Twitter reacts to Matt LeBlanc bombshell

Matt LeBlanc Top Gear

Crisis? What crisis? After weeks of rumours and negativity surrounding the relaunch of Top Gear, the news that American actor Matt LeBlanc is to be a co-presenter of Top Gear has dominated social media for the past hour.

Within minutes of the breaking news, Twitter was filled with witty one-liners and Vines. From baby marsupials to a ‘Porsche-a’, these are the tweets that caught our eye.

BBC Three remembers the time LeBlanc dropped a subtle hint…

Then there’s the inevitable reference to a baby kangaroo…

And the Porsche-a…

We understand this chap appeared alongside LeBlanc in a little-known show called Friends…

The Daily Telegraph gets in on the act…

Bravo, Daniel Switzer. Bravo.

Oh, and well done Chris Pollitt, too…

Simon Harris is feeling a little nonplussed by the whole thing…

Meanwhile, Lauren Cain is shedding a few tears…

So what do you think? Is Top Gear in safe hands? Let us know.

Has an unhealthy obsession with cars of the 80s and 90s. Doesn’t really do supercars. Not a huge fan of sports cars. But loves the undervalued and the underwhelming.

Is probably a bit strange.
