Model Jodie Kidd Is The Frontrunner To Replace Clarkson On ‘Top Gear’

Since Jeremy Clarkson departed-slash-was kicked the hell out of Top Gear earlier this year, following a biff with a producer, the show’s future has been in a state of uncertainty. 
The BBC are determined to press on, given that, for now at least, it’s one of their most insanely successful and lucrative enterprises, so even after all the bad press, dumping it would be madness.
With Clarkson gone, and James May and Richard Hammond vowing not to return unless their old mate does, the network are revamping the Top Gear line-up, with three new hosts reportedly on the verge of being announced.
Per a report in the UK’s Daily Telegraph, model, TV personality and motoring enthusiast Jodie Kidd is at the head of its new “dream team” trio of presenters. 
Also in “advanced talks” to join the show are Life on Mars actor Philip Glenister, and motorbike racer Guy Martin. Kidd, of course, is no stranger to Top Gear:
When it was suggested, last month, that TV personality Sue Perkins might be stepping in to fill Clarkson’s role, she suffered a torrent of abuse that eventually drove her from Twitter.
If the internet could go ahead and not be horrendous to Kidd, that would be great.
