Chris Evans has announced he is not interested in taking over from Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear after he became favourite to take over the show.
He tweeted: “I can categorically say I am not and will NEVER be running for office. Pls discount my candidacy.”
The BBC Radio 2 presenter has been tipped as the hot favourite to take over the TV job from Clarkson, with William Hill offering odds at 2/1.
Jeremy Clarkson, however, remains suspended from the position after a ‘fracas’ with a producer.
Re @SkyNews Top Gear debate. I can categorically say I am not and will NEVER be running for office. Pls discount my candidacy. .
