With the ex-Top Gear presenter already having ties with ITV through his presenting of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, it’s a possibility, however, take this with a pinch of salt as no sources have been stated in the original article, and while it doesn’t look like an April Fools joke, it certainly could be.
The outlet has also stated that other celebrities rumoured to be joining Clarkson on the show includes boxer Ricky ‘The Hitman’ Hatton, former footballer Paul Merson and TV host Richard Madeley. MarkHoyle, the owner of LadBaby is also rumoured to be joining them after landing Christmas Number 1 twice in a row.
We’ve reached out to Clarkson but are yet to hear back.
As Doncaster FreePress has stated, the odds for Clarkson being on the reality TV show hosted by Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly currently stands at 4-1. Ricky Hatton and LadBaby sit at 3-10 and 1-3 respectively.
We can’t see this being true, personally, but we’ll update you as we know more. The show also sits in limbo as COVID-19 could quickly cancel any new shows, especially those with groups of people together in close proximity, with ease.
