Former F1 Driver Jenson Button is the betting favourite to host the latest reboot of Top Gear

With rumours flying around that famous British motoring television series Top Gear will return for another new reboot, odds are now being offered on who will present the show next.

Former F1 driver Jenson Button is the favourite with betting sites to host the show with producers likely to want to have some driving expertise on the panel for a fresh start for the show.

Peak Top Gear years saw Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May host up until March 2015 with a whole host of presenters since then including Friends actor Matt LeBlanc.

The latest reboot of the show saw Chris Harris present alongside Paddy McGuinness and Andrew Flintoff until it was scrapped following a serious crash for Flintoff.

Now though BBC bosses may look at bringing the show back from a "rest" and Button looks like he could present it alongside Romesh Ranganathan and Steve Jones.

Top Gear is currently on hiatus after host Freddie Flintoff was seriously injured in a crash

Freddie Flintoff was one of the presenters in the current format of Top Gear and a serious crash during filming saw him suffer facial injuries and broken ribs.

18 months on from that crash sees Flintoff prepare England for their T20 campaign with his facial injuries still visible following the accident at a reported 130mph.

Flintoff does feature in the market to return to Top Gear for the latest reboot with bookies saying there's an 8/1 chance for it to happen.

Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris have been announced as hosts for new series Road Trippin

The BBC have announced their new road trip series Road Trippin with Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris fronting another car show on the network.

McGuinness and Harris return after leaving Top Gear in 2022 when the show was put on hiatus for a brand new series that sees them travel across Europe.

The series consists of three one-hour episodes and will air on both BBC One and the BBC iPlayer and could be a temporary replacement for Top Gear which remains on a rest.
