Jeremy Clarkson is booked to guest host Have I Got News For You next month, despite having been suspended from Top Gear following a "fracas" with a producer.

The controversial presenter is due on the satirical panel show for the third episode of its new run in May, series boss Jimmy Mulville confirmed earlier.

Mulville will be meeting with the BBC to discuss whether or not the current investigation into Clarkson will prevent him from fronting Have I Got News For You with team captains Ian Hislop and Paul Merton.

"As far as I'm concerned he is hosting Have I Got News For You, the BBC has not told me what to do yet and it will be an interesting conversation," he said at a Broadcasting Press Guild breakfast today.

"He is due to present the third episode which I think is in early May."
