Chris Evans to replace Jeremy Clarkson on BBC’s Top Gear

British broadcaster Chris Evans has been named as the new host of BBC’s popular automotive show Top Gear

The BBC has announced British broadcaster Chris Evans has signed a three-year deal to lead an all-new Top Gear lineup.

Chris Evans says: “I’m thrilled, Top Gear is my favourite program of all time, created by a host of brilliant minds who love cars and understand how to make the massively complicated come across as fun, devil-may-care and effortless. When in fact of course, it’s anything but and that’s the genius of Top Gear‘s global success.

“I promise I will do everything I possibly can to respect what has gone on before and take the show forward.”

Production on the new series of Top Gear will start in the next few weeks with the BBC promising more information will be announced in due course.
