The BBC announced today that Eddie Jordan, Sabine Schmitz, Rory Reid and Chris Harris will join Matt LeBlanc and Chris Evans (Not Capt. America Chris Evans, Billie Piper’s Ex-) on the new version of the eagerly anticipated series.

Following the announcement, Katie took to Twitter to share a snap of the new team, alongside the caption: “Token-tastic. Where’s the disabled one?”

They even have a token American!

They forgot the Asian, The Homosexual, and The Transgendered!! Horrors!
Katie then replied: “Is being ginger (Red Head) officially a disability?”

Another person said: “Are you suggesting you should be part of the line up?” to which she hit back: “No. Although I am classified as disabled… joke…..imagine X”

While a different person shared: “@KTHopkins Why do you think the Stig always wears a helmet?”

BBC Release: It read: “The new team will cover the entire automotive spectrum and bring with them their own unique and very individual love of cars that will resonate with every type of Top Gear viewer from the family who enjoy the entertainment values of the show, to aspirational car lovers and fanatical petrolheads.”

Despite Chris Evans saying he’s “delighted” with the line-up though, fans of the show don’t seem overly impressed.

One person posted: “Top Gear line up is shockingly poor,” while another said: “Top Gear what are you doing? Eddie Jordon and Chris Evans? Are you trying to commit suicide? #TopGear #bbc #ratingsdownbeforeitstarts” (UK EXpress)
