Chris Evans quits Top Gear after one series

Chris Evans has announced that he has quit as the host of Top Gear after just one series.

Evans was the face of the show's new line-up, but after mixed reviews and lower ratings than expected, he has stepped aside. He confirmed his departure yesterday (July 4th), writing:

Although Evans has departed, the show's other five presenters Matt LeBlanc, Rory Reid, Chris Harris, Sabine Schmitz and Eddie Jordan - will return for the next series, which is due to begin filming in September.

According to BBC News, Evans' decision to step down was his own as he no longer believed he was a good fit for the show. 

Evans' single series as the host of Top Gear will be released on DVD later this month and is available to pre-order on the right-hand side of the page.
