It Looks Like Things Could Be Going From Bad To Worse For Chris Evans
There was a pretty standard response to the BBC's new incarnation of Top Gear, which aired on BBC Two last night.
But things have gone from bad to worse for presenter Chris Evans, who was announced as Jeremy Clarkson's replacement last year.
Bookmakers have slashed the odds on Chris Evans future with Top Gear after 'disappointing' viewing figures, the Metro has reported.
Before the show bookmakers Coral said that Chris, who is also a BBC Radio 2 DJ, was odds of 10/1 to be sacked while co-host Matt LeBlanc, who used to play Joey in Friends, was 6/1 to quit.
However, Ladbrokes now have odds of Chris returning for another series at just 1/4, meaning if you put a quid on you'd only get 25p back.
Not looking good for him, is it?
Here's what some of you have been saying about a potential Chris Evans sacking on Twitter...
Do you know what would make the new @BBC_TopGear better? Sacking Chris Evans. #MattLeBlanc #TopGear

Not an original idea in it. Chris Evans very weak. Matt LeBlanc an Sabine great. Sack Chris and keep them. @BBC_TopGear

At least he has one fan...
- so attractive
- although he's kind of overrated
- but he's still an amazing actor who has a lot of potential

Although thinking about it, she might be on about a different Chris Evans.
Ladbrokes now also have odds of 1/2 on it being the last series of Top Gear on the BBC.
Anyway, is Chris Evans now to television what Louis van Gaal was to football?
Let us know lads, I can't wait to hear your views.
