Peter Andre To Host 'Top Gear' Rival For ITV, 'It's Me Or The Car'?

Peter Andre is reportedly channelling his inner Jeremy Clarkson, and fronting a brand new car show for ITV.


New reports suggest that Peter, who is the current favourite to win the new series of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, has already shot a pilot episode of a new show called ‘It’s Me Or The Car’, which it’s claimed will act as a family-oriented version of ‘Top Gear’.

An insider tells The Sun: “It’s a big-money deal for Peter. It’s still in the pilot stage at the moment but the initial signs are promising.

“It’ll be like ‘Top Gear’ for all the family. Peter’s very excited.”

The source also suggests that the new show could be a move to try and keep Peter at ITV, for whom he’s already hosted ‘60 Minute Makeover’ and appeared on a practically innumerable amount of reality shows.

The insider continues: “There’s a general feeling at ITV that his Strictly stint could turn into something more permanent on the channel.

“This opportunity is very much a tactical move to keep him on the channel as well as making a new television show.”

Peter isn’t the only star about to get behind the wheel of a new motoring project, though, with Dermot O’Leary about to host a new car show for the BBC, titled ‘The Getaway Car’.

Chris Evans will also be fronting a new series of ‘Top Gear’ next year, while Jeremy Clarkson and his former co-presenters have landed their own new show, which will be streaming on Amazon Prime.
