BBC has revealed actor Matt Le Blanc is the new presenter of Top Gear!

Did anyone predict this?! We might (still) think of Matt as 'Joey from Friends' - but it turns out that in reality he's a total "car nut", and therefore the perfect choice as co-host.

Matt Le Blanc has been confirmed as one of the new Top Gear hosts alongside Chris Evans, 4th February 2016


Matt will host the show alongside Chris Evans, who took over after Jeremy Clarkson's sudden exit last year.

Speaking about his new role in the BBC press release, Matt said: "As a car nut and a massive fan of Top Gear, I'm honoured and excited to be a part of this iconic show's new chapter. What a thrill!"

What a thrill indeed! Although it might sound like a random announcement at first, Matt has been on Top Gear twice before, and also topped the 'Star in a Reasonably Priced Car' leader-board back in 2012. Who knew?

Chris Evans added: "Matt's a lifelong fellow petrolhead and I'm thrilled he's joining Top Gear. Acting out our craziest car notions on screen is a dream job and I know we'll both be debating some epic road trip ideas. We can't wait to share what we've been up to on screen later this year."

We can't wait for this!
