This is just pure speculation, but we’re seeing a lot of news surrounding Top Gear today and a replacement for Chris Evans. That replacement being James Martin?!
Initially the BBC said there would be no replacement for Chris Evans and Matt Le Blanc would take the spotlight as main host but after his unsuccessful bid to present last series we’re seeing a lot of newspapers reporting he’s on the verge of landing the role.
A source stated: “James’ nose was put out of joint when he didn’t get the Top Gear job last time around. He felt he was perfect for it and should have at least been considered.”
We’re not sure who is in charge of recruitment at the BBC, but we aren’t sure what is wrong with them, fair enough James Martin is a keen petrol head and has a pretty good career in presenting shows but can he bring the enthusiasm and charisma that was blatantly missing last series? We don’t think so but I guess only time will tell..
We will keep you updated as more news comes through but this is the strongest amount of speculation we’ve seen about the series since Chris Evans’ departure earlier this year.
