BBC has suspended Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson “following a fracas” with a producer.
Jeremy Clarkson, 54, had been suspended “pending an investigation”, the broadcaster said.
“No one else has been suspended. Top Gear will not be broadcast this Sunday,” it said.
At the time, Jeremy Clarkson said the BBC had told him he would be sacked if he made “one more offensive remark, anywhere, at any time”.
The broadcaster gave no further details on the current incident involving Jeremy Clarkson, and said it would not be making any further comment at this time.
This weekend’s episode of Top Gear was set to feature Jeremy Clarkson – who has fronted the show since 2002 – along with regular co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May at a classic track day.
Former footballer and pundit Gary Lineker was also to appear as the “star in a reasonably priced car”.
Jeremy Clarkson has courted controversy on several occasions during his time hosting Top Gear.
Top Gear‘s executive producer, Andy Wilman, described last year as “an annus horribilis” for the show.
