Clarkson's Final Ever Top Gear Airs on Sunday Night

By James O Malley on at

The final two Top Gear films featuring Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond are due to be broadcast this weekend.

The films were originally destined to be part of a normal Top Gear series but, umm, events took care of that. Here's what we can expect to see in the show's usual 8pm Sunday timeslot:

"The presenters immerse themselves in the world of classic cars, with Jeremy Clarkson in a Fiat 124 Spider, Richard Hammond in an MGB GT and James May in a Peugeot 304 Cabriolet. They also enter the realm of the sports utility vehicle as they find out what sort of SUV can be bought for just a few hundred pounds before putting them through a series of challenges."

Unlike normal episodes of Top Gear, this finale runs an extra 15 minutes long at the end.

As we now know, the next series of the car show will be presented by Chris Evans alongside a couple of yet-to-be-auditioned presenters (it could be you). Evans has since claimed that he has received the seal of approval from the old presenters.

There has also been speculation that following Sunday's broadcast we could hear the first announcement about the future of Clarkson, Hammond and May, who are rumoured to have been speaking to ITV and Netflix about making a new show. Announcing such a thing Sunday night would make sense to maximise the publicity for it - but it remains uncertain whether either of the companies have managed to sign a deal yet.
