Matt LeBlanc has signed a two series deal to host Top Gear, beginning next year.

LeBlanc will be joined by Chris Harris and Rory Reid with regular appearances from Eddie Jordan, Sabine Schmitz and The Stig.

LeBlacc co-hosted the most recent series of Top Gear with Chris Evans, who resigned in July after falling ratings for the reboot of the iconic motoring show.

Clare Pizey is executive producer of the upcoming 24th series of Top Gear and Alex Renton is series editor.

Patrick Holland, Channel Editor, BBC Two said: "I am thrilled that Matt LeBlanc is returning to Top Gear. He’s a huge talent whose love of cars is infectious. I can’t wait for the series to return to BBC Two next year."
