New Top Gear is improving, says former presenter

By Sherna Noah

James May has given his seal of approval to the new Top Gear.

The latest series of the BBC motoring show - fronted by Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid after Chris Evans bowed out - ended in April.

May (54) told BBC Breakfast he had "tried to be quite philosophical about" the end of his run on the programme with Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond.

"What we've ended up with is us refreshing ourselves a bit and having a bit of a rethink about how we do it, making space for some other people to take over our old programme," he said, "where they're doing an increasingly good job of it." The Grand Tour host added: "I don't really see that anybody loses out."
