A Jeremy Clarkson lookalike says he would be delighted to replace the star on the hit BBC show Top Gear. Dublin-based barrister Jimmy Sharkey is used to being stopped in the street by fans wanting to get their picture taken with him.

Now Jimmy (57) has said he would love to fill in for the star on the show.

“I love Top Gear and I think it would be a shame if it left our screens,” he said.

“I also love cars and I would love to fill in for Clarkson if he’s off the air for a while. I’m getting my CV and video ready and will send it off to the BBC because you never know,” he laughed.
