Have the identities of the new Top Gear hosts been leaked?
The popular motor show is due to announce new hosts following the departures of Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond and, according to recent reports, the cat might have been let out of the bag.
Andy Wilman was reportedly overheard having a conversation with Jamiroquai lead singer Jay Kay in which he revealed that the new hosts would be Jodie Kidd, Philip Glenister and Guy Martin.
Kidd was the former host of Channel 5’s Classic Cars Show, while Glenister has previously fronted Channel 4’s For The Love of Cars and Martin has a CV which includes numerous TV presenting gigs, along with being a former motorbike racing champion.
Long-time host Clarkson left the show in March after a bust-up with one of the show’s producers, with co-hosts May and Hammond following suit shortly thereafter. The trio are expected to resume duties on a similarly themed show on a yet-to-be-revealed TV station.
