Jeremy Clarkson has denied claims he used the N-word while filming an episode of BBC's Top Gear.
I did not use the n word. Never use it. The Mirror has gone way too far this time.
The Daily Mirror posted a video on its website of the presenter saying a nursery rhyme which it said had been studied by "audio forensic experts."
They claim Clarkson "can be heard chanting: "Eeny, meeny, miny, moe." He then mumbles: "Catch a n***** by his toe'."
A BBC spokeswoman said: "We've seen the story, the Mirror didn't approach us, clearly we'll establish the facts before commenting."
