Chef James Martin might join comedy talk show ‘Top Gear’ as the new host following the departure of Chris Evans.

The 44-year-old TV presenter said he is now one of the bookies' favourites but has not got an official call from the creators yet, reported Contactmusic.

"Apparently I'm the bookies' favourite. I walked past a bookies in Leeds and saw my name on there, and I thought: 'What the hell's going on there?' I was top of the list. But the phone hasn't rung yet," he said.

Martin previously presented a cookery show 'Saturday Kitchen' on BBC One and is currently hosting ‘This Morning’.

While talking about his fondness for cars, Martin said, "I enjoy my cars and I like collecting them, but 'Top Gear' is a really tough show it's a different ball game.
