    James May has today (23rd April) confirmed he won’t be returning to Top Gear as it ‘just wouldn’t work’ without Jeremy and Hammond.

    James told the Guardian: “Me and Hammond with a surrogate Jeremy is a non-starter, it just wouldn’t work. That would be lame, or ‘awks’ as young people say.

    “It has to be the three of us. You can’t just put a surrogate Jeremy in and expect it to carry on. It would be forced. I don’t believe they would be stupid enough to try that.

    “It doesn’t mean I won’t go back, we may all go back in the future. It might just be we have a break from it. I don’t know.”

    We guess that means Richard Hammond won’t be returning either. It seems Top Gear won’t ever been the same without presenter Clarkson in the mix.
