Jeremy Clarkson, "Im Sorry For Execution Comments"
Following the news that they've received around 5000 complaints since the program aired live last night (November 30th), the Bbc have issued their own apology, saying "'The One Show' is a live topical programme which often reflects the day's talking points. Usually we get it right, but on this occasion we feel the item wasn't perfectly judged. The Bbc and Jeremy would like to apologise for any offence caused."
For a while today though it looked like the 51 year-old might be keeping quiet, however he too has now said sorry, a statement reading "I didn't for a moment intend these remarks to be taken seriously - as I believe is clear if they're seen in context. If the Bbc and I have caused any offence, I'm quite happy to apologise for it alongside them." The comments have infuriated many, with unionists seeking legal action against Clarkson.
