Nothing But TV: Watch the first trailer for the brand new series of Top Gear!
The BBC have released the first trailer for Top Gear series 26.
The new run will be Matt Le Blanc’s final series. Matt joined the world’s biggest motoring show as a co-host in 2016 and this will be his fourth series. His tenure on the show has seen him traverse the globe to bring the world’s most exciting cars to our screens and test himself to the limit with challenges that have ranged from helping NASA land a priceless research plane, and becoming Top Gear’s very own 007 to building the world’s fastest tractor.
Matt LeBlanc said: “My experience on Top Gear has been great fun. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the whole team. However, the time commitment and extensive travel required to present Top Gear takes me away from my family and friends more than I’m comfortable with. It’s unfortunate, but for these reasons I will not be continuing my involvement with the show.
I will forever be a Top Gear fan and I wish the team continued success. Thanks for a great drive.”
Series 26 will debut on BBC Two soon.
For series 27, Lancashire lads Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff, will join current presenter motoring journalist and racing-driver Chris Harris.
