ITV could sack Jeremy Clarkson as could Piers Morgan

The care for Clarkson is that ITV previously cut ties with a high-profile name because of Megan Markleof Pier Morgan of the channel have started.

Morgan left the ‘Good Morning Britain’ show in April 2021 after Ofcom received 41,000 complaints, following his comments about not believing Megan Markle‘s story.

This precedent is concerning for Clarkson because the same head of ITV, Caroline McCallstill stands.

And, McCall wasn’t happy with it at all Clarkson‘s column in The Sun about the American.

What did Jeremy Clarkson say about Meghan Markle?

In his column he called Megan Markle being publicly humiliated, in a very awkward reference to a scene from ‘Game of Thrones’.

“I hate her, not as I hate Nicholas Steur or Pink West“I hate her on a cellular level,” he wrote in The Sun.

“At night I can’t sleep as I lie there gritting my teeth and dreaming of the day when she has to parade naked through the streets of every city in Britain to the crowd shouting ‘Shame!’ chants. and threw chunks of feces at her.”

After the recoil, Clarkson apologized and tweeted his regret.

“Oh dear, I’d rather put my foot in it,” his apology began.

“In a column I wrote about Meghan, I made a clumsy reference to a scene in ‘Game of Thrones,’ and it went down the wrong way with a lot of people.

“I am shocked that I have caused so much pain and I will be more careful in the future.”

In another apology, this time on Instagram Clarkson revealed his directors at Amazon and ITV were not happy.

“I was very angry with myself because in all those controversial days on ‘Top Gear’ when I was accused of all sorts of things, it was rarely sexism,” he said on Instagram.

“I was mortified, like everyone else. My phone went crazy. Very close friends were furious. Even my own daughter took to Instagram to sue me.

“The Sun quickly apologized and I tried to explain myself. Yet there were calls for me to be fired and charged with a hate crime.

“More than 60 MPs demanded action. ITV, who called ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire?’ makes, and Amazon, who make the “Farm Show” and the “Grand Tour,” were glowing.

“So I wrote to everyone who worked with me saying I was sorry and on Christmas morning I emailed Harry and Megan in California to also apologize.

“I said I was baffled by what they had said on TV, but the language I had used in my column was disgraceful and I was deeply sorry.”

Will Jeremy Clarkson ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’ present? for next season?

Despite these apologies Clarkson is facing the heat, with Variety reporting that it has already decided not to renew its Amazon shows.

In addition, the Daily Mail has reported that ITV was looking into making cuts Clarkson from “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” prematurely, with the celebrity contracted for the next season of the quiz show.

They have already canceled celebrity special episodes of the show due to what were described as “scheduling issues”, according to the Daily Mail.

That said, it does seem that way Clarkson‘s expensive contract, worth around £3 million a year, remains in the seat previously occupied by Chris Tarantat least for another season.

“Yes, right now we are [keeping him on],” Kevin Lygosaid ITV’s Director of Media and Entertainment.

“What he says in the papers is beyond our control.”

So that hasty column for The Sun could cost Clarkson expensive.
