The BBC have confirmed it will air the three remaining Top Gear episodes later on in the year.
BBC Two controller Kim Shillinglaw has confirmed the three remaining Top Gear episodes of the series will be shown after all.
The remaining episodes were postponded and Top Gear fans worried they might be axed – but fear not, they will be shown.
Kim Shillinglaw said: “There is no way I would not want the available material not to be seen by viewers.
“Top Gear is a show that I love, I genuinely watch it and I always have done.”
Shillinglaw also confirmed a new series is planned for next year. in a ‘new’ format – we guess that means presenters?
“We have got a great in-house team that has always made it and will continue to make it,”
Talking about future presenters, she said: “I am not really thinking about it in terms of gender.
“I have done a lot with female presenters when I used to work in science. That was something that across the piece that I really wanted to tackle. It’s a really open book on that.”
We will definitely look at women but it is not the driving priority. I have never approached an individual show thinking that is the way you cast it.
“It’s not been an easy year but it’s kind of creatively exciting what we are going to do, what we have to do. We have got to move the show on. That’s what we are going to do.”
