"In the past, Jeremy Clarkson has recalled that his mother, Shirley, would throw frying pans at him if he brought home a bad school report. Now Mrs C has the chance to strike back, having signed a deal with Harriman House to publish her memoirs. Shirley Clarkson is best known, apart from being Jeremy's mother, as the first producer of Paddington Bear toys, based on the books by Michael Bond. She was also the first person to put him into Wellingtons. The book is, therefore, cleverly entitled Bearly Believable, and comes out this summer."
