Jeremy Clarkson Confirms No Top Gear Until 2013, Blames 'Fat People Singing'

Jeremy Clarkson just confirmed our report about there being no more Top Gear until 2013 is true, although the reason is not the Olympics. It's Simon Cowell.

Yesterday, we reported that the Jezza let slip on a South African radio show that they weren't going to be showing any Top Gear in the fall, meaning we'd have to wait until January to get our fix.

People threatened to jump off things. Others tried to find some way to deny it. Denial was strong with fans of the British motoring show, but in typical Clarkson fashion he took to his very real Twitter account to say "it's true."

The "fat people singing" is probably a cruel reference to Susan Boyle and Cowell's show Britain's Got Talent. Or one of the like 60 other shows Cowell produces.

Oh Jezza, never change.
