It's Chris Evans

Just announced as the new Top Gear host......quite like the sound of this, particularly after last weeks TFI !

Wonder who will be the rest of the team? Johnny Vaughan and Denise Van Outen

I think he's an excellent choice for the job. Might even make the show better than it's ever been, writers permitting.

Let's see who we over expose on telly and radio and use him. That should irritate a few people.

Yup, high up on choice list.

I want to see a "tame racing driver" put to use in actually reviewing cars. Plato style.

I think then rolling guest presenters would be good like;

All of the other "good" presenters (Guy Martin, Andy McNish, Jenson Button, Carl Foggerty, Leon Haslam, Jay Leno, JK. . . )

Plato and Evans are mates anyway so i suspect Plato will jump ship from 5th gear and join TFI Top Gear

James Martin would be worth a couple of quid bet for one of the other chairs, already on BBC contract. Also writes a car column for a Sunday paper iirc.

I think the BBC might go with Jody Kidd as one - she was awful with Quentin in that classic car show though...

Didn't a certain radio 2 and One show presenter say in march he wouldn't be a top gear host?

I'm with the above, please don't let James Martin on, the mille miglia program he did a few year back was awful and TopGear Magazine ran an article agreeing with me on this one.

Another reason for me not watching TG again, I can not stand people who shouts, to make themselves heard,
And Chris Evans does like that idiot James Corden

Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at

I really don't get why he has been a success. I'm sure he's a nice guy but just comes across as a bit boring and talentless.

Brilliant in Gavin and Stacey, sh*te in EVERYTHING else...
Good example of something who thinks they're funnier than they are.

You are right, he was, but playing a character who was fairly boring and talentless.

I like Evans. I just hope they choose some decent co-hosts and change the format as I thought Top Gear was tired. I think I would rather the hosts from Chop Shop than Jodie Kidd.

I really don't like Evans and his whiney voice.... But as others have said the format was tired and dull...

So shake up the show, have Evans, Guy Martin and Sabine and do something a bit different...


But its the beeb...they will play it safe and keep the same format and get in "generic" presenters who will tow the party line.... They should have left it a few years first though!

Guy Martin may not be a great choice - he admitted recently that he finds it very difficult to relate to people, and sometimes needs to spend time alone. His publicity people usually limit his interview time to 30 minutes or so because of it. (They did say what his personality disorder was - Asberger Syndrome, a form of autism).





The older I get, the better I was...

It's funny, the general public seem aghast at the choice of Chris Evans to replace Jeremy Clarkson, yet here on this forum, we welcome it. Then again, anyone that builds their own cars is a bit nuts.
