American actorist quits car show

The actor Joey Tribbiani has announced that he is step down from his role as “Matt LeBlanc” on the popular BBC sit-com, “Top Gear”.

Tribbiani is thought to be leaving the show to spend more time with friends in a pretend New York coffee shop that’s actually in Los Angeles.

The American actor first took the part of the American actor in 2016 and has been a hit with audiences for his heart warming portrayal of an American actor presenting a British TV show. Fans particularly liked his escapades such as driving cars, talking about cars, and talking about cars while driving them.

Tribbiani became “Matt LeBlanc” on “Top Gear” when the show was rebooted after the departure of the previous cast, “Jeremy Clarkson” (Donald Sinden), “Richard Hammond” (Warwick Davis) and “James May” (Miriam Margolyes). The re-invented show also introduced the characters “Rory Reid” and “Chris Harris” with his catchphrase, “Oooh, it’s oversteering a bit”.

The re-born programme also briefly featured Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans as “a twat”.
