This news comes after a clash between Clarkson and a BBC producer.

The BBC will not broadcast 'Top Gear' this Sunday following the suspension of show presenter Jeremy Clarkson. The 54-year-old used his 'final warning' last year after allegedly making a racist remark when reciting the nursery rhyme 'Eeny, Meeny, Miny Moe.'

Clarkson has stirred up controversy in the past, using on more than one occasion what has been referred to as insensitive and/or offensive comments. No timeframe has been given regarding the length of his suspension.

Statement

An official statement from the BBC read, "Following a fracas with a BBC producer, Jeremy Clarkson has been suspended pending an investigation."

"No one else has been suspended. Top Gear will not be broadcast this Sunday. The BBC will be making no further comment at this time."

It is not yet known when the popular motoring show Top Gear will be back on air, which has been around since 2002.
