image for Top Gear Back For Seventeenth Season - Was It Ever Away?
Top Gear... new series?

Popular motoring programme, Top Gear, returns to BBC2 this evening for its 17th season.

Presented by Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, the show is BBC2's most popular programme and it's best-selling show around the world.

It continues to pull in the audiences with its mix of fun and serious motoring reviews, despite a series of gaffes including Clarkson suggesting lorry drivers were prostitute-murderers and Hammond's 'joke' that Mexicans were all feckless.

EIF News & Features TV editor, Lizzie Celery, says: "Top Gear? Back? What, you mean it ever finished? I don't believe you... it always seems to be on as far as I can tell.

"It's like some perpetual petrol-head bonanza. Nope... I reckon it never went away and saying it's a new season is just a publicity stunt."

Make Ellis Ian Fields's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
