It'll struggle to be worse than the recent effort from Quentin Wilson and Jodie Kidd (Classic Car Show). The awful scripted banter between them was embarrassing and painful to watch.

Ps still prefer Car SOS even though it seems it's a bit of a shame.

Just goes to show that Top Gear hasn't been about cars for many many years.

Wow i hope the show isn't this predicable..............There is a roomer the PC brigade have jumped on Top gear, so expect a female presenter too (Sabine Schmitz is where my money is).

Amazon Prime are reported to have paid 175 Million Pounds for the rights to the ex Top Gear presenters to form a new show on the subscription network.

Here's a good article giving information on both the Chris Evans led BBC show and the Clarkson, May and Hammond reboot expected this Autumn.

This picture is interesting too...... Looks like Chris Harris is on the short list then.....(Left side fourth in)

Note looks like Oisin Tymon is still on the crew.
