The Grand Tour presenter has made a career out of causing controversy, with his most recent tirade against Meghan Markle resulting in widespread criticism, including from Scotland’s First Minister and his own daughter.
The comments were made in a column for The Sun newspaper and have led to a record number of complaints to the Independent Press Standards Organisation (Ipso) – more than 17,500 and counting.
It’s not the first time he’s caused anger with his words, including when it comes to Scotland.
Here are 10 things he’s said about the country and its people – some complimentary, others...less so.

2. Jeremy Clarkson on...Scottish scenery
“I spent several days recently up beyond Inverness, and I’m not trying to suck up to the Scots, but it really is absolutely eyes-on-stalks beautiful. We often talk about breathtaking views, but in the Highlands they literally do that. I drove on Wednesday along the coast road north of Ullapool, and never have I gone so slowly. Sometimes the views were so spectacular, I coasted to a halt and never even noticed." Photo: AFP
