Top Gear line-up is now complete
11 Feb 2016 10:10
The full line-up for Top Gear has been revealed, and there are now a whopping seven presenters.
-
Joining main host Chris Evans, the Stig and Friends star Matt LeBlanc will be ex-Formula 1 boss Eddie Jordan, YouTube star Chris Harris, German racing driver Sabine Schmitz and journalist Rory Reid, who won his place through public auditions that took place last year.
-
Evans said on his BBC Radio 2 breakfast show: "We really do have a bit of everything for everyone.
-
"A fellow lifelong petrolhead from the other side of the pond in Matt; a fearless speed-demon in the irrepressible and effervescent Sabine; the encyclopedic, funny and wonderfully colourful character that is EJ; Chris, one of the world's top no-nonsense car reviewers; and Rory, who simply blew me away in his audition and fully deserves his place on the team."
-
Jordan said of joining the long-running show: "I have such enormous respect for all my fellow presenters and I politely ask that they go easy on these old bones."
-
Racing driver Schmitz said: "I grew up next to the Nürburgring and have been racing for most of my life, so the chance to combine both driving and filming was too good an opportunity to pass up."
-
The new series of Top Gear is due to return in May.
