Top Gear Live shows due to take place in Sheffield in June are still scheduled to go ahead - despite the postponement of some shows in Norway this week.

Presenter Jeremy Clarkson, from Rotherham, is suspended after allegedly punching a producer.

His future at the BBC is likely to be decided this week when the corporation’s internal investigation into his conduct is handed over to the director-general.

A BBC spokesman said: “Top Gear Live regrets to inform ticket holders for shows in Stavanger, Norway, that we will be postponing all four performances, with rescheduled dates for later this year to be confirmed within the next fortnight.

“We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this will cause fans and we will endeavour to contact all ticket holders directly to inform them of the change of dates.

“At present, all other Top Gear Live dates will run as scheduled.”

Top Gear Live is due at the Motorpoint Arena on June 5, 6 and 7.

It is the touring version of the BBC’s popular Top Gear television programme, which looks at the world’s most expensive, most powerful and most absurdly modified cars.
