When Top Gear was forced to reinvent itself following Jeremy Clarkson's tussle with a producer, the BBC announced repeat guest Matt LeBlanc would be joining Chris Evans as one of the programme's new presenters - a job he continued with even after Evans left.

Now he's announced he's going to leave show after the next series.

The BBC announced this news yesterday evening, with LeBlanc releasing a statement about his decision to leave the show.

He described his time on the show as "great fun", but admitted that "time commitment and extensive travel... takes me away from my family and friends more than I'm comfortable with."

Later adding, "it's unfortunate, but for these reasons I will not be continuing my involvement with the show.

I will forever be a Top Gear fan and I wish the team continued success.
