Top Gear In Crisis As Chris Evans 'Struggles To Talk And Drive At The Same Time'

The two fundamental requirements to be the host of Top Gear is the ability to talk and the ability to drive, usually at the same time.

Which is why the BBC show’s reboot with Chris Evans is said to be in crisis, as the 49-year-old star is reportedly struggling with this multi-tasking.

Well, that’s got to be awkward.

A source from the show revealed: “Chris is really struggling to master the art of driving and talking to camera, which is crucial.”

To add salt into the wound, the insider added to The Sun newspaper: “It’s a skill. Jeremy, Richard and James could do it no problem, in one or two takes.”

Chris bagged himself the role of host on Top Gear after Jeremy Clarkson was fired following a ‘fracas’ with a producer, with his co-hosts, Richard Hammond and James May, opting to leave.

This is by no means the first time that the new version of Top Gear has come under scrutiny, with the BBC already being forced to dismiss claims that their new-look show is having problems.

Another source had previously claimed: “The first time Chris went round the Top Gear track he crashed the car. Unfortunately for him it was a brand new Jag that had been lent to the show.”

Top Gear’s executive producer Lisa Clark also quit the show after just five months, with script editor Tom Ford set to leave at the end of his contract.

All in all, it looks like there are some big challenges ahead for the Top Gear team.
