Top Gear producers have responded to the recent criticism over its India special.
A statement from the BBC read: “Our film showed the charm, the beauty, the wealth, the poverty and the idiosyncrasies of India, but there’s a vast difference between showing a country, warts and all, and insulting it.
“It’s simply not the case that we displayed a hostile or superior attitude to our hosts and that’s very clear from the way the presenters can be seen to interact with them along the way.
“We genuinely loved our time in India and if there were any jokes to be had they were, as ever, reflected back on the presenters rather than the Indian people.”
