The actor and car fanatic is reportedly among producers’ top picks to front the BBC motoring show, as part of a “massive revamp”, coming next year.

"It also helps that he is considered a friend of the BBC.”

Best known for his role as DCI Gene Hunt in ‘Life on Mars’ and its follow-up ‘Ashes to Ashes’, last year Philip made his presenting debut on the Channel 4 show ‘For The Love Of Cars’, alongside car restoration expert Ant Anstead.

“There are more experienced hosts being considered, but they just think he would be a really good fit for next year’s ‘Top Gear’.

"They are planning a massive revamp, but at the same time they don’t want to reinvent the wheel - it still has to appeal to fans."

It was thought last week that Jeremy could be returning to the BBC to front one episode of ‘Have I Got News For You’, though it was later confirmed that he had pulled out of his planned appearance.
