Chris Evans to host ‘Top Gear’

London, June 17 (IANS) TV and radio personality Chris Evans will replace Jeremy Clarkson as the host of the TV series “Top Gear”.

BBC, which produces the show, announced the latest development on Tuesday.

According to bbc.com, Evans is “thrilled” to get the job, describing the motoring show as his “favourite programme of all time”.

“I’m thrilled, ‘Top Gear’ is my favourite programme 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,” he said in a statement.

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

Clarkson was dropped in March after punching a producer while on location. Evans has signed a three-year deal with the BBC Two show.
