The new Top Gear presenters have been chosen!

The BBC hopes that by returning to the three presenter scheme it will be possible to restore Top Gear’s years of glory with Clarkson, Hammond and May.

At the end of the 26th season, Matt LeBlanc is leaving the Top Gear team. The official reason for his departure is the length of time he travels from the USA to the UK, and recording the programme in the UK significantly reduces the opportunity to spend time with family and friends in Los Angeles.

Rory Reid will also disappear from the team. He will now be the main presenter of the Extra Gear series.

The main presenter of Top Gear is now Chris Harris, and next to him there will be two new people. The first one is Paddy McGuinness, a British comedian known for his Take Me Out program. The second one was Andrew Flintoff, a cricket legend.

The BBC has signed a contract with two new presenters for the next two years.

    Why doesn’t the BBC either leave Top Gear alone – find a totally new project or find 3 people who actually know about vehicles and are somewhat funny. Chris Evans is a idiot who is not good at all! Is he married to someone there? Is that why they are keeping him? He’s awful

    Haven’t watched Top Gear since Clarkson, May & Hammond left. You ruined a good show. American version was garbage, so you bring an American to the UK version for what….make that one garbage too? You’ve succeeded. Only way to make Top Gear TOP again, is to bring back the TRIO before it’s too late.

    BBC just needs to give up! No matter what you do you cannot recreate the same thing with different people. Top Gear was not a show about cars, it was about 3 PEOPLE and cars.

    Agree on all the above, gave 1 a go from the last series before it died a death , now watch The Grand Tour on Amazon, it is far superior and smashes what used to be my favourite programme, the BBC will never get those 3 back so it’s the last chance really with the new guys, good luck to Freddie and Paddy, Chris Harris has really got his work cut out though to get the show back up. When they co e on, I’ll give it a chance, but they are not the holy trinity of motoring
