The 33-year-old, who’s a panellist on Loose Women, made her comments earlier today, saying:

“He is very aware of the deep rooted negative connotations associated with that word and whether you mumble it, whether you say it, it is not on.

“It is not acceptable and it is deeply offensive to too many people. Personally, I believe the BBC should exercise zero tolerance. He has got to go.”

Jeremy, 54, has been accused of using a racist term while reciting a nursery rhyme for an episode of Top Gear.

The footage, which is thought to have been filmed two years ago, came to light after it was found by a national newspaper.

The TV presenter had previously denied the claims against him, telling his Twitter followers: “I did not use the N-word. Never use it. The Mirror has gone way too far this time.”

However, following this, Jeremy later posted a video statement asking fans for forgiveness.

What do you think? Should Jeremy be sacked by the BBC?
