Chris Evans confirmed he's the new host of Top Gear on Twitter last night. He wrote: ''First tweet as new Top Gear host. I would like to say Jeremy, Richard & James are the greatest.''
Chris says he was 'thrilled' to get the job, describing the motoring show as his 'favourite programme of all time'. In a statement he said: "I'm thrilled, Top Gear is my favourite programme of all time.
"Created by a host of brilliant minds who love cars and understand how to make the massively complicated come across as fun, devil-may-care and effortless.
"When in fact of course, it's anything but and that's the genius of Top Gear's global success."
The final Top Gear featuring Jeremy Clarkson will be broadcast on June 28.
