Matt LeBlanc has agreed to a new two-year deal with the BBC to remain as Top Gear host, reigniting the show after it was throw into uncertainty with co-host Chris Evans stepping down after one series.

The BBC has confirmed LeBlanc will return with Chris Harris and Rory Reid as regular hosts while Eddie Jordan, Sabine Schmitz and The Stig will continue to make appearances.
