Jeremy Clarkson says he wouldn't appear on Piers Morgan's new US chat show, even if the interview was conducted in his ''back garden''
Jeremy Clarkson has refused to appear on Piers Morgan's new US chat show.
The 'Top Gear' host - who accepted the award for Most Popular Factual Programme at last night's (26.01.11) National Television Awards - slammed 'Piers Morgan Tonight', saying he wouldn't be a guest on the series even if the interview was conducted in his "back garden".
He told BANG Showbiz: "Even if CNN recorded that show in my back garden I still wouldn't go on it. I'm utterly thrilled that Piers Morgan has that job because it means he's 3,000 miles away from where I am."
Meanwhile, Jeremy's 'Top Gear' co-host James May admitted the show's new mystery driving expert - known as The Stig - is "much better" than speedway star Ben Collins, whose identity was controversially revealed last year amid a row over the release of his tell-all autobiography.
However, he refused to address mounting speculation that the new Stig is a woman.
James said: "The new Stig is much better. He's broken two world records in one week, has he not? And he's taught someone to break a record, so he's pretty good, yeah.
"Although 'he' could be he, she or it. We can't say."
