A captain must go down with his ship. Chris Evans has quit being a presenter of his reboot of Top Gear as the BBC Two motoring show finished with doldrum ratings not seen since 2002. The revamp was doomed before even the key was put in the ignition, plagued by executive departures and reports of tensions between Evans and Matt LeBlanc.
In a tweet, the Radio presenter commented:
“Stepping down from Top Gear. Gave it my best shot but sometimes that’s not enough. The team are beyond brilliant, I wish them all the best”.
