Jeremy Clarkson About Stig’s Decision To Unmask: “I feel hurt, it was shocking”
After the British driver Ben Collins decided to break the Top Gear mystery, announcing that he is The Stig, Jeremy Clarkson is obviously sad about his decision.
In an exclusive interview for the online British television Witney TV, Jeremy Clarkson claims that Ben Collins’ decision to unveil that he is The Stig affected the whole team at Top Gear: “It was such a shock. It was horrible actually because I liked him. Trust me, we have many, many thousands of people queueing up to be whatever it is we create. He’s just decided he’d rather be … put it this way he’s history as far as we are concerned. He’s sacked,” said Clarkson.
According to the statements of the star of the TV show with the most viewers in the world, Ben Collins was very close to him, so he can’t understand the reasons why he chose to unveil one of the most well-kept secrets of the television. “He came round to my house and had drinks and all that time he was writing a book, so I feel a bit hurt really,” Jeremy Clarkson added.
Regarding the next Stig, Clarkson answered just like we like him to, with an ironic statement, announcing that the secret driver of the Top Gear TV Show will not be one of the three hosts, in the team: “Richard can’t drive and James is too slow. We’ll get somebody, don’t you worry. Top Gear is damaged but not out.”
