It seems Top Gear is going from strength to strength, down further into the doldrums as the revival of the show was attacked today by comedian Bob Mortimer, who warned the show was a “timebomb” and that the talent were “abusing their power”.
The attack comes from the fact that Mortimer runs a television production company with Lisa Clark, the shows former executive producer who quit last year. Clark left the show after five months, despite having worked with Chris Evans on his breakfast show The Big Breakfast, the latter’s behaviour hinted at the reason she resigned.
The BBC commented on behalf of Chris Evans: “He is a passionate presenter who commits his heart and soul into everything he does – whether his Radio 2 show, Children In Need or Top Gear – and we are extremely fortunate to have him leading the show”.
