Eddie Jordan poised for Top Gear - reports

Former F1 team owner and BBC F1 pundit Eddie Jordan poised to link up with Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc on new-look Top Gear
Former F1 team owner and BBC F1 pundit Eddie Jordan is to become the third presenter on the new-look Top Gear television show.

Jordan is expected to link-up alongside Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc, with the Guardian reporting that 'an insider' had said Evans and Jordan have 'known each other for decades' and that Jordan's 'expert knowledge would be a major asset for the show'. A deal is now said to be 'almost certain to be finalised in the coming days'.

German racing driver Sabine Schmitz and motoring journalist Chris Harris are also set to sign on, it is alleged, as the BBC finalises changes following the exit of Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond.

The BBC has declined to comment on the reports.
