It's Matt LeBlanc!
This is because he has never starred in a show with more than one word in the title before.
Speculation in December concentrated on the names Sabine Schmitz, Chris Harris & David Coulthard. I guess that speculation didn't look far enough away from Europe. I would be happy if any or all of these three joined the show - it doesn't have to have exactly three presenters after all - and these three are racers or motoring journos, my favourite two categories of people to present TV car shows.
Something that Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc are not.
But Top Gear is not so much a TV car show so much as an entertainment, nay comedy, show with a big car content.
I'm very happy. Both have proved themselves car-wise and Matt led the Star-in-a-Reasonably-Priced-Car leaderboard for quite a while.
It was always going to be a very difficult job replacing Jeremy, James and Richard. They seem to be going about it the right way. Very impressive casting.
Now we need some very impressive writing.
Wonder if Matt knows any good comedy writers?
