By Kerri-Ann Roper

Friends actor Matt LeBlanc has been named as a surprise addition to the new Top Gear presenting team.

The revamped version of the BBC show is due to air in May, with the American star joining Chris Evans for the new line up.

Evans confirmed the news as he tweeted a picture of himself, LeBlanc and The Stig.

LeBlanc said: "As a car nut and a massive fan of Top Gear, I'm honoured and excited to be a part of this iconic show's new chapter."

The actor is no stranger to presenting for Top Gear and recently hosted a spin-off called Top Gear: The Races.

Bookmakers believe a female co-presenter will be announced next and have German driver Sabine Schmitz as their favourite.
