Chris Evans has got a new Friend. 

The BBC has announced that Matt LeBlanc will join Chris Evans on the new series of Top Gear.

No, really.

Having previously set an unbeaten lap time in the show's Star in a Reasonably Priced Car slot, LeBlanc is no stranger to making-cars-go-quickly-whilst-talking.

"As a car nut and a massive fan of Top Gear, I’m honoured and excited to be a part of this iconic show’s new chapter," said Matt. "What a thrill!"

"Matt’s a lifelong fellow petrolhead and I’m thrilled he’s joining Top Gear," added Evans. "Acting out our craziest car notions on screen is a dream job and I know we’ll both be debating some epic road trip ideas. We can’t wait to share what we’ve been up to on screen later this year."
