We may only be two episodes into the new-look Top Gear, but it seems already that its fans have had enough.

Episode two also featured actor Damian Lewis, singer Sharleen Spiteri, folk musician Seasick Steve, and British rapper Tinie Tempah.

Viewers also seemed pretty impressed with the the on-screen chemistry between Tinie and Matt LeBlanc with their off-road race to Africa’s highest pub.

Only time will tell if producers actually act on any of this.
