Is Chris Evans Going To Be Demoted On Top Gear?
Poor Chris Evans. The bloke has had an absolute nightmare ever since the day it was announced he would front the revamped series of Top Gear.
Fans and critics have slaughtered his performance on the BBC Two motor show and he's been plagued by rumours that he's getting the chop.
Now, the presenter is allegedly in serious trouble with BBC boss Kate Phillips over his "control freak" behaviour.
According to reports, the 50-year-old has been given the 'biggest telling off of his career' and he's been warned that if he doesn't change, Matt LeBlanc will take over as the main man.

A magical, mystery source told The Sun: "He's now going to be told there will be changes and if he doesn't like it then he should go.
"Matt is more well-known and popular with audiences, so Chris will take a back seat like he did towards the end of the series.
"The other presenters will have a more prominent role and it will be seen as an ensemble rather than Chris and his team."
Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear.
