Matt LeBlanc has announced that he is going to leaveTop Gear after this series has ended.
It was in 2016 when Matt joined the popular motor show to replace Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May but after just a couple of series he has decided to leave.
Matt signed a two year dela just after Jeremy left the show to become a host but it seems that he doesn’t want to renew his contract.
In a statement Matt said:
‘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.’
How do you feel about him leaving?
He’s receiving a record breaking amount of money to appear on I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here but now Amir Khan has been said to be donating some of his £300,000 fee from ITV to charity.
The Sun broke the news and said that some of the money will be going to Barnardo’s which he is a brand ambassador of.
Barnardo’s chief executive, Javed Khan has said to The Sun:
“I am very grateful to Amir Khan for this fantastic gift and his continued support as an ambassador for Barnardo’s, which helps thousands of vulnerable children, young people, carers and parents every year.
“It’s exactly the generosity of people like Amir that make it possible for us to provide our network of vital services across the length and breadth of the UK. We wish Amir well in the jungle and will follow his progress.”
That; is so amazing of him.
