Matt LeBlanc Threatening To Leave 'Top Gear'


BBC's 'Top Gear' has been shrouded in controversy since the public sacking of former host Jeremy Clarkson, followed by the departure of him, plus co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May, And now it looks as though rougher roads are still ahead, The show relaunched in May 2016, to mixed reviews. It was recently announced that 'Friends' star and the shows' newest co-host Matt LeBlanc is now threatening to quit ahead of the second season, if his fellow host Chris Evans isn’t fired. It's rumored that Evan's diva-like behavior along with refusing to interact with the rest of thae cast are the major reasons LeBlanc wants him gone. Since LeBlanc is the main reason for the shows' boost in viewership it seems logical to fire Evans and bring someone else in to co-host.
