He may have been the star of FRIENDS, but Top Gear star Matt Le Blanc appears to be more than just friends with Top Gear producer Aurora Mulligan, according to reports in the UK tabloid The Sun. The Episodes star, 48, is said to has been dating Mulligan, 31, for a couple of months and went public with their romance at the Hickstead Derby on Saturday. A spectator said to The Sun: “‘They were tactile and Matt seemed to be very taken with Aurora. She just kept laughing at all of his jokes.”
Mulligan recently appeared in the controversial reboot as a bride, partaking in one of the show’s stunts.
Le Blanc is also said to be campaigning for the firing of Top Gear co-host Chris Evans. Evans has received the worst reviews out of the new Top Gear reboot presenters and has made headlines for his allegedly terrible treatment of behind-the-scenes staff.
The reboot of Top Gear is struggling in the ratings, scoring only 2.34 million in the ratings, the lowest of the season and the show’s highly acclaimed and rated history.
I hear from my sources that some in the upper echelon are feeling remorse over the handling of Top Gear version 2 with many expressing regret at the hiring of Evans.
