The 'Top Gear' presenters could come to Netflix. While the show will continue on the BBC, hosts Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond are rumoured to be in talks to bring their unique brand of humour to the streaming service.

The new show is rumoured to be called 'House of Cars'. Though we suspect that's just someone having a laugh.

Previous reports said Clarkson et al were in talks with ITV.

One source told The Mirror a deal with ITV wasn't likely.

"The headache with ITV is going to be the potential conflicts of interest with advertisers," he said.

"What would they do if Jaguar or Volvo had a sponsorship deal but they wanted to berate its latest car?

"Jeremy doesn't like being told what to do. It could cause huge arguments."

'Top Gear' is a huge money-spinner for the BBC, earning it over £50 million a year. It's shown in more than 100 countries around the world.

The BBC iPlayer had its most successful ever month in February of this year.

During that month, three of the top five most-watched shows were episodes of 'Top Gear'.
