Kidd And Martin To Join Evans On Top Gear

Jodie Kidd is the 1/3 favourite to join Chris Evans on Top Gear according to William Hill, while if the panel remains a threesome, it looks like it will be the Even money shot, Guy Martin, who completes the trio.

Other names that have been in the mix throughout the entirety of betting are Dermot O’Leary, who had been 5/4 favourite but now finds himself at 5/1 the same price as former 7/2 second favourite, Philip Glenister and just ahead of Sue Perkins at 8/1.

“Evans has announced that his final line up is close and as things stand, we think that Jodie Kidd and Guy Martin will complete the trio,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
