This Morning presenter Phillip Schofield has said he thinks Jeremy Clarkson has gone too far this time.
The silver-haired star is the latest famous face to wade into the debate about whether the suspended Top Gear presenter should lose his job after being involved in a fracas with a producer.
Phillip admitted to The Sun that Jeremy was “a great character and broadcaster” before adding: “Having said that, he has said things in the past which were unacceptable and has apologised for them.
“But in this case, that’s too far. There is just no excuse for that sort of behaviour.”
Simon is for Clarkson
While Phillip has said he needs to accept fault and leave, music mogul Simon Cowell has just put it down to him “being Jeremy”.
He said: “I like Jeremy. He has said some stupid things and he know that, but he’s apologised. It’s quite obvious the public are behind him. But you know, that’s Jeremy.”
Simon joins Katie Hopkins in defence of Jeremy, who claimed in her Sun column that suspending the presenter is like hanging the queen.
"Deciding to suspend Jeremy Clarkson is a little bit like hanging the Queen," she wrote.
"The nation watches in horror, the culprits look like utter gits and Britain loses a national treasure."
"The BBC is like a distant planey. Alien and out of touch.
"Get Clarkson back on Top Gear, get the show back on air and stop playing who’s got the biggest willy."
