After much controversy, the popular motoring show, BBC Top Gear will be roaring back onto TV on Sunday 29 May 2016 for its 23rd season.
The noticeable difference is that the show is no longer hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. The new BBC Top Gear show is primarily hosted by British comedian and TV star, Chris Evans. Evans is joined Friends veteran Matt LeBlanc who will be co-hosting the new season of the motoring show. The rest of the team consists of Eddie Jordon as The Stig, Sabine Schmitz, Chris Harris and Rory Reid. The show has been shot in exotic locations like Morocco, Abu Dhabi, West Coast America and more.
If you haven’t heard already, Clarkson, Hammond and May have started filming on their own show as part of an exclusive deal with Amazon Prime. The new show starring the troublesome trio is dubbed The Grand Tour. It got the name because the show will be filmed around the world at awesome locations. The Grand Tour is set for an exclusive premier later this year. No news yet on how we will be able to catch these clowns on South African TV as Amazon Prime is unfortunately unavailable locally.
This is the first BBC Top Gear season in nearly 15 years which won’t be hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May who rebooted the show back in 2002.
You can catch the new season on DStv channel 120 at 20:00 on 01 June 2016.
