In the first significant update on Mitchell's health in the months since an ambulance was sent to her Los Angeles house to take her to hospital a statement on the singer's website said:

Joni did in fact suffer an aneurysm. However, details that have emerged in the past few days are mostly speculative.

"The truth is that Joni is speaking, and she's speaking well. She is not walking yet, but she will be in the near future as she is undergoing daily therapies. She is resting comfortably in her own home and she's getting better each day. A full recovery is expected

All three presenters featured in the pre-recorded show with Clarkson aptly commenting: "I hate working on Top Gear."

However, after the show each of the three presenters have their reaction to the show's finale on twitter.
