After a very difficult gestation period it appears that the new version of Top Gear might not be as bad as many critics have made out. The Sun has reported that after much deliberation, Chris Evans has picked Chris Harris, David Coulthard and German racing driver Sabine Schmitz to join him as the show’s new hosts.
This decision hasn’t come easy, with The Sun reporting that this choice led to executive producer Lisa Clark (the replacement for Andy Wilman) and script editor Tom Ford leaving the show. A source for The Sun said that Lisa’s departure had “been a real shock” and caused “a lot of upheaval” within the production team.
Although the press has reported that Harris and Schmitz are complete ‘unknowns’, we know just how good this show could really be. It’s hard to predict just how the new hosts will interact on camera, but with this level of talent and online support, new Top Gear could be a force to be reckoned with!
So, is the announcement of three new incredible hosts enough to convince you to tune into the new show? Let us know!
