Chris Evans vs Jeremy Clarkson
Picking a replacement for Jeremy Clarkson was never going to be an easy task, but you can understand why the BBC plumped for Chris Evans. He’s a petrol-head with a long history of hosting big shows but who still has that all important air of irreverence about him. That hasn’t stopped the Top Gear community getting nervous about the direction in which Chris will take the show. To help allay this trepidation we’ve put together this piece comparing Chris with the man he is set to replace. Obviously we’re checking up on their love of cars, but almost as importantly we’re taking a look at their disciplinary records and how their TV careers compare. Finally, there is a quick quiz to see if you can tell your Evans from your Clarkson.
