Top Gear. Even though it’s not on at the moment, it’s damn hard to avoid the torrent of news and controversy surrounding the prestigious title.

With Jeremy, James and Richard at Amazon, it seemed unlikely that the BBC could ever recreate their former host’s on-screen chemistry and show quality. Well, here’s who they’ve pulled together to bring back the show…

From left to right, you haveTV presenter Rory Reid,German racing driver Sabine Schmitz, actor Matt LeBlanc, main host Chris Evans,YouTuber Chris Harris, former F1 magnate and current F1 presenter Eddie Jordan, and the Stig… obviously.

I mean that’s a big team. It’s like So Solid Crew or something.

And considering he gets carsick and can’t talk and drive at the same time, is it wise for Chris Evans to be wearing, what look like, Uggs? At least Eddie Jordan seems ready, even if it does look like he put his trainers in the wash with a carton of Ribena…

Speaking of Eddie Jordan, here’s what he had to say about being appointed the role:

I’m giddy with excitement to be joining Chris and the team. I have such enormous respect for all my fellow presenters and I politely ask that they go easy on these old bones. Cars are in my DNA and althoughI’vebeen fortunate enough toaccomplish most things I ever aspired to in motorsport, presenting Top Gear is quite simply the icing on the cake.

So he seems happy. As does Rory Reid…

Meanwhile…

So, which do you think is going to be the better show? Top Gear or whatever Amazon are calling their one? Let us know in the comments!
