Is this the new Top Gear line-up?

After weeks of speculation, Top Gear's much discussed new line-up may have been leaked. 

According to The Sunday Express, the BBC is currently working on a dream line-up of Jodie Kidd, Philip Glenister and Guy Martin to take over the car show following Jeremy Clarkson's now infamous 'fracas.' 

The leak comes after the show's co-creator Andy Wilman (who also quit last month) was apparently heard chatting about the new line-up over a pint. Which, we'll admit, probably isn't the most solid of reports to base speculation on. But then it definitely adds up, especially considering recent paparazzi shots of Clarkson enjoying a liquid lunch with Kidd.

"So basically, I really wanted steak for dinner... but they DIDN'T have any steak..."

Who knows? To be honest, we're more excited by the fact that Andy Wilman was actually sharing a pint with Jamiroquai singer Jay Kay when the apparent leak happened, which is interesting because... firstly, Jay Kay, and secondly, the funky hat wearing singer was one of our dream picks for the jump himself.
