‘Top Gear' Needs A Female Touch, According To Rumoured New Presenter Jodie Kidd

Jodie Kidd might be sick and tired of being asked if she’s about to join Chris Evans on the all-new ‘Top Gear’ presenting team, but she does believe the show needs a woman’s touch.


The former model has been linked with the BBC motoring show ever since Jeremy Clarkson was sacked earlier this year, and those snaps of the pair enjoying a pint only fueled the rumours she was set to sign up.

Now, in an interview with the Daily Star, the 36-year-old has stated that the new series needs a ‘woman’s angle’.

“Women are buying cars – it’s the norm – so you need a woman’s angle,” she told the newspaper.

But she stopped short of giving anything away about her involvement in the reboot.

“If I had a pound every time someone asked me about that show I think I would be a millionaire right now,” she added.

Last month, Chris Evans confirmed the new ‘Top Gear’ presenting team will “100 per cent” include a female host.

When asked by Nicky Campbell whether a woman would be joining him on ‘Top Gear’, during an interview on BBC Radio 5 Live, the former ‘TFI Friday’ presenter responded: “Absolutely - but not for the sake of it. I can confirm that definitely 100 percent.”

As well as Jodie, who presents ‘The Classic Car Show’ on Channel 5, Formula 1 presenter Suzi Perry has also been linked to the presenting role.
