‘Top Gear': James May QUITS, Declaring He Won't Return Without Jeremy Clarkson

James May has revealed that he won’t be returning to ‘Top Gear’, unless Jeremy Clarkson is by his side.

While the presenter is refusing to rule out ever fronting the motoring show again, he’s made it quite clear that he won’t be doing it unless it's alongside the sacked presenter.

It’s believed that the search for a new host is on-going and bookies have named Dermot O’Leary and Chris Evans as potential replacements.

It's the end of an era for 'Top Gear' fans

However, James’s new comments leave the future of the show unclear.

It also appears that he may not be singing from the same songsheet as BBC boss Kim Shillinglaw, who discussed the show's return to our screens earlier this week.

Kim also revealed that the Beeb are planning to screen Jeremy’s last scenes, even though the footage is “incomplete”.
