After months of guessing and speculation, the new BBC Top Gear co-host to star along side radio DJ, Chris Evans, is the one and only Matt LeBlanc!
2016 is a good year for F.R.I.E.N.D.S fans with the announcement of a cast reunion and now with LeBlanc, famous for playing Joey on the 10 year long American Sit Com, joins Chris Evans as the Top Gear host.
LeBlanc holds the record for the fastest lap in the shows feature ‘star in a reasonably priced car’. He set an impressive time of 1m 42.1s in the Kia cee’d. He will join Evans in the season premier in May 2016.
“As a car nut and a massive fan of Top Gear, I’m honoured and excited to be a part of this iconic show’s new chapter,” said Matt. “What a thrill!”
Evans had this to say about his new Top Gear co-host “Matt’s a lifelong fellow petrolhead and I’m thrilled he’s joining Top Gear. Acting out our craziest car notions on screen is a dream job and I know we’ll both be debating some epic road trip ideas.
“We can’t wait to share what we’ve been up to on screen later this year,” he added.
So far it seems Twitter is happy about it
