Top Gear’s James May ‘Might Quit TV To Become A Teacher’

By : Rebecca Knight |



Things seem to be going from bad to worse for Top Gear fans who have not only seen Jeremy Clarkson sacked by the BBC but now face the end of the show as they know it, after his two colleagues claimed they were now considering their future.

Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond come as a package deal and it seems both May and Hammond are making that very clear, and despite the BBC being keen to continue with the duo presenting Top Gear, they are doubtful at best.

May seems to think he will leave the show altogether and a change in direction could be on the cards, with teaching apparently top of his wish list at the minute.

He claimed:

I might want to do something completely different with my life, I’m quite old now. (I might do) something outside of cars, I always wanted to be a teacher.

Richard Hammond meanwhile took to everyone’s favourite social media site, Twitter, to claim that it was the end of an era and cast further doubt on Top Gear’s future.

So folks, it could well be the end of the programme as we know it, but don’t be too worried for Clarkson, given he could be set to pocket up to £20 million with rival broadcasters should he defect elsewhere.
