Jenson Button to join Top Gear?

25 September 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Jenson Button has sparked speculation he's set to join 'Top Gear'. The Formula 1 driver has hinted he could be set to join host Chris Evans on the revamped BBC car show after dodging questions about whether or not he's planning to retire from the motor sport. He said: ''You're just going to have to wait a little bit longer. I'll be happy next year, that's the important thing.'' BBC Radio 2 DJ Chris also added to speculation by telling listeners there were ''rumours of a 'Top Gear'-related press conference in Suzuka'', where Button will be for the Japanese Grand Prix this weekend. »

The Saturdays' Mollie King thinks she should be on the new Top Gear line-up

7 September 2015 5:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Rochelle Humes has been making a name for herself as a TV presenter in recent times, and now her bandmate Mollie King has suggested a surprising TV role.

"I think I should be one of the next Top Gear presenters," she told Notion magazine. "Think about it, it's perfect. Nobody would see it coming.

"Women are obviously better drivers than men, for a start; so I'd be bringing skill, but I think that show needs a bit of girl power."

We think she's joking. Having said that, new host Chris Evans has mentioned on several occasions that he expects to hire at least one female presenter as part of his rebooted Top Gear lineup, but Mollie's probably not high up on the list.

Suzi Perry, Dermot O'Leary and Formula 1 star Jenson Button are among the names being bandied about as potential Top Gear co-hosts, while Jodie Kidd has taken her name off the list. »

BT didn't even consider Jeremy Clarkson's new show: "It just wasn't right for us"

26 August 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

BT has said it didn't even consider bidding for Jeremy Clarkson's new motoring show.

Clarkson and his fellow former Top Gear presenters Richard Hammond and James May have signed up with Amazon Prime in a deal which includes a whopping budget of £160m - working out at around £4.5m per episode.

BT Sport and TV managing director Delia Bushell told The Guardian: "To be honest I didn't consider it. It just wasn't right for us."

She went on: "It's a fantastic franchise, but it made more sense for a global player like Netflix because Top Gear has huge Us revenues as well."

Clarkson was axed from the BBC's Top Gear earlier this year after verbally and physically attacking producer Oisin Tymon.

Chris Evans will replace Clarkson as the lead host, and has been backed by the show's departed producer Andy Wilman.

Auditions are currently being held for Evans's co-hosts, »

On Friday, Aug. 7, a spokesman for the race car driver told the BBC that anesthetic gas may have been used to knock the couple out so the burglars could sneak in undetected.

Ex–Top Gear Trio Will Make a Car Show for Amazon Prime

30 July 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jeremy Clarkson has found his post-punch project: Alongside fellow ex–Top Gear hosts James May and Richard Hammond, the irascible Clarkson has signed on to host a new automotive series on Amazon Prime, which will start streaming sometime next year. It's a savvy move, contractually: The non-compete clause in the trio's old BBC contract apparently only forbade them from signing with a competing British channel for two years, and said absolutely nothing about working with the content-producing arm of an American logistics company. Meanwhile, we now know how Top Gear will hope to survive without the three ex-presenters: BBC Two has tapped Chris Evans (not that one) to host the long-running car show, with Formula 1 driver Jenson Button rumored as a potential co-host. As long as neither of them assault a producer over a lack of hot food, they should be fine. »

Chris Evans will reunite with his Big Breakfast producer Lisa Clark on Top Gear

30 July 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Chris Evans is making himself feel at home on Top Gear - he's brought in his former Big Breakfast producer to work on the revamped show.

Lisa Clark is the latest name to join the BBC's forthcoming rebrand of its popular motoring show, following the departures of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.

Evans said: "Lisa is as good as it gets when it comes to making big, important television shows. She's funny, sassy, super experienced and has always absolutely loved cars."

Clark leaves her production company Pett behind to join the show, but says she is "confident" the business she set up with Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer will "continue to make original and probably funnier shows" without her.

She added: "This is an incredibly exciting and challenging opportunity, which I couldn't resist."

Formula 1 star Jenson Button is tipped to be one of Evans's co-hosts on the new Top Gear, »

Top Gear without limits: Is Clarkson, Hammond and May's Amazon deal really good news for fans?

30 July 2015 4:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

And on that bombshell...

Bringing months of speculation to an end, Amazon Video announced today (July 30) that it has struck a deal with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May - late of BBC Two's Top Gear - to front a new motoring series, one exclusive to Prime subscribers.

ITV, Hulu and Netflix (perhaps the market leader when it comes to online originals) were all reported to be bidding for the boys, but in the end, it was Amazon's VOD service that came out on top - and of course, this isn't the first time it's revived a dormant BBC format, with the drama series Ripper Street also benefiting from Amazon's deep pockets.

Regardless of what some may think of Hammond, May and particularly Clarkson - his attack on Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon appeared to confirm certain critics' worst assessments of the man - today's announcement would appear »
