8 May 2016. Stick the date in your diary. Chris Evans (aka Jeremy Clarkson v2.0) has confirmed that Top Gear will return to the BBC on the second Sunday of the month, just a few days after filming finishes on 5 May.
Speaking on Saturday Kitchen on the weekend, Evans also revealed that shooting for the new series was already underway, though he still hasn’t revealed who his co-presenters are. "By the time we hit the air on May 5, we'll have 32 films in the can as they say," Evans said. "We're going to America to make our first inter-continental in January [and] making another film next week."
Clarkson, meanwhile, is being sued for racial discrimination.
