Former Friends actor Matt LeBlanc has hailed Top Gear's global popularity, calling the motoring series an "international juggernaut".

"The show is a lot bigger than I thought it was," Le Blanc said. It's an international juggernaut of a show - it's massive.

"It premieres this Sunday, and by Wednesday it will be in 83 countries on six continents. It's just huge."

Headed by Chris Evans, the new incarnation boasts a line-up including four other hosts, plus The Stig.

A self-confessed petrolhead, LeBlanc's appointment marks the first time the programme has had a non-British host in its 39-year history.
