American actor Matt LeBlanc has been confirmed as a host on the new Top Gear and it looks like automotive journalist Chris Harris will be next.
Host Chris Evans, who has recently been in the spotlight for apparently getting car sick during a lap in an Audi R8, posted a photo in twitter welcoming LeBlanc to the show but saying that he’s “late for the weekly TG production meeting.”
Sitting just down the table from Evans in the photo is Chris Harris, a journalist that has written for a variety of publications and websites including Autocar and Evo. He first presented YouTube videos on the U.S.-based Drive channel and more recently on his own channel.

The Telegraph reports that Harris has been confirmed as a new presenter for Top Gear, but BBC has only officially announced LeBlanc. Noticeably absent in Evans’ weekly production meeting photo are Sabine Schmitz and David Coulthard, both of which were rumored to be joining the team.
The BBC said that LeBlanc will join production immediately on the show and that “additional Top Gear cast members” will be confirmed shortly. Harris is expected to be the next name confirmed.
