Matt LeBlanc reunites with Top Gear co-presenters to film new series

The Top Gear host was all smiles as he returned to the Top Gear test track – without Chris Evans


Matt LeBlanc is back filming at the Top Gear test track – without Chris Evans.


Something hilarious is happening at the Top Gear track if a new behind-the-scenes image of LeBlanc and co-hosts Rory Reid and Chris Harris dissolving into laughter is anything to go by. 

The BBC has shared a sneak peek of the presenters on the racing track having a giggle – and LeBlanc added on Twitter: “It was kinda funny.” No word on what the joke was. 

Conspicuously absent from the gang of presenters is former lead presenter Chris Evans, who stepped down after just one series.

Earlier this month, LeBlanc went back to work on Top Gear after signing a fresh deal with the BBC2 show.

Also hoping to revive Top Gear after a difficult introductory series will be The Stig, Sabine Schmitz and Eddie Jordan, who are all returning.


After making sure LeBlanc would remain in the driving seat, Director of BBC Studios Mark Linsey said in September: “Matt was hugely popular with Top Gear viewers last series with his humour, warmth and obvious passion for cars and for the show, so I couldn’t be more delighted that he’s agreed to come back and do more for us.”
