Clarkson rubbishes claims of ‘fake’ car finance show

Jeremy Clarkson, hero to many, god to others and annoying old man to few, has come out to defend his beloved Top Gear

Jeremy Clarkson, hero to many, god to others and annoying old man to few, has come out to defend his beloved Top Gear after an insider at the Daily Mail insisted up to 80 percent of the show’s ‘clever’ stuff is performed by a professional driver – and not Clarkson and co.

Clarkson decided to rubbish these car finance claims by saying the show is not fake.

"It is complete rubbish. If I say I drove a Lamborghini and got to 207mph then that's what I did. I was in the car," he said speaking to The Sun.

"I'll challenge whoever says I wasn't doing that to come to the track. I'll stick them in the car and do it again. But they better bring a sick bag."
