Audiences numbers dropped from 4.4 million to 1.9 million with Evans presenting who said after this departure that the series had proved LeBlanc and Top Gear "were made for each other".

The BBC commented they were thrilled about his return as his, "love of cars is infectious." It must be nice to have someone who won't give a producer a black eye over food. 

Meanwhile said villain Jeremy Clarkson is gearing up for his Amazon Prime motoring show The Grand Tour which Clarkson's co-stars James May and Richard Hammond have been confirmed for too. The series will air on 18 November.
