‘Top Gear’ bosses are on the look out for a new producer to help turn the show around as viewers continue to turn off.
Despite reversing the decline slightly with the latest episode, show bosses reportedly feel the programme has lacked direction since executive producer Lisa Clark quit in December just five months into the job, after allegedly clashing with Chris Evans.
A source told The Sun: “Chris was in complete creative control for a long time and it hasn’t worked.
Huffington Post contacted the BBC, who told us they were recruiting for the new role in order to take the show to new heights next year.
A BBC Spokesman told us: "We’re adding a Series Producer to the team because Top Gear is a huge show and we have even greater ambitions for the next series."
Meanwhile, Matt LeBlanc - who has proved to be a hit with viewers - is in talks to extend his current contract, with this week’s show currently set to be his last.
If he was hoping to join the US version of the show, we have bad news: it’s been cancelled.
The BBC announced it was pulling the plug on the show yesterday, six years after it first aired on the History Channel.
