Seems like someone at discovery channel has decided that Fifth Gear would be better without Tiff :(

From Tiffs Twitter:
"Unfortunately someone @DiscoveryUK has decided @FifthGearTV will be a better show without me. Sad time for me as I was pivotal in the creation of the programme but if you do like to see me having fun in cars the good news is I'll be doing a lot more on"

And confirmed on the FifthGear Twitter
"After 17 years on Fifth Gear, long-running presenter @tiff_tv will not appear in the series, but can be found at @Lovecars"
Real shame.
I hope this means that he'll be given a chance by The Grand Tour to do some moonlighting, and that Tiff will take advantage of such an offer. Tiff and VBH are the reason I started watching Fifth Gear.
Apparently DiscoveryUK is every bit as stupid as the parent network back in the US. Oh well - their considerable loss.
