Long time BBC MotoGP presenter Suzi Perry has denied that she will return to her former role, following the news that Jennie Gow will not be back for a second season.

After 13 years of covering motorcycle racing for the BBC, Perry decided to concentrate on other commitments for 2010.

That prompted the signing of Gow as 'the new face of BBC MotoGP' alongside commentators Charlie Cox and Steve Parrish, plus pitlane reporter Matt Roberts.

Gow's exit fuelled rumours that Perry might be coming back, but in postings on her Twitter account Suzi stated:

"It's not my place to talk about the [BBC MotoGP] line up for this season, but I can't do it. I remain totally passionate and besotted by it.

"I am sure the coverage will be in very experienced hands and I hope to visit a couple of races this year."

Following a question about her 2011 bike plans, the Gadget Show presenter added: "I'll continue for Telegraph + perhaps a few special reports for BBC."
