Top Gear Won't Replace Chris Evans

Following Chris Evans’ resignation from Top Gear, it does not seem that there will be a replacement host for the motoring show.


The five remaining hosts, Matt LeBlanc, Rory Reid, Chris Harris, Sabine Schmitz and Eddie Jordan, “will return for the next series, which is due to begin filming in September,” reports BBC News.

And who will fill the large (and much quieter) space that Evans leaves behind? Apparently no one, a BBC spokesperson told the UK’s Evening Standard:

Amid speculation over who could pick up the reins, a BBC spokeswoman said on Monday night the next series of Top Gear was unlikely to see any changes to the current line-up.

She said: “We have no immediate plans to replace Chris Evans and do not expect to do so going forward. “Series 24 starts filming in September.”


Hopefully that means more screen time with Matt LeBlanc (who I find delightful as a presenter), or Chris Harris (duh). Or literally anything else, even a plate of spaghetti, because a plate of spaghetti isn’t being investigated for sexual assault by the police.
