Clark­son pay hits top gear


JEREMY Clark­son will be Bri­tain’s high­est-paid TV host for his new Ama­zon Prime se­ries. He will be paid the equiv­a­lent of his for­mer BBC an­nual salary for each episode.

Ama­zon founder Jeff Be­zos has said it was “very, very, very ex­pen­sive” to bring Clark­son and his Top Gear co-stars, James May and Richard Ham­mond to his dig­i­tal TV ser­vice. Clark­son will re­port­edly be paid £10 mil­lion ($21.6 mil­lion) a year for the as yet un­named car show – 10 times his for­mer an­nual fee.
