Fancy a new gig? Presenting Top Gear may be your calling…

Chris Evans and the new Top Gear team are holding open auditions to find a co-presenter for the show – with applications welcome from members of the public.
Evans said the auditions for the Top Gear role would be open to all. “Male, female, old, young, it doesn’t matter. The one thing that does matter if you’ve got to have a real appetite for cars, and you’ve got to know something about cars,” he told BBC1’s The One Show.
Evans said the audition was “not a stunt” and added: “We hope that there’s going to be an amazing response to this, not just in the UK but around the world.”
With a revamp promised, is this simply a stunt to work towards the re-launch, or a credible claim to find a co-star? I’m leaning towards the latter…might even give it a go myself…
