LeBlanc to leave Top Gear

June 1, 2018

Matt LeBlanc has confirmed he will be leaving his Top Gear presenting duties after the next series.

The Friends actor began presenting the BBC flagship show alongside Chris Evans in 2016. LeBlanc went on to front the show with Rory Reid and Chris Harris when Evans left after his first series.

LeBlanc said that despite Top Gear being “great fun”, the “time commitment and extensive travel… takes me away from my family and friends more than I’m comfortable with.”
