Top Gear has a completely new look, ladies and gents! Between Jeremy Clarkson’s dramatic exit, and Chris Evans replacing him - now 'Friends' star Matt LeBlanc will complete the line up.

Possibly the last person we’d have expected to host Top Gear - Joey Tribbiani … Ah, we mean - Matt LeBlanc - will be completing the line up, joining Chris Evans when the world’s favourite motor show returns in May.

LeBlanc will be the first ever non-British host in its 39-year history, says.

“Matt’s a lifelong fellow petrolhead and I’m thrilled he’s joining Top Gear,” Evans said. “Acting out our craziest car notions on screen is a dream job and I know we’ll both be debating some epic road trip ideas. We can’t wait to share what we’ve been up to on screen later this year,” The BBC said in a statement.

And how does Matt feel about the new gig?

“As a car nut and a massive fan of Top Gear, I’m honoured and excited to be a part of this iconic show’s new chapter. What a thrill!”
