Former Top Gear trio, Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond are reported to have held talks with ITV about working with the commercial broadcaster having parted ways with the BBC.

Clarkson, who left the BBC following an attack on a producer, and was followed by his co-presenters Hammond and May soon after, are rumoured to be set to launch a new programme in an effort to recapture the success of Top Gear elsewhere.

According to The Daily Mirror, the three apparently visited ITV channel director Peter Fincham’s home earlier this week alongside Andy Wilman, Top Gear’s former executive producer.

An ITV spokeswoman said: "We haven't commented, and aren't planning to comment, on the continual Top Gear speculation which is swirling around the television industry."

Top Gear is set to be revived with a new presenting team it is expected.
