JEREMY Clarkson claims he was joking when he appeared to call BBC bosses "f***ing bastards" in an expletive-laden rant at a charity event.

The currently-suspended Top Gear presenter said he woke up on Friday to the news his speech at the charity gala for young people in London the previous evening had been videoed, and was told off by his lawyer.

Clarkson, who was suspended after allegedly punching producer Oisin Tymon during a row which took place after filming, had appeared to suggest he may be sacked from the popular show and criticised the corporation's executives.

"To be in the audience of Top Gear there was an 18-year waiting list," he told those gathered.

"You know the BBC has f***ed themselves, and so who gives a f***? It was a great show and they f***ed it up."

During the event, Clarkson also offered one lap around the Top Gear track for auction, Britain's Mirror reports.

"I'll drive somebody around in whatever I can get hold of. I'm sacked so it's probably an Austin Maestro," he said.

"But anyway it will be my last ever lap of the Top Gear track."

He added: "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 f***ing bastards sack me."

Writing afterwards in The Sunday Times, Clarkson said it had all been in good humour.

"But it was all meant in jest and anyway it worked," he said.

"By being brief, controversial and a bit sweary I woke the room up and the auction prize I was offering — one last lap of the Top Gear test track — raised STG100,000 ($193,050)."

A petition to have Clarkson reinstated on Top Gear has gathered almost one million signatures and was delivered by tank to BBC headquarters in London on Friday.

Clarkson tweeted his thanks to supporters but declared in his column in The Sun on Saturday that "protest never works".

His future at the BBC is likely to be decided this week when the corporation's internal investigation into his behaviour is handed over to the director-general.
