'Written by vegan communists!' Jeremy Clarkson slams David Attenborough's Frozen Planet II
Jeremy Clarkson has blasted David Attenborough's Frozen Planet II claiming that the new series of the show is only concerned with pushing the "message on climate change".The former Top Gear host, 62, didn't hold back as he took issue with the popular BBC series, while slamming the wildlife expert's alleged "lack of involvement" with the creation of the show.The Grand Tour host started by saying how brilliant David's nature documentaries were, applauding the biologist for making it "fun" to learn things.However, Jeremy was quick to claim that he no longer finds it the case.The motoring expert penned: "Today, Sir Attenborough is too old to appear in the films and I’m afraid he doesn’t even write the script any more."He went on to claim the show is now written by people who are keen to push the message of climate change.Jeremy went on: "He just reads out words that have been written by a team of vegan communists who have only one thing on their minds."Climate change," he wrote in his column for The Sun.The Clarkson's Farm star branded the series a "joke", claiming it's hitting the "'climate change is bad' gong."He continued: "I’ve been watching Frozen Planet II and it’s a joke, because we learn nothing at all."We see some dramatic footage of a polar bear and before we are told anything at all, we are warned that because of human activity and capitalism and Donald Trump, the poor bear’s habitat is disappearing."The Diddly Squat Farm owner told how he has now turned the show into a drinking game.Jeremy explained he now has a beer every time climate change is mentioned, claiming "it’s the only way to make this half-a***d twaddle tolerable."It comes after the Top Gear star received the exciting news that his daughter Emily

David Attenborough brutally told David Dimbleby he'd 'never work in BBC politics again'
BBC until his retirement, working on Question Time and also hosting the election night coverage from 1979 to 2017. In a recent interview, the retired journalist revealed that fellow BBC frontman David Attenborough, 96, once threatened him that he would never work in politics for the BBC again unless he changed an article he wrote about one of the corporation's big bosses.David spoke about the "row" he was involved in during the early 1970s with former Prime Minister Harold Wilson.As Labour unexpectedly lost the 1970 election, David called this "the biggest bust-up with a political party the BBC had ever provoked".In the aftermath of the events, David decided to write an article about the BBC's governors and their "inadequate protectors" of the company.As his contract required, David showed the letter to the BBC and the director of programmes at the time, David Attenborough.David told The Daily Telegraph: "The director of programmes at the time, taking a break from filming gorillas, was David Attenborough, whose ability to enforce difficult decisions with great charm had landed him with the nickname 'the baby-faced killer'."He summoned me to see him and told me that unless I removed one particular passage from my critique I would never again be able to work in politics at the BBC, although he said a place might be found for me in children’s television – a threat for which to his credit he has since frequently apologised."I cannot remember whether I obeyed.

‘Quite tongue-in-cheek’: Scarlett Moffatt describes ‘David Attenborough-style’ new project
“And for me, like, the biggest thing about hotels is breakfast, because it always feels like such a treat.“So Hampton by Hilton started this wonderful, refreshed breakfast buffet, where it's free.“So I was like, ‘Of course, I want to get involved!’“And I'm very inquisitive, and I always find it very fascinating how different people act when they sort of like their breakfast buffet behaviours.”Scarlett went on: “So, yeah, when Hampton by Hilton approached me and said, ‘You want to get on board?’ I was like, ‘Yes’ because it's all the things that I love.“And it's sort of quite tongue-in-cheek in the fact that it's a bit David Attenborough-style, sort of watching people and how they react.“But it's nice because I think it's something that everyone can relate to.“Like, personally, I'm a smuggler. Like, I do like to take a little bread roll or a little croissant for the road.”Speaking about her participation in the campaign ahead of her interview, Scarlett revealed: “The breakfast buffet is without a doubt one of the best bits of a trip away for me and at Hampton by Hilton hotels, it’s completely free – what more could you want!"When it comes to the breakfast buffet, I’m a little bit of a ‘Smuggler’ and am known to sneak a croissant away with me to enjoy in the room with a cuppa later in the day."That said, I’m also guilty of being a ‘Stacker’ too, piling up delicious smoky bacon and hot waffles is literally my idea of heaven!"I think we can all agree that a good night’s sleep followed by a hot brekkie sets us up for the day.

Baby seals to get 'smashed to death' in harrowing scenes for new Frozen Planet series
David Attenborough, 96, will be at the helm of Frozen Planet II when it catapults onto our television sets this weekend - but viewers should be prepared for sad and upsetting scenes.With a focus on nature, animals and the frozen world as climate change wreaks havoc, the BBC wildlife programme is set to be more gut-wrenching than ever before.READ NEXT: David Attenborough's incredible net worth as he releases brand new documentaryLegendary wildlife expert, commentator and broadcaster Sir David will explore the climate crisis, giving us a glimpse at how our planet is changing for the worse.One of the sad scenes set to air sees a group of baby harp seals suffer from the effects of climate change in an awful turn of events.Learning about the fluffy white seals which inhabit the arctic, viewers will hear how the seals were previously endangered when they were exposed to being brutally murdered.With their fur sought after, the seals were in danger of being killed for their fur - but now they face being killed because of the climate.In harrowing scenes set to air very soon, viewers will see a storm take place in the arctic.The harsh climate and weather conditions will leave the seals vulnerable as the fluffy white marine mammals get swept to their grisly deaths on camera.Series producer Elizabeth White has spoken about the seals, saying: "It’s the story of how a mum only has 12 days with her pup - it’s one of the fastest weaning periods in nature."They have this tiny amount of time together so she pumps it full of really rich milk and it gets very fat very quickly then it needs to learn to swim and she has to leave it to go off and feed."So that little seal is dependent on sitting on its ice floe while it builds up the strength
