Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May have finally announced the name of their Amazon car show, titled The Grand Tour, the name trending on the likes of Twitter and Facebook.
Not to be outdone by his rivals, Chris Evans and co have attempted to steal the limelight back, announcing the start date of the newly revamped Top Gear.
The show, which features Matt LeBlanc, Eddie Jordan and Sabine Schmitz as Evans’s co-presenters, will finally return to the BBC in just a few weeks, on Sunday, 29 May.
Fans eagerly anticipating the show’s return have already seen the new hosts in action via three previously released trailers, one of which poked fun at Evans’s car sickness.
Meanwhile, for the first time, Top Gear will also have a spin-off show, titled Extra Gear. It will be available to watch via the BBC’s digital-only channel, BBC Three.
Also joining Top Gear are the likes of motoring journalist Rory Reid, YouTuber Chris Harris, and - of course - The Stig.
