After a disastrous first season of the newly-revamped Top Gear, host Chris Evans has decided to pull the plug.
The BBC presenter announced overnight on social media that he has resigned from the program.
Stepping down from Top Gear. Gave it my best shot but sometimes that’s not enough. The team are beyond brilliant, I wish them all the best.

The Mirror reports the 50-year-old will not be replaced on the show, with co-host Matt LeBlanc to takeover as the lead presenter.
The news of Evans’ resignation comes amidst a police probe into claims he sexually assaulted a former colleague in the 1990s.
