The BBC are considering having a different presenter for each new episode of Top Gear, following the departure of Jeremy Clarkson.
The show may take on the ‘Have I Got News For You’ model, with a new presenter joining Richard Hammond and James May each week.
Although both Hammond and May hinted that they may not continue to host the show without Clarkson, the Independent reports that the BBC have offered both £1 million contracts to return to the motoring show.
Clarkson’s contract was not renewed after his infamous “fracas” with producer Oisin Tymon, but he was reunited with his former Top Gear colleagues for the first night of their ‘Clarkson, Hammond and May: Live’ tour in Belfast last week.
At the show, Clarkson told the audience:
We’ve had a lot of interest in our TV show from all around the world. Who knows what will happen.Advertisement
Jodie Kidd, Philip Glenister and Guy Martin have all been linked as potential hosts for Top Gear in recent weeks and, although it would offer an interesting twist on the format, it just wouldn’t be the same without the terrible trio.
