Is Chris Evans a suitable replacement presenter for Top Gear?

Print Friendly

It has been confirmed that Jeremy Clarkson has been sacked as Top Gear presenter after a BBC investigation found he did assault a producer in a row over steak and chips.

Clarkson may be popular with the audience, and the BBC really did not want to lose him, but this was a star who admitted he was on his final warning and a corporation that was under intense scrutiny over what its top talent can and cannot get away with.

According to well-placed sources, senior executives at the Corporation have been wooing Radio 2 Breakfast Show host and self- confessed ‘petrol-head’, Chris Evans in the hope he will agree to take over.

Evans, 48, has one of the most prestigious car collections in Britain, including a £12 million 1963 Ferrari 250GTO. Apparently bosses are keen to persuade him to sign up.

It is not clear whether Clarkson’s co presenters James May and Richard Hammond will remain with the programme or will join Clarkson on any new ventures.

What are your views? Is Chris Evans a suitable Top Gear presenter and replacement for Jeremy Clarkson? Or is there someone else you would prefer to see?

Lets face it he's just another yes man for the hierarchy at the top ,he hasn't got the charisma for such a program plus the whole point of Top Gear was the team they had on , they jelled as a whole and the banter was part of that , Chris Evans has neither the charm or pizzazz to complement the show , they would be better off loosing the title and making an inferior show or drop it altogether, it don't matter who they put on without Clarkson. May and Hammond they will never replicate the show again and will never be successful as it was,

I don't think that we can judge Chris Evans until we see what he can do, I think he has made a very good morning show, which I listen to every morning while getting ready for work. Lets see what he can do with Top Gear. though I doubt my brother would agree.

Chris Evans has been writing about cars for years in the mail magazine , has extensive car collection and he clearly is a knowledgeable petrol head and in my eyes has always been a fantastic DJ so he gets my vote .

Chris Evans is much livlier thatn Clarkson ever was.. i used to like him in hte earlier programmes but recently he has got so obnoxious, acts like he is royalty thinkin ghe can do no wrong... Chris will bring a new perspective to the show as well as being extremly entertaining.

I never watch 'Top Gear', so Chris Evans is a good choice as far as I am concerned.

If the presenter had an exclusive contract which meant they were unable to appear on other TV programmes, or comment about other topics outside of motoring issues, I would have hoped they would have chosen Katie Hopkins.

Unless the new presenters have as good a chemistry as Clarkson, May and Hammond did then the show will bomb just as it did in the American and Australian versions of TG.

Chris would be great alongside Brendan Coogan (Steve's smarter brother).
This partnership would suit the petrolheads and at the same tme be funnier and wittier than the previous team that were beginning to look a little dated.

I think Chris Evans was probably the only person who could have taken over from Jeremy Clarkson. he is a petrol head as well and loves all his cars. he is also a good mate of Clarksons so probably has his blessing. Clarkson has said it was his own fault he got sacked. I think Chris Evans will get some new fresh energy into the show...should be interesting!

Whilst everyone is focussing on Clarkson, spare a thought for the young producer who was involved, and reportedly off work with stress. Clarkson has the wealth and influence to get whatever work he wants, the young producer doesn't have that. I see Guy Martin is being proposed as one of the possible new presenters. I think he would be a great choice, as he has bags of personality, enthusiasm and has a passion for all kinds of engines, and is also very knowledgeable. Plus it's good to keep the biker element in the show as well.

I don't like 'Top Gear' and I don't like Chris Evans either. I like the comment from 'daydreams' below about Philip Glenister as a suitable candidate. The show's producers could then take the opportunity to give the show a complete re-think too - fresh start and all that.

I hear that Philip Glenister is now 2/1 favourite as Top Gear presenter following his successful C4 series 'For the love of cars'. Let's hope this doesn't result in his receiving hate mail as has happened to the lovely Sue Perkins,

No what ever Evans gets on like Radio 2 in mornings and one show he was sacked once by BBC ,and he takes over and ruins everything he does, we hate him such a gobsworth only thing if he does get it he will head straight into a brick wall and be the air for good, and we can have our radio back in the mornings like Richard Marley and also Topgear good luck .

