Chris Evans says footage should be cut Top Gear should cut Cenotaph film
Chris Evans has said that footage of a stunt filmed near a London war memorial over the weekend should not be broadcast.
Fellow show host Matt LeBlanc and a professional driver performed “donuts” near to the Cenotaph on Whitehall.
Speaking on Monday morning, Evans said: “That footage will definitely not go on the air, no question about it.”
He added: “We’re all mortified by it, so absolutely, one hundred percent, it should not be shown.”
Later in the same interview, he clarified he does not have final say over which scenes will be broadcast, but said he suspected that other members of the production team would agree the footage should be left out.
“It’s not my decision, but if it was my decision then I would say that particular scene shouldn’t be shown, and I think that everybody will agree,” he said.
Earlier in the morning, Evans apologised on air during his BBC Radio 2 breakfast show.
