Prosecutor Simon Davis told Birmingham Crown Court that car dealer Richard Esprit had conned the Norwegian star over promises that he would deliver two Porsches boasting, "all the specifications Jeremy Clarkson would dream about."

The prosecutor explained how Carew handed over ?110,000 for a Porsche Cayenne Gemballa that he never received, and also paid ?92,500 for a 198-mile-an-hour Porsche 997, only to later find out that the car had already been registered in someone else's name.

Never trust a car dealer who mentions Clarkson, I guess.

He should have figured that out right away - Clarkson hates Porsches!

BrownJohn, as we call him, is a great footballplayer. But he is not very smart.

I would hate to be kicked around like that.
