New Top Gear trailer shows Matt LeBlanc having a Joey moment


It's just a short clip, but every glimpse of the new Top Gear is intriguing as the days count down to its much-anticipated launch.

This 40 second short, released yesterday, shows Matt LeBlanc struggling - Joey-style - to get into an Arial Nomad, a distinctive off-roader designed and built in Somerset, before taking it off for a dusty ride somewhere in Morocco.

It's just Matt - so there's no chance to analyse his much-discussed relationship, on and off screen, with Chris Evans.

The series was originally scheduled to launch on 8 May, but recent reports claim that it's been pushed back to 22 May - although that is now seemingly open to change as it would clash with the first semi-final of ITV's hugely-popular Britain's Got Talent. The trailer promises simply 'the end of May', so we'll have to wait and see.
