Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson has been suspended by the BBC “following a fracas” with a producer.
The corporation said the 54-year-old presenter had been suspended “pending an investigation”.
“No one else has been suspended. Top Gear will not be broadcast this Sunday,” it said.
Clarkson was given what he called his “final warning” last May after claims he used a racist word while filming the popular BBC motoring show.
At the time, he said the BBC had told him he would be sacked if he made “one more offensive remark, anywhere, at any time”.
The BBC gave no further details on the current incident involving Clarkson, and said it would not be making any further statements at this time.
Clarkson’s representatives have yet to reply to requests for a comment.
The presenter himself has remained silent, however last month he tweeted a post saying a “new presenter for Top Gear” was wanted.
“Applicant should be old, badly dressed and pedantic but capable of getting to work on time,” he said.
