Jeremy Clarkson takes aim at Chris Evans

Jeremy Clarkson has risked reigniting his feud with the BBC by appearing to take a pop at Chris Evans, the man who replaced him as Top Gear host.
In the latest episode of The Grand Tour on Amazon Prime, Clarkson tested the BMW M4 GTS.
Discussing the car afterwards, he said: "I admire BMW for really trying with that car, I really do. But my god, they made a hash of it.
"In fact, I'm trying to think of a metaphor for someone who's really tried their hardest with something and it hasn't worked."
Clarkson then turned to his co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May but they too appeared to draw a blank. Clarkson concluded: "No, nothing's coming to mind."
There can be little doubt that this was a dig at Evans who quit Top Gear after just one series.
In a statement released at the time, Evans said: "I have never worked with a more committed and driven team than the team I have worked with over the last 12 months. I feel like my standing aside is the single best thing I can now do to help the cause."
Viewers took to social media in response to Clarkson's comments, with one describing the comments as "unbelievable".
