LONDON, March 21 (UPI) -- Suspended Top Gear co-host Jeremy Clarkson railed against the BBC in a speech laden with F-bombs at a charity event.
Clarkson has been suspended while he is under investigation for allegedly verbally abusing a program producer, but he has admitted he expects to be fired once the probe is complete next week.
"The BBC have [expletive] themselves," The Guardian reported Clarkson told the attendees at a charity auction at the Roundhouse in London Thursday. "It was a great show and they [expletive] it up."
Clarkson was at the event to auction off a lap around the Top Gear racetrack and raise money for young students interested in the arts.
"I didn't foresee my sacking, but I would like to do one last lap. So, I'll go down to Surrey and I'll do one last lap of that track before the [expletive] bastards sack me," he said. "I'll be a bit tearful when I do it, but [expletive] it, let's do it."
Hundreds of thousands of fans have been campaigning to have Clarkson reinstated.
