Jeremy Clarkson has turned down the offer of a tour of the Isle of Sheppey, after he made disparaging remarks about the holiday destination in Kent.

The Top Gear presenter was offered a personal tour of the island by its MP Gordon Henderson after he wrote in the show's magazine that Sheppey was one big caravan site and claimed that Kent is full of refugees from the French port of Calais.

However, the BBC reports that Clarkson's representatives have been in touch to decline the offer, due to his filming commitments for the show.

Mr Henderson reportedly explained that Sheppey's caravan sites are popular with tourists, telling the news provider: "I was not disappointed with Jeremy's response as he may well take up the offer some time in the future.

"If he does, he will receive a warm welcome."

After the controversy caused by Clarkson's latest comments, a spokesperson for BBC Worldwide, which publishes the magazine, said that the column was intended to be "tongue-in-cheek".
