Chris Evans has announced on twitter today that he is leaving Top Gear after just 1 series.
Stepping down from Top Gear. Gave it my best shot but sometimes that's not enough.
His co-host Matt LeBlanc is expected to stay on for the next series. Evans isn't expected to be replaced, for anyone who's seen the show this series this is hardly unexpected. With low viewing figures that have gotten worse over the 6 episodes, and Evans has featured less and less following negative feedback.
Overall the show has improved, but still the final show had less than 2 million viewers on Sunday. That could have something to do with the Football in Paris, who schedules a car show against the Euros anyway?
