Chris Evans quits Top Gear

Chris Evans has resigned as host of Top Gear.

It follows poor viewing figures for newly-revamped series, which saw Evans brought in as host alongside Matt LeBlanc.

It had been reported "crisis talks" were taking place this week.

Evans has now tweeted: 

"Stepping down from Top Gear. Gave it my best shot but sometimes that's not enough. The team are beyond brilliant, I wish them all the best."
