No Argie bargy, Jezza.. he's Spanish.

JEREMY Clarkson's claim that he was kept off a plane by a vengeful Argentinian airport worker has been denied by officials.

And they insisted the staffer is actually Spanish.

Former Top Gear host Jezza alleged Manuel Pereira barred him from the British Airways flight, saying: "I'm from Argentina, so f*** you."

Clarkson, 56, even claimed police told him it was a hate crime and the man would be arrested over the alleged row in Stuttgart.

But the motormouth was humiliated yesterday as police revealed he and his crew were stopped because they arrived too late after missing boarding calls - and that Pereira is Spanish.

Clarkson and co-hosts James May, 53, and Richard Hammond, 46, were forced to flee Argentina in 2014 after an apparent Falklands numberplate stunt that enraged locals.
