The BBC received complaints about the controversial presenter when in May, this year, The Mirror published footage appearing to show him saying the racial slur while singing the children’s nursery rhyme Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe.

The Trust decided not to consider the original complaints beyond the appeal stage, and have maintained that position, citing that footage was not broadcast and that “apologies had been made“.

Clarkson maintains that he did not use the term, which he mumbles in the out-take, and has previously asked for forgiveness in an online video.
