Top Gear's Evans says he's sucking diesel with LeBlancWednesday 25 May 2016
New Top Gear host Chris Evans has joined co-presenter Matt LeBlanc in dismissing reports of a rift between the duo, saying that he has learnt a lot from working with the former Friends star.
The show returns to screens this Sunday and speaking at the launch event at Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey, Evans described LeBlanc as his "wing man". He said he found the American actor's dedication to making the show work remarkable.
The new line-up, minus Matt LeBlanc, who is currently filming his comedy series Episodes
"He's worked on one of the biggest shows of all time and to make a show like Friendsyour work ethic has to be supreme," said the broadcast veteran.
"The overriding thing that hit me first was how much he's prepared to work to make the job a good job. He never looks at his watch or says 'Can we go?'."
Chris Evans - Relieved show is about to air
Earlier this week, LeBlanc described rumours of a personality clash between himself and Evans as "a big load of bulls***".
LeBlanc was unable to attend the press launch due to filming commitments on his BBC comedy series Episodes, but he sent a video message, in which he expressed his pride about what he, Evans and the rest of the team had achieved.
Matt LeBlanc filming in Kerry last month
"It's great that the show continues to prompt so much global interest, even before we have shown the first episode," said LeBlanc. "I've had an amazing and crazy few months since joining Top Gear. We've accomplished a lot and I'm extremely proud of it."
With the new series premiering on BBC Two on Sunday at 8pm and RTÉ2 half an hour later, Evans said he is relieved that the wait is almost over.
"It's the cork off the bottle, because all the pressure has been building up," he said. "So I just want the first show to get out there, get it on the air and then get on to show number two. We are already making it and we finish it tomorrow."
Dubliner Eddie Jordan, who is a former motorsport team boss, motor racing driver Sabine Schmitz and YouTube car reviewer Rory Reid are also set to star alongside Evans and LeBlanc as part of the new Top Gear line-up. The new series will air in 83 countries over six continents in a 72-hour period.
Everyone can appreciate the restorative power of getting outside, forgetting work and phone screens for a few hours, and getting back to nature.
Care to take it up a notch?
Let’s be real. The best way to truly, deeply embrace nature is by getting back to our body’s natural state, too.
Yep, we’re talking getting naked. Naked in nature.
That’s exactly what Instagram account Naked in Nature celebrates. They ask any of their followers who are up for getting nude to submit their photos of going full-on natural, sharing stunning images of naked bodies in front of incredible natural sights.
Because there’s nothing quite like feeling the cold mountain air on your naked bum.
Or standing at the edge, exposed to the elements.
Is there anything as refreshing as a skinny dip?
Or a skinny, erm, hike?
We know it’s a bit out there.
But we truly think naked travel might be the way forward.
It’s one way to avoid excess baggage fees.
And it’s the best way to feel entirely free.
To escape from your daily life.
And get back to the wonders of nature.
We’re honestly considering dropping our clothes for our next sightseeing trip.
We probably won’t take pictures though.
As inspiring as these ones may be.
Definitely beats our holiday wardrobe.
So go on, get naked and get out in nature. It’s one way to achieve true calm and freedom
