James May, 56, has praised the BBC’s Top Gear presenting line-up after he left the show alongside Jeremy Clarkson, 59, and Richard Hammond, 49, in 2015.

James told Good Morning Britain he still tunes in to Top Gear and enjoys it, admitting: “Am I allowed to say that? I like car shows.”
When quizzed about how he thinks Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff, Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris are doing at the helm of the series, he said: “I think they’re at the point… they’re almost as good as us, it’s amazing.
“I know Chris Harris quite well anyway, I’ve known him for 30 years probably.
“So I like it, and I like watching car shows, I don’t see why it’s a problem to have two big car shows.”
