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".

Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans has told listeners he is "in the middle of the tests" for prostate cancer.
The presenter talked about it after former Small Faces and The Who drummer Kenney Jones, who himself survived prostate cancer, appeared on his breakfast show in support of a charity campaign.
Evans told listeners: "I've got to say I'm in the middle of a prostate issue right now."
He said he had gone to see a doctor after he couldn't stop peeing, and that he scared himself "half to death" when he researched the subject on the internet.
Evans said he used to be "scared" of medical tests but added he had "completely changed my tune on this the last couple of years".
