Anita Rani Countryfile presenter on needing green space and being the city girl on the BBC country show Television

The pair were interviewed for the magazine by original Top Gear presenter Angela Rippon, who hosted the series in its first incarnation in 1977.

The legendary auto programme has seen its fair share of presenters behind the wheel.

The 41-year-old star will front the new series of the BBC motoring show alongside Paddy McGuinness, 45, and Chris Harris, 44, and he revealed that although he's "all for having a laugh and a joke" he and his co-stars will not "cross the line" with their comedy unlike former presenting trio Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond whose more risque jokes often landed themselves and the show in hot water and included an Ofcom investigation following complaints from viewers of racism.

What do fans think about the new show?

Top Gear continues on BBC Two.

The Randle decision comes one day after it was revealed that New Orleans had finally agreed to trade Anthony Davis . It will be interesting to see where Randle ends up, but there figures to be plenty of interest in him.

It seems to have had a positive response from the trailer. "Far better than the last series and already can't wait to watch next week", one enthusiastic viewer said on Twitter.

But, at the same time, certain Top Gear fans slammed former presenters Matt Le Blanc and Chris Evans, who first appeared on the show back in 2015.

What do the new Top Gear trio say about the new series?

Viewers took to social media to gush over the new series, making it clear that they were immediately taken by the banter between the three new blokes.

The new team were unveiled in October a year ago, flanked by a red Aston Martin DSB Superleggera and a blue Porsche 911 GT2RS. Don't get me wrong - there's humour in the show now. I'm so happy with what I've seen and am proud of it, I think it's looking awesome. All because no one takes testing cars as seriously as Top Gear. "Now let's start up this Great British machine and see what it can do!" "Well done and thank you @PaddyMcGuinness @harrismonkey @flintoff11 #crying #comedygold". "I've always been passionate about cars and I'm so excited to be joining the Top Gear team".

He said: "My agent came up and said, "Do you want to try out for "Top Gear"?' It's something we'd chatted about in the past". They're both brilliant, natural entertainers - and their mischief mixed with the most exciting cars on the planet is sure to take the show to the next level.
