'Top Gear' Insider Has Reportedly Revealed Who's Replacing Chris Evans
So, that's it. Chris Evans has finally decided to step down as the main presenter of the new Top Gear.
I wish I could say I was arsed.
Anyway, the question on everyone's lips is: 'Who's going to replace him?!'. According to the Mirror, no-one.
As weird as that sounds, a Top Gear insider has apparently revealed to the paper that the showis in pre-production for series 24, so they plan to continue with no changes to the current line-up.
This means that fan favourite Matt LeBlanc is now the lead presenter.
Stepping down from Top Gear. Gave it my best shot but sometimes that's not enough. The team are beyond brilliant, I wish them all the best.

The same magical source also confirmed that 'the BBC did not ask Chris to step down from his role'. However, I have a sneaky suspicion that this is nowhere near the end of hearing about what went on behind the scenes of Top Gear.
Anyway, let's take a look at what Twitter had to say.

Doesn't really sound like people are that bothered if I'm honest.