Can we not have a program about cars which includes women presenters and is not pandering to middleage followers of "men behaving badly" and "the young ones". Top Gear is so last century - there are female racing drivers and also girls competing in top motorbike racing. What percentage of fast cars are own by petrol head females, I wonder.

If the programme is to continue at all why not with Chris Evans at the helm? As James May and Richard Hammond have already said they won't continue maybe a new format with 3 new presentrs will give this programme the breath of fresh air it so desperately needs.

I'm glad that Clarkson has gone as it will mean that the show will get a much needed freshen up. I like Chris Evans and he'd fit the bill but he's on record saying that he's not interested. Maybe its time for a female lead - how about Suzy Perry - she'd be great!

What about Vicky Butler-Henderson? Or Quentin Wilson? Chris Evans has already said he's not interested in taking it on. James Martin might be a suitable alternative...

Or, why not someone completely unknown? If you're starting from scratch again, it's a chance to redo things. It was funny, but it was getting a bit repetitive anyway... imho

I feel all this hype is academic. I hear that James May and Richard Hammond have only a month left on their contracts so all three of them will probably be snapped up by someone like Sky and produce a rebranded show on another channel.

Chris organises 2 huge car-fests a year in aid of charity and gets celebrities to donate huge amounts, he also writes a very good motoring column in the Mail on Sunday and has become a well liked radio presenter again. He has said though that he would not take on Top Gear which I think is the right choice. But who knows they might just decide to make a totally new motoring show which he would be ideal for.

Yes, he'd be perfect. He knows about cars and talks about them in a fun but informative way. It would take some of the 'laddishness' out of TG. I'd love to see TG get rid of Hammond, he's just totally irritating, but I love Captain Slow!

When Chris Evans took over from Terry Wogan I was not sure that it would work but I must confess he has made a good job of the Breakfast Show. As others have said, with a new team he would make a great Host for Top Gear but the team would need to very carefully selected.

It will all depend what the BBC decide the 'new' Top Gear will be as there is obviously an audience for a motoring programme of sorts. Will it be a re-hash of the current format, I.e. 3 middle-aged men acting like schoolboys driving very expensive cars badly round a track, or something totally new? I personally believe that the show has had its day and if the BBC want to carry on with it, it needs updating and a change of direction anyway. It's been a great money spinner for the BBC and they need to produce a programme that will earn the same amount if not more if the licence fee is to be eventually scrapped.

I think that Clarkson, Hammond and May should be replaced by a team who can get the best out of the cars they demonstrate. While I enjoy watching Guy Martin I feel that he is more into bikes. I think Jason Plato along with Tiff Needell, Vicki Butler – Henderson and of course the Stig would be an ideal line up, they are real nutters when behind the wheel, not afraid to speak the truth about any cars they drive and all have a great sense of humor (except the Stig of course). A dream team all round.

Although Chris Evans may have the passion and knowledge of cars, he has too dominant a presenting style to work alongside anyone else, you only have to watch the Friday edition of The One Show to see that. Any way he has said no
Other suggestions have been Damon Hill and David Coultard but they don't appear to be able to really enthuse people. Eddie Jordan would be good as would Guy Martin if he knows as much about cars as he does about bikes.

The show will not be the same at all, but, if the powers to be in high BBC places are going to ignore the licence payers and sack a person for airing his grievances even though he was not actually at work. If we MUST have a replacement then I think Guy Martin would be just the person.

Chris used to be the naughty boy covered by the media on every occasion that he stepped out of line or was outrageous BUT now he has transformed himself far more politically correct but STILL with a wicked sense of humour and a very strong understanding and love of cars he is spontaneous in his responses, he is fun without being over controversial.
