Matt LeBlanc to leave Top Gear

After the upcoming series, Matt LeBlanc will be leaving Top Gear due, according to him, to the time it takes him away from friends and family. Sad news, as I personally thought he was the best of the three remaining presenters, followed by Chris Harris in second place. What do you think?

Let's hope Harry Metcalfe replaces him. I didn't mind LeBlanc but he never quite nailed it. Harry would be an awesome addition. Having said that, the gender equality team are probably busy influencing the recruitment

Its a shame as i really enjoyed season 2 with matt leading the show. If they end up with another Chris Evans leading it, il be switching off.

I am personally glad as can not stand the bloke and his American drool, just the sound of his voice grated on me.
Get some one else from UK to take his place and I will start watching it again.
Can't understand why a traditional English programme gets a Yank in to present it.
I watch Grand Tour and will tune back in to Top Gear when this bloke goes.

Get rid of Rory while they are at it to. The show needs to turn into something else and I would be happy if it turned into Chris Harris on cars...

I think that Clarkson and Co left some very big shoes to fill, it was entertaining and fun, three old codgers off having adventures with silly cars and a big budget.

Mat Watson from car wow would be excellent, very witty and a really good motoring journalist.

I liked him and would like to see Tom Ford get a spot. Agree Rory should go.

I agree he would make a good replacement. Need to bin Rory too though and I wouldn't like Tom Ford. So maybe just Mat and Chris would be fine

Maybe even get Vicki Butler in for the gender police?

Make it Chris HARRIS on cars as mardgee says. Never took to Leblanc as a presenter but I don’t mind him in other stuff. And as for Rory, he can right off.
