Jeremy Clarkson will join the Top Gear team in SA

01 April 2015, 09:26

Cape Town - Axed BBC Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson will attend the Top Gear Live Tour in South Africa in June, organisers confirmed to Channel24.

"We are thrilled to announce that this means that the show will go on in Johannesburg," Annie Fyfe-Hitching said in a statement late on Tuesday.

She was referring to a statement issued by BBC Worldwide, saying; "So as not to disappoint the thousands of people around the world who have already purchased tickets, BBC Worldwide has agreed with our joint venture partner Brand Events that the remainder of the tour can continue. These events will not however feature any BBC Top Gear branding or content. We believe this is a sensible approach in the circumstances.”

Fyfe-Hitching said Top Gear presenters Richard Hammond, Jame May and axed host Clarkson would attend the event in Johannesburg from 12 June to 14 June.

"Clarkson, Hammond and May will be in attendance with their unique and irreverent brand of entertainment," said Fyfe-Hitching.

Tickets will go on sale soon.

Clarkson was fired from the hugely popular motoring show following a "fracas" with a Top Gear producer last month.
