chosen not to press charges against Clarkson, Tymon’s attorney said Friday. “Mr. Tymon has informed the police that he doesn’t want to press charges,” the producer’s attorney, Paul Daniels, said in a statement. “The events of. »

8 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It is truly the end of a television golden era - Dermot O'Leary is leaving The X Factor after seven years as host.

Forget about that Clarkson bloke off Top Gear, we're truly in tears over the thought of never seeing Dermot strut across the X Factor stage again.

Dermot O'Leary to leave X Factor: Here are the best Twitter reactions

While his affable presenting style and an ability to string out a contestant elimination as long as humanly possible will be missed, we're even more distraught that we'll never get to see another of his classic Dermot Dances.

In celebration of the elegant dance moves that put Anton du Beke to shame, Digital Spy takes a look back at seven classic Dermot Dances below:

1. Gangnam Style

We're not going to sugarcoat this for you. Dermot once did the 'Gangnam Style' dance in glorious fashion! The impact of the »

‘Top Gear’ Producer Will Not Press Charges Against Jeremy Clarkson

10 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — “Top Gear” producer Oisin Tymon will not press charges against the show’s presenter Jeremy Clarkson for the alleged assault that led to Clarkson’s dismissal from the BBC show.

North Yorkshire police, who have been investigating the incident, said it would take Tymon’s views “into account” but would continue to interview witnesses.

In a statement, Tymon’s lawyer Paul Daniels said: “Mr. Tymon has informed the police that he doesn’t want to press charges. The events of the last few weeks have been extremely unpleasant for everyone involved. The matter has taken a great toll on Oisin, his family and his friends.”

Tymon’s view was that “all parties should now be allowed to move on,” Daniels said.

“The BBC have, in his view, taken action with a view to addressing the issues at hand,” Daniels said. “Mr. Tymon just wishes to return now to the »

Top Gear: 'Jeremy Clarkson is a big, big hole to fill'

12 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Top Gear has released a statement following the news of Jeremy Clarkson's sacking.

The programme's web team said that the presenter's exit represented "a big, big hole to fill", but made clear that the BBC will "work to renew Top Gear TV for 2016".

The statement reads: "None of us has found the past month easy, and we know some of you suspect this spells the end for Top Gear.
 It doesn't.

"[Tony Hall's] statement confirmed that the BBC will work to renew Top Gear TV for 2016, and of course we'll bring you any news on that front as soon as we have it."

The statement continued to discuss the "incalculable contribution of [Clarkson] to making Top Gear what it is".

"He's a big, big hole to fill, and the team you've trusted to make the world's greatest motoring show will be figuring out over the coming months exactly how to do that. »

Should Guy Martin take over at Top Gear?

12 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The part-time presenter could bring boyish humility, insane bravery, and even women to the mix of the motoring show. It could just work

Jeremy Clarkson is finally gone but his executioner, BBC director-general Tony Hall, has promised to continue Top Gear in 2016. With early front-runner Chris Evans having ruled himself out as a replacement host, bookies are instead backing as favourite a man most international Top Gear fans won’t have heard of: Guy Martin.

Martin is certainly a surprising choice. His charming, thrilling series for Channel 4 – including Speed, where he set out to break unusual speed records, and How Britain Worked, his hands-on guide to the engineering marvels of the Industrial Revolution – have been labours of love by a part-time amateur. To take over one of the biggest shows on TV, Martin would have to ditch his day job fixing trucks, not to mention his great passion as »

15 hours ago | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Jeremy Clarkson has urged his fans not to blame the producer he's alleged to have punched for him being axed from 'Top Gear'. The 54-year-old presenter learned earlier this week that he will not have his contract for the BBC motoring show renewed at the end of the month after he was investigated for launching a verbal and physical attack on Oisin Tymon over a platter of cold meat. And he's now spoken out to ask his supporters to stop sending death threats to the producer ''because none of this was his fault''. He's reported by the Daily Mirror newspaper as »

Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon won't press charges against Jeremy Clarkson

15 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon has decided not to press charges against Jeremy Clarkson.

A BBC report stated earlier this week that Tymon took himself to hospital after he was subjected to a 30-second assault by Clarkson, causing bleeding and swelling to his lip. Tymon also received verbal abuse, including threats to fire him, during the fracas.

Tymon has since told police that he does not want to take the case any further.

His lawyer Paul Daniels issued a statement, saying: "Mr Tymon has informed the police that he doesn't want to press charges.

"The events of the last few weeks have been extremely unpleasant for everyone involved. The matter has taken a great toll on Oisin, his family and his friends.

"Quite simply, Mr Tymon just wishes to return now to the job at the BBC he loves, as soon as possible. Further, the BBC have, in his view, »

Can Top Gear Survive Without Jeremy Clarkson?

