It's a world where Jeremy Clarkson's Top Gear contract will not be renewed after he launched an "unprovoked attack" on Oisin Tymon and left his producer in A&E. After the attack, Tymon believed he had been sacked, and Clarkson was the one who told BBC bosses about the assault.

Responding to the news today, Tymon said he loved Top Gear and had worked on the show for nearly a decade.

"Over that time Jeremy and I had a positive and successful working relationship, making some landmark projects together. He is a unique talent and I am well aware that many will be sorry his involvement in the show should end in this way," he said.

What a time to be alive.
