Clarkson Odds On To Get On His Bike…Evans Favourite To Replace Him!

Jeremy Clarkson is odds on to leave Top Gear as more details of the ‘fracas’ have emerged. William Hill make Clarkson 5/6 to fail to return to the show for the 23rd series and make Chris Evans their 3/1 favourite to take over the mantle should he leave.


“It is now looking like the fracas was a full blown barney and it seems that it is more likely than ever that Jezza could leave the show that he has become synonymous with over the years,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Despite claiming he has no interest in the job, Chris Evans has been backed into favouritism once again to take over should Clarkson leave. He fits the mould perfectly given that he loves cars and fits the Top Gear demographic perfectly.”


Steve Coogan is a 5/1 shot to take over from Clarkson with Johnny Vaughan 11/2 and Chris Moyles 8/1.


To take over from Jeremy Clarkson: 3/1 Chris Evans; 5/1 Steve Cogan; 11/2 Johnny Vaughan; 8/1 Chris Moyles; 8/1 Tiff Needell; 12/1 Jimmy Carr; 12/1 Jodie Kidd; 12/1 Piers Morgan; 14/1 Suzi Perry; 16/1 Guy Martin; 20/1 James Nesbitt; 20/1 Jay Kay; 25/1 James Blunt; 25/1 Patrick Kielty; 33/1 Ben Collins; 33/1 Vernon Kay; 40/1 Rowan Atkinson; 66/1 Katie Price
