Chris Evans 'excited' to be taking over Top Gear

Chris Evans has told journalists he is "very excited" to be taking over as presenter of the BBC's Top Gear motoring programme.

Speaking from his car outside New Broadcasting House in central London, the broadcaster said he was excited to be taking on the role, but there was no shortlist for his co-presenters.

"It's a very long list." Mr Evans said.

Evans also told Radio 5 Live's Nicky Campbell that he could "100% confirm" he would have a female co-star "but not for the sake of it".
