'Top Gear': Former Producer Lisa Clark Could Return Following Chris Evans' Exit

Lisa Clark quit the reboot last year, amid rumours of a fall out.

Former 'Top Gear' producer Lisa Clark could return to the show, following the departure of presenter Chris Evans.

Lisa quit as executive producer of the BBC Two motoring series in December, less than five months after being hired to lead the relaunch, amid rumours she could no longer work with Chris.

Now that the Radio 2 DJ has stepped down from his role, reports have claimed Lisa may take back her old job to work Matt LeBlanc, who she was responsible for hiring.


Confirming her departure, Lisa Clark said at the time: “After an extremely busy five months I am moving on from 'Top Gear' to new projects which I will be announcing in the new year. I’d like to wish production all the very best with the show.”

Chris announced he was quitting the show earlier this week, after ratings for the final episode of the series plummeted to just 1.9 million.

Writing on Twitter, he said: “Stepping down from 'Top Gear'. Gave it my best shot but sometimes that’s not enough. The team are beyond brilliant, I wish them all the best.

“Full steam ahead then with Radio 2, CarFest, Children In Need, 500 Words and whatever else we can dream up in the future.”

The BBC have since confirmed Chris will not be replaced, with Matt becoming the lead presenter, with Rory Reid, Chris Harris, Eddie Jordan and Sabine Schmitz continuing to support him.
