The internet reacts to Matt LeBlanc as Top Gear co-host

If there’s anything that’s captured the hearts and minds of the
British public over the last few months it’s the question of whether the
new Top Gear is going to be any good.

Today’s news that Matt
LeBlanc, yes that Matt LeBlanc, is to co-host the new series alongside Chris Evans hasn’t exactly done much to answer that
question – in fact it’s made it even more difficult to say.

But
the announcement has certainly caused a stir among the online community,
who have taken to Twitter in predictable fashion to announce their
views on the news.

Let the memes commence:

LeBlanc previously set the fastest celebrity lap time in the reasonably priced car when the show was hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May.

He’s also apparently quite into his cars so this could either be a stroke of genius from the BBC or a complete fail.
