BBC admits mistake and names new Top Gear team, and there’s a chance to meet them on Tuesday!

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 new team!

The new team!

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
Ambulance Jack
Chippy Martin
Kennedy the Younger
“The Squire”
Henry “at last a name-related car joke that works in context” Ford

(*) This is a lie.
