Chris Evans compares Top Gear job to Doctor Who: “big shoes to fill”!

New Top Gear host, Chris Evans has compared the BBC motoring show to Doctor Who, explaining he has “big shoes to fill”.


Since Jeremy Clarkson was sacked for punching a producer, TV presenter, Chris Evans has taken over and he’s getting a bit nervous about his new job.

Chris Evans, 49, has said it’s an even more significant move than taking over from Sir Terry Wogan on the Radio 2 breakfast show.

Chris explained: “There have been 34 presenters before me, so it’s a bit like Doctor Who. When I took over Terry Wogan’s Radio 2 show people kept staying I had ‘big shoes to fill’ and they’re saying it again now.

“By the way, Jeremy is very tall, so they’re even bigger shoes.”

He continued: “This is, without doubt, the most challenging thing I have ever done in my career.”
