Chris Evans quits Top Gear to concentrate on radio

Chris Evans will not host the next season of Top Gear, but will instead concentrate on his BBC Radio 2 breakfast show.

He tweeted to say: “Full steam ahead then with Radio 2, CarFest, Children In Need, 500 Words and whatever else we can dream up in the future.”

Moments prior to that he announced he’s stepping down from Top Gear and that he gave it his best shot but sometimes that’s not enough.

Chris has been in the headlines for poor ratings on his first season of Top Gear, and this weekend it was reported he was being investigated by police over allegations of sexual assault. Today the Met confirmed that a woman had made an allegation of “non-recent sexual assault” against him on May 23. Police said the allegation related to “incidents in Tower Hamlets in the 1990s”.

“There have been no arrests and no person has been interviewed under caution,” Police confirmed.
