James May 'will not return to Top Gear' without Clarkson For more Latest and Breaking News Headlines SUBSCRIBE to https://www.youtube.com/user/24X7BreakingNEWS Top Gear presenter James May has said he will not return to the BBC show without co-host Jeremy Clarkson, who was dropped from the show last month. "Me and Hammond with a surrogate Jeremy is a non-starter. It has to be the three of us," he told the Guardian. May, who first appeared on Top Gear in 1999, said the show without Clarkson would be a "a bit of a daft idea". According to May's agent, however, the presenter is still in talks with the BBC about his role on the show. "Conversations regarding the future of BBC's Top Gear are ongoing," May's representative told the Press Association. "James continues to be involved in those conversations, however no plans have been 100% confirmed." 'The new Jeremy' Clarkson was suspended and then later axed from the show after he attacked producer Mr Tymon, splitting his lip and verbally abusing him. Clarkson was removed from presenting duties on the motoring show after assaulting producer Oisin Tymon. "I don't think you could carry on with two people and put someone in as the new Jeremy because they are not going to be the new Jeremy," May said. "That would be short-sighted and I don't think it would work. Virtually impossible." May changed his Twitter account to say "former Top Gear presenter" on 25 March, the day it was announced Clarkson's contract would not be renewed. May's own contract, and that of his co-presenter Richard Hammond, expired last month. It raises the possibility of an entirely new presenting line-up for the hit BBC Two show.
