Jeremy Clarkson set to make millions from new Amazon show

He might have been axed from the BBC but judging by this news, Jeremy Clarkson probably got over it quite quickly.

Clarkson is set to earn £10m a year from his new show, with big-spending Amazon Prime shelling out £160m on 36 episodes - a budget of £4.5m per episode.

The former Top Gear host will be increasing his old BBC wage tenfold, with fellow presenters Richard Hammond and James May also set for a significant pay rise.


The Amazon deal will make Clarkson the highest paid TV presenter going. Seems his exit from the Beeb hasn't worked out too badly.
