We haven't the foggiest why Jezza would wonder why we'd think he and Top Gear wouldn't be back this next year. Could it have had something to do with him saying last week in his column for The Sun: ""It won't be." Now he's saying:
"Everyone seems to think the programme is finished or that I've left. Well, sorry to disappoint you all but it isn't and I haven't. Top Gear... will be back in the autumn."
Yes, no clue why we'd think that. But whatevs, it's back and that's the fact, jack. [Hat tip to everyone and their mother!]
