Richard Hammond and James May will front a final episode of Top Gear (in its current form) without Jeremy Clarkson.

Confirmed for BBC Two on 28 June at 8pm – 9.15pm, the episode features two films that were shot for the last series.

In the first film, Jeremy, Richard and James immerse themselves in the lifestyle of the traditional classic car enthusiast.
Armed with affordable classics including a Fiat 124 Spyder, a Peugeot 304 Cabriolet and an MGB GT, the trio set off on an adventure that includes brown beer, breakdowns and a hair-raising classic car show.

In the second film, Clarkson, Hammond and May try to become lifestyle leisure enthusiasts with the help of some incredibly cheap lifestyle leisure vehicles. Restricted to a maximum budget of £250, the trio buy three massive mileage SUVs – a Vauxhall Frontera, a Jeep Cherokee and a Mitsubishi Shogun – and embark on a series of action-packed challenges that include battling with the Stig’s ‘Leisure Activity Cousin’ and a race which has terrifying consequences for the loser.

Chris Evans will lead a new team of presenters for the show, when it retuens in the Autumn. Suzi Perry and Dermot o’Leary are among the names rumoured to be joining the show.
