In March 2015, Jeremy was suspended by the BBC over a catering dispute, which took place while they were filming on location in Hawes, North Yorkshire.

Following an investigation into the incident it was determined that a member of staff was subjected to an "unprovoked physical and verbal attack" by the presenter.

The news made headlines at the time and the BBC later announcing his contract with the broadcaster would not be renewed.

Following this, Richard and James handed in their resignations as a result.
