Chris Evans fuels Jenson Button Top Gear link

By Kerri-Ann Roper

New Top Gear host Chris Evans has added to speculation that Formula One driver Jenson Button is to join the TV show.

BBC Radio 2 DJ Evans read out a speculative news story on his morning show, which alleged that Button was in talks with the BBC to co-present the show.

"Well, I wonder what's going on there," Evans said.

He went on to quote the original newspaper article saying: "They say an announcement is imminent... really... well I'll try and find out for you."

Neither Button's spokesman nor the BBC commented on the speculation.

Button's PR camp, via McLaren, said: "Jenson is contracted to McLaren for next year."
