Matt LeBlanc is moving on. Deadline reports the Top Gear star is leaving the BBC TV show after season 26.
LeBlanc joined the car-themed show in 2016 after long-time hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May left. LeBlanc hosts the UK series alongside presenters Chris Harris and Rory Reid.
My experience on Top Gear has been great fun. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the whole team. However, the time commitment and extensive travel required to present Top Gear takes me away from my family and friends more than I’m comfortable with. It’s unfortunate, but for these reasons I will not be continuing my involvement with the show. I will forever be a Top Gear fan and I wish the team continued success. Thanks for a great drive.”
