Here are the favourites to take over as the new Top Gear presenter

Did you hear that one about Nigel Farage and David Cameron being the new Top Gear presenters? Because they both resigned recently, and Chris Evans was fired and, and... do you get it yet? Oh, sorry. Yes. Because literally everyone is making it. 

While the BBC has reportedly said it isn't looking to hire anyone to replace the departed Evans, and will instead shuffle its pack of considerably talented individuals (we're looking at you, Rory Reid), the bookies still have a feeling another big name will be added to its roster between now and filming of series two.

With this in mind we consulted the good minds of Paddy Power, who've listed the runners and riders who could yet snap up the Top Gear presenting role.
