In a ritual dance most recently seen with Paul Pogba's return to Manchester United, Matt Le Blanc has said he's keen to be part of the second run of the all-new Top Gear. Speaking in LA, the loveable rogue said "There's nothing officially happening yet. Follow the BBC." Filming is due to start in September.
One can only imagine that Mr Le Blanc's agent has noted that Chris Evans' fee for the first run was at least £150k per episode. Mr Le Blanc will be aiming above the DG's presenter declaration threshold of £450k p.a., and I'm sure the NAO will make sure BBC Worldwide and BBC Studios are fully transparent in the matter.
