Sue to reach Top Gear?

It seems like there can be few people in the world who are not fans of the TV programme Top Gear, and it's irascible presenter Jeremy Clarkson. Clarkson has been hosting this top rating programme for many years but has recently lost his job after an altercation with a producer.

And who is in line to replace him? Sue Perkins, it seems.

Several papers have her as the favourite to take Clarkson's place - here's the Telegraph for example.

This suggests she has become a very very very big figure in television. She is best known these days for a cooking competition, The Great British Bake-Off, but also has a chat show with her old partner.

If she is now this big a TV star, it perhaps explains why she has cut back considerably on her Just A Minute appearances.

Good luck Sue!

Quite a lot of people have been recommended for the job. It won't flourish as Jeremy Clarkson was the life and soul of Top Gear. I'm really hoping he won't appear on JAM anytime soon.

Sue also has her own radio 4 panel game show (Dilemma). So that leaves her less time for other stuff.
