Jeremy Clarkson has written about how much he will miss hosting Top Gear and thanked fans for their support after he was sacked from the popular motoring show following a 'fracas' with a producer.

The presenter has not spoken publicly about being axed by the BBC, other than to say that "everybody's upset", but in his column in the Sun newspaper today, Clarkson briefly mentioned the incident.

Heartfelt thanks to all those who have written to say how much they will miss me on Top Gear. It's not as much, however, as I'll miss being there.
