Matt LeBlanc joined by rapper Tinie Tempah on Top Gear

Matt LeBlanc has got a new "co-driver" on Top Gear.

The host, 48, shared a picture of him filming for the upcoming series with rapper Tinie Tempah, 27, on location in South Africa.

Pictured sitting next to each other in a blue car and both flashing a thumbs up to the camera, LeBlanc captioned the picture: "My co driver for a few days. Tinie Tempah going low."

LeBlanc and Tempah, whose real name is Patrick Chukwuemeka Oko gwu, have been filming together for several days, with Tempah tweeting a funny selfie to BBC Radio 1's Greg James on Monday showing LeBlanc pulling a terrified face at the wheel of the car.

It is unknown what they are filming but they could be going head-to-head in a Top Gear host-and-popstar challenge with Chris Evans and Sharleen Spiteri, as Evans shared a pictured with her in the country on Sunday.

Evans wrote: "Spiteri Top Gearing. South Africa. Top Girl."

South African news sources are reporting that the gang is filming in Durban.

Of the new seven-strong presenting line-up, only Evans and LeBlanc have shared images of themselves in South Africa but they appear to be living the high life, with LeBlanc sharing a picture of his arrival by helicopter.
