I can't even remember the last time I watched Fifth Gear.

I'd imagine the production team are falling over themselves to get a new series commissioned after viewing TG last night :)

Shame.  The Tiff & Plato show was the best bit.

 

Just those 2 on a show testing cars together would do.

Perhaps they are now free to take over Top Gear, Tiff and Plato are pretty much my favourite motoring presenters (obviously not including TDK/Daz ;) ).

 

Thing is, it wasn't a new series on ITV4, I watched the first couple and they were repeats of the ones that had already been on Discovery (or whatever channel it was on previously), it may have been new to ITV4 but they certainly weren't new episodes.

Cunning plan, although I'd rate them as my second favourites.

Well, she could make a return to Top Gear.

 

The whole 'Stig' thing is a bit boring these days, perhaps they could ditch Stig and we could get 'The Vik'.

 

That way, we could actually get a tame racing drivers opinion on the car they are setting a lap time in rather than the daft no talking rubbish.

What happened to Sticky Vicky? :P

I did think of calling her 'The Stick' but I didn't think many on here would get it, some of them seem to have led very sheltered lives! ;)

Its a shame it stopping have enjoyed the last few series had a good balance of cars and fun and the team had gelled well over time. 

 

Fingers crossed someone sees a market for them. +++

Yesterday on Twitter Tiff Needell announced Fifth Gear is making a return. Jason Plato is returning too, no word on Vicki or Jonny yet.

Jonny has tweeted that he is involved and it won’t affect his other work.  The pic he tweeted showed VBH so I assume she is back on board.

Excellent. 

Won’t be affecting Plato’s touring car season...he’s hardly been on fire so far.

at least he should be able to get his hands on a decent car now! 

VBH has confirmed she's in - the old gang is back together +++

Yeah Plato tweeted today that he had been at Angelsey today, looking forward to it I rather enjoyed the last few seasons. I hope they don't try to be Top Gear or Grand Poor.
