The speculation for the lead position of the “Top Gear” hit show is over. Moving forward with the uber successful British TV show, Chris Evans will be your host. Evans signed a 3 year deal and has been quoted saying “I promise I will do everything I possibly can to respect what has gone on before and take the show forward.”
Kim Shillinglaw, controller of BBC has said, “Chris is a huge fan of Top Gear and has great respect for the craft and work ethic of one of the best production teams in the world He knows the phenomenal attention to detail it takes to make a single sequence of Top Gear, let alone a whole series. He is already full of brilliant ideas and I can’t wait for him to get started.”
Salary has not yet been released or the name of the co-presenters. Filming of the 23rd season will start in a few weeks and debut early 2016.
