Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has been accused of making an offensive ‘whore’ joke about glamour girl Katie Price.

Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson accused of making Katie Price ‘whore’ jibe

Audience members were shocked when Jeremy referred to Katie’s pink horsebox as a “whore’s box.”

But when quizzed by co-star Richard Hammond over his words, the 50-year-old insisted: “Horsebox, what did you think I said?”

He then joked that the former topless model might want to buy a number plate saying ‘ME11ONS’.

However Katie saw the funny side, telling the Daily Star: “I’ve got ‘BA11S’ if they want to swap!”

BBC insiders insisted that Clarkson had in fact said ‘horsebox’ and the jibe had been a misunderstanding.

The show’s outspoken presenters landed the beeb in hot water earlier this year after it was forced to apologise to the Mexican ambassador in London over comments made by Hammond.

He said: “Mexican cars are just going to be lazy, feckless, flatulent, overweight, leaning against a fence asleep looking at a cactus with a blanket with a hole in the middle on as a coat.”

Mexican food was also described as “refried sick”.
