Former Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson has insisted he has 'absolutely no idea' what his future holds, but he is 'not going to be a milkman'.

In his first interview since being axed as the show’s presenter following his attack on producer Oisin Tymon, Clarkson said he was busier than ever – despite being unemployed.

But he told Chris Evans’s breakfast show on Radio 2 that getting axed from Top Gear, which he described as 'my baby', had left 'a big hole' which was 'my own silly fault'.

Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are believed to be negotiating with a streaming service like Netflix or Amazon.

But Clarkson said he had just been 'listening' to offers from broadcasters and added: “I’m just getting really good at tennis.”
