The cheeky chaps from BBC’s excellent Top Gear show – Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond – risked the ire of the RIverside stadium last Saturday as the trio ran on the pitch at halftime all draped in Newcastle shirts.
After initially being pelted with a chorus of boos from the livid home support, the TV personalities quickly disappeared back into the playersâ€™ tunnel before returning with red Boro strips on instead.
Looking to placate the crowd, Jeremy Clarkson got on the loudspeaker to bellow, “People of the North-East, We apologise for that terrible mistake. It was James’ fault!”
