Have a seat, Richard.

THEY MAY NOT be on Top Gear anymore, but the former Top Gear lads still aren’t doing themselves any favours in the foot-in-mouth department.

Presenter Richard Hammond is in hot water today for saying that he doesn’t eat ice cream, because he’s “straight”.

In a segment of The Grand Tour (their new show on Amazon Prime) with co-presenters Jeremy Clarkson and James May, Hammond responds to Clarkson saying you couldn’t enjoy a chocolate Magnum inside a particular car, telling him

It’s alright, I don’t eat ice cream. It’s got something to do with being straight.

[Audience guffaws]

Clarkson and May look bemused at his answer, with Clarkson asking:

Are you saying everyone who likes ice cream… you’re saying all children are [mutters] homosexual*?

[More audience guffawing]

*God forbid he might say it out loud lest he might CATCH IT

Hammond counters:

There’s nothing wrong with it, but a grown man eating an ice cream, you know, it’s a bit… it’s that way rather than that way.

[Makes juvenile gestures with hands]

Cue a bit more BANTER about 99s and 69s and a “chocolate thingy”, some more guffawing, and the final death knell for any credibility these LADS once had.

Naturally, people are annoyed, and the digs are coming in thick and fast.

Just keeping it local:

And finally, apologies for being a bit late to the story but…
