Clive James is to leave his role as TV critic of The Daily Telegraph after three years.
A statement from the Telegraph said: “Clive James is one of the best and most respected writers in British journalism, and we are proud to feature his work in the Telegraph. After this Saturday, he will no longer write a weekly television column in the Telegraph. He would like to focus more of his time and energy on completing two books. However, it is our intention that Clive will contribute major essays and other extended pieces for the newspaper in the future, specifically on the publication of his forthcoming books.”
