    Season 26 starts Sunday Feb 17th. This will be Matt LeBlanc's last season before Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff take over. Only 5 episodes this season too.

    Does anyone actually watch it any more? Even the last couple of "proper" seasons got boring and predictable.

    I'll always watch a car programme over most other rubbish on TV even if it is not as good as it once was, I hope it doesn't die.

    The whole concept of the light entertainment motoring show needs a complete ground-up rethink, as dramatic as when the Clarkson, May, Hamster format first got underway. Tweaking the current BBC and Amazon formats just isn't working.

    I was reading that the new three have better chemistry in the studio than the last lot, so I might give it a whirl again.

    McGuinness, Flintoff and...?

    Not that it matters, much as I stopped watching it ~a decade or more ago (pre-Stig).

    Much the same here, stopped watching after the first Stig finished, but was bored way before that with only occasional viewing.
