The first celebrity guests who'll be putting in an appearance on the new series of ‘Top Gear’ have been announced.
The hour-long episode will introduce fans of ‘Top Gear’ to the show’s new presenting team, which also includes Formula One team boss Eddie Jordan, racing driver Sabine Schmitz, motoring journalist Rory Reid and YouTuber Chris Harris.
Both Gordon - who has appeared on ‘Top Gear’ twice previously, in 2002 and 2006 - and Jesse will be interviewed by Chris Evans, as well as taking a lap of the new racetrack at Dunsfold Park in Surrey.
Further guests scheduled for later in the series are currently being kept under wraps, though Tinie Tempah has already recorded an appearance for a future episode.
Since Chris Evans took over the helm of ‘Top Gear’, following the controversial departure of Jeremy Clarkson, the BBC have repeatedly been forced to speak out over media reports that things were going poorly behind the scenes.
Meanwhile, Jeremy Clarkson - and his former ‘Top Gear’ co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May - announced that their rival motoring show, to be streamed on Amazon Prime starting this autumn - will be called ‘The Grand Tour’.
