Top Gear duo Chris and Matt 'the modern odd couple'

By Kerri-Ann Roper

Chris Evans has dubbed he and fellow Top Gear presenter Matt LeBlanc the "modern style odd couple".

The pair have completed their first challenge for the BBC show - a UK v USA race from London to Blackpool in Reliant Rialtos.

Evans said he wanted LeBlanc, best known for playing Joey in Friends, to join the Top Gear team because "he loves his cars".

"He knows so much about his cars, he's a brilliant driver and he's a world star, and that's very important for Top Gear," Evans said.

"We are very much like a modern style odd couple, completely different on first impressions but actually we've got an awful lot in common."
