Matt LeBlanc Wants Chris Evans Fired From Top Gear

Motoring TV

Is the Bromance over?

The revamped Top Gear isn’t going too well, to say the least. Only so-so reviews and a dramatically decreasing viewership is making BBC executives panic lately, raising speculation that something needs to change – and fast. According to a report from The Telegraph, host Matt LeBlanc is threatening to quit the show if his co-host, Chris Evans, isn’t fired first. Apparently the Bromance is over, or it was never there to begin with. Oh, the drama. Also, Evans role was also set to shrink already.

The report further claims that LeBlanc is "concerned about Evan’s rudeness towards other members of the team, with some suggesting he’s also frustrating to film with." Filming for the second series will get underway in just a few months’ time, hence LeBlanc demanding this major change now. Another source added that "The team does not gel and the atmosphere between the presenters is frosty. Matt’s indicated he won’t continue on any further series if Chris remains. He is far from the only one who is not happy." The BBC refuses to comment for now. However, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard rumors about trouble on set. It all began with LeBlanc’s drifting session in a Ford Mustang in front of The Cenotaph in Whitehall.

Evans wasn’t happy but we still think the whole thing was a publicity stunt. In any case, rumors regarding the two not getting along continued and, with the ratings results in, there’s a decent chance the BBC will make some sort of change. Will Evans be fired? LeBlanc? Or is this whole LeBlanc vs. Evans thing being blown out of proportion? We’ll find out in the near future.
