Chris Evans to be joined by Eddie Jordan, Chris Harris and Sabine Schmitz on new Top gear

This is what the new Top Gear line-up looks like

Chris Evans has announced the full line-up of presenters for the new Top Gear series – with F1 pundit Eddie Jordan amongst the latest to join the team.

As rumoured, he’ll be joined by motoring journalist Chris Harris and Nurburgring legend Sabine Schmitz – as well recently-announced Matt LeBlanc.

The final member of the team is someone you might not recognise, Rory Reid. He’s a motoring journalist who works for Recombu.com – but, like thousands of others, he put forward his audition tape and made it through the auditions.

He told TopGear.com: “When I submitted my 30-second audition tape, I knew the odds were very firmly against me.

“To be the only person to make it through the open audition process makes me immensely proud. I’ve been a Top Gear fan for decades, but more than that, I live and breathe cars in a way that is perfectly compatible with the show.”

The new Top Gear has been receiving a lot of attention in the press lately, with senior members of staff leaving the show and rumours that Chris Evans wasn’t up to the job.

But on his Radio 2 show this morning, Evans confirmed that things were on schedule for returning to television in May.

It’ll face competition from the original Top Gear trio of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May – who are set to launch their own motoring show on Amazon Prime in the near future.

What does Twitter say?

It’s no surprise that the revelations have caused a frenzy on social media this morning. We’ll start with the presenters, who’ve no doubt been keeping the news a painful secret for a while…

And this is what you guys think…
