Broadcaster and self-confessed petrolhead Jeremy Clarkson could launch a bid to unseat Labour leader Ed Miliband.
Mr Clarkson, who lives in Chadlington near Chipping Norton, admitted he was considering a parliamentary bid on social networking site Twitter.
He tweeted: “I’m thinking I might stand in the next election as an independent for Doncaster North, which is where I’m from. Thoughts?”
It comes after Mr Clarkson played the part of auctioneer at a fundraiser for Chipping Norton Lido on Friday.
