A week or two ago, the BBC issued details of the new Top Gear team, including ex-Friends start Joey LeBlanc, whoever he is. Reports have now surfaced showing that this was a naught but a ruse to put people off the scent of the real replacements.
The truth is, the BBC have hired Northgate to front the reborn show(*). Wow. Didn’t see that one coming.
If you want to come along and meet these soon-to-be household names, and perhaps get some autographs from the driving super-swordsmen, come along to this week’s practice at 19:30 in The Curfew in Bath. They’ll be very pleased to make your acquaintance.
The team will, of course, be given suitably humorous names for the show:
Chris “not a dancer” Evans (in a weird sunbeam lighting him differently from the others)
Kennedy the Box
Kennedy the Younger
Henry “at last a name-related car joke that works in context” Ford
(*) This is a lie.
