Following the departure of Chris Evans at the end of the last series - who bowed out after receiving poor reviews and low ratings - Mark has insisted that the BBC aren’t looking to replace him, and instead will focus on the remaining members of the presenting team.
“Clearly they enjoyed the other Chris [Harris], and Rory [Reid] – they have told us that. All the elements were there of an ensemble rather than just focusing it on Chris [Evans], and I think that is evident in the way that we produced it.”
Since the ill-fated reboot wrapped up earlier this year, viewers have urged producers to put Matt in the spotlight for the next series, with Chris even heaping praise on his former co-host.
Meanwhile, presenter Rory Reid has admitted that changes need to be made to the format, while TV chef James Martin has been widely tipped to be joining the show.
