THE NEW VERSION of Top Gear featuring Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc hasn’t even made it to air yet – and it just can’t stop making the headlines.

But now there’s some good news: Chris and Matt are coming to Ireland.

And specifically… they’re taking a tour around the Dingle Peninsula this weekend

Speaking on BBC Radio 2 this morning, Chris Evans said:

Mr LeBlanc and I are going to Ireland on Friday to make a Top Gear film – actually a couple of Top Gear films that will be combined.  We’re thinking of going to the Dingle area.

When he was told by his co-host about the wonderful pubs and restaurants around that area of the country, he said:

We haven’t got time for any of that! Technically we’ll be working obviously, but we’ll try and eke out some time for some socialising.

Then he went on to mention Killorglin – saying that was a potential stop off point as well.

Needless to say, they won’t be short on scenery

The new show is set to start on BBC Two in May, so it’s not known exactly when this trip to our own backyard will air.

But we have a feeling Kerry’s going to look mighty when it does

Enjoy your time here, lads.
