Former Top Gear presenter Quentin Willson says Jeremy Clarkson "is a very difficult bloke to work with".

Speaking to BBC Radio 4's PM programme he said: "Jeremy is a massive global talent.

"He's a very difficult bloke to work with, but there is this obvious truth, isn't there, that success always interferes with talent.

"If you've got a global audience of 350 million people hanging on your every word, then that makes you detached from your sources. It's so sad that this is his requiem, if you like."

He added: "This was, whichever way you look at it, unacceptable behaviour. It's not right to whack someone on your team because you haven't had your dinner."
