The hills are alive with the sound of swirling rumour this morning ? the king of which being that cricket legend Shane Warne will trade leg spin for wheel spin as the host of a spanking new series of Top Gear Australia.
Journalists across Australia have worked themselves into a frenzy reporting Warne will film six new episodes of the local Top Gear show, to be aired on Nine sometime next year.
And at first glance the Aussie sporting legend seems a pretty good fit, with Warne?s stable of stunning rides ? including a sexy black Superleggera, a Ferrari 360 Spider and even a Commodore or two ? rivalling even Clarkson?s staggering garage and proving the king of spin is a closet petrol head.
We should know more soon, with a deal ?likely to be completed within days? according to Nine sources quoted in this morning?s papers.
So stay tuned.
TBH, I'd rather see Charlie Cox and two Charlie Cox clones hosting TGA than fucking Warney.
TGA will probably become a horrible cross between The Car Show and The Footy Show.
"Utter nonsense," said a spokeswoman for BBC Worldwide, which owns the rights to the franchise.
This ^. Besides which, if you have enough money to drag Clarkson away from the UK for a few months of the year (something even the Americans couldn't get him to do), why wouldn't you get Hammond and May, the TG3 make it work, not just Clarkson.TBH, I'd rather see Charlie Cox and two Charlie Cox clones hosting TGA than fucking Warney.
Its all bullshit everybody, BBC worldwide have themselves denied that Channel Nine have taken over TGAU
ABC's definitely more reliable, so i'd say this story's dead
THANK GOODNESS - Shane Warne = worst host ever
