I'm the first to admit that "Top Gear" took off stratospherically when Clarkson and his chums shook up the format and turned it into a worldwide ratings winner.
I have even been known to watch it on the odd occasion, although I quickly tire of the arrogance and smugness of the trio of "blokes" as they show off in a shed in front of a group of admirers whose combined annual income probably doesn't even come near what Jeremy trousers weekly. His superstar status has gradually made him feel invincible and untouchable, thinking he can publicly call Gordon Brown a "one eyed Scottish Git" and much worse within the protection of his fawning admirers. Like his other foot-faults, he believes that turning on the charm for a brief moment cancels everything out and he can get back to shovelling the money into his bank accounts.
Well, he may have taken much more of a body blow this week from the great Steve Coogan. Here's a taster talking about Richard Hammond:
