Top Gear To Continue
You heard that right, folks! The BBC refuse to let Top Gear die, even without its hosts Richard Hammond, James May and Jeremy Clarkson. I expected Hammond and May to decline the BBC’s lucrative offer to stay on and I’m told they barely even considered the offer, which is said to be over £5million each for several seasons. I’ve been told the pair are eager to stick with Clarkson and they’re currently in the process of pitching shows to Netflix and various other media outlets, but all three are resigning to accepting a deal that starts out a little low paying at first.
Top Gear, however, will race on and return with a different guest host every week until a permanent decision can be made. DJ Chris Evans of BBC2 Radio is in line for a position on the rebooted Top Gear and has confirmed he is set to start filming a ‘secret sequent’ for the show soon.