17 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's the biggest pop-culture news story in every country except for the one that publishes this website: Jeremy Clarkson was let go from Top Gear this week! Clarkson, if you're unfamiliar, had been the lead presenter of the BBC2 car show since its relaunch in 2003; Top Gear, if you're more unfamiliar, is one of the most popular television shows in the world: one part travelogue, one part reality competition, and one part chat show. Like Manchester United, it's become one of those global brands of "Britishness," and Clarkson was its Wayne Rooney — a potato-faced brute who just so happened to be incredibly good at his job. In Britain, where grumpy old men still inspire a widespread affection they've mostly lost here, Clarkson is a major cultural force, expounding upon his likes (fast cars) and dislikes (everything else, with a special focus on public transit and foreigners) in newspaper »

Outrage Watch Winter Roundup: From Beyonce to 'Frozen,' the 13 most overblown controversies

26 March 2015 6:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Since I started compiling Outrage Watch -- HitFix's "(almost) daily rundown of all the thing folks are peeved about in entertainment" -- I've never been faced with a shortage of things to write about. There's a lot of anger out there! At times so much that it can feel overwhelming. Other times, I just have to laugh at the sheer inanity of the things people manage to work themselves up over. Of the stories I highlight, I would say a good 75 percent represent examples of righteous outrage -- i.e. scorn directed at legitimate targets. And the other 25? The phrase "pick your battles" comes to mind here, and indeed, sometimes it seems the level of anger is blown out of all proportion to the target in question. As we look back on the winter of 2015, below you can find my roundup of 13 of the wackiest, most overblown controversies of the year so far. »

Zayn Malik Crushes Jeremy Clarkson in Battle for Twitter Dominance

26 March 2015 4:29 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jeremy Clarkson and Zayn Malik both had rough days on Wednesday. “Top Gear” host Clarkson was fired by the BBC after getting into an altercation with a producer of the show. And Malik bid an emotional farewell to One Direction, exiting the boy band after opting out of the group’s tour last week. But if social media relevance is at all important to Clarkson, he has an extra reason to be glum. Twitter data from Wednesday indicates that Malik’s 1D departure completely dominated Clarkson’s ouster on the social networking service. Also Read: One Direction’s Liam Payne »

'Was Jeremy Clarkson trouble from the start? He sure was'

26 March 2015 6:03 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Former BBC Top Gear editor Tom Ross on how he gave the controversial presenter his first break – and whether the show can survive without the star

It is all my fault! Someone from the BBC has to step forward and take the blame for all the Clarkson headlines of the last few weeks and months. I am that person. Centuries ago in media terms I gave Jeremy Clarkson his break into television and first offered him the chance to be one of the presenters – albeit a junior one – on Top Gear. I certainly never expected Jeremy to become the worldwide phenomenon that he is today.

I should point out at the start that in 1987 – contrary to popular belief today – the original format of the programme already had more than 5 million viewers, and rising, and was often the top-rated show on BBC2. Those who say the show cannot survive without Jeremy conveniently forget that. »

Jeremy Paxman begins his post-bbc career in the Battle for Number 10

26 March 2015 5:12 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Paxo takes on politicians again in tonight’s C4/Sky News election interviews with David Cameron and Ed Miliband. There can be few TV programmes on which so much has rested – for the questioner as much as the questioned

Just a day after one of TV’s most famous presenters begins to contemplate a career without the BBC, another begins his post-corporation career. Thursday night’s election special, Cameron and Miliband: The Battle for Number 10 (Channel 4/Sky News, 9pm), will see Jeremy Paxman interview the two contenders to be prime minister.

Paxman is a big, vivid beast of broadcasting, without whom the screens have felt duller and safer. Although Jeremy Clarkson was forced to leave the BBC while Paxman chose to go, the Top Gear presenter’s fans feel the same about him.

Jeremy Clarkson Could Return to BBC, According to Network Topper

26 March 2015 4:55 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — The BBC has not ruled out a return for Jeremy Clarkson, who was sacked as the presenter of hit auto show “Top Gear” yesterday.

Speaking on the BBC’s “Newsnight,” the broadcaster’s creative director Alan Yentob said he could not rule out Clarkson working again for the network at some point.

“Of course I wouldn’t rule that out, but that’s not for now,” he said.

Yentob added that the show’s future was now in the hands of Kim Shillinglaw, the head of BBC Two, the channel on which the show airs, and the show’s exec producer, Andy Wilman.

“The question of what happens next for ‘Top Gear’ is a conversation which must go on between the controller of BBC Two Kim Shillinglaw, between Andy, and the team,” Yentob said.

For Clarkson, his troubles are far from over. The police have started their own investigation »
