The BBC has announced it will air a two-part Top Gear special over Christmas, celebrating “the best and brightest from the Clarkson, Hammond and May era.”
Called Top Gear: From A to Z, the show will feature “astonishing footage, insider facts and quirky statistics,” using a word or phrase starting with each letter of the alphabet to illustrate a point about Top Gear.
The show will be voiced by comedian and one-time fastest Star In a Reasonably Priced Car, John Bishop. A number of celebrity guests will front various segments.
It isn’t known, though it would make sense, if any details about the new version of Top Gear, led by Chris Evans, will be revealed during the special or around its transmission. Filming for the new run has already started; Evans has been spotted at Dunsfold filming a piece on the McLaren 650S with Jenson Button, who previously ruled himself out of a permanent presenting role. As yet, there’s been no sight of anyone who might be a new co-host.
