The new 'Top Gear' will start on Sunday, May 29th. And host Chris Evans is preparing for the worst.
In his Mail on Sunday column, Evans joked he was "preparing for imminent career death."
Addressing his critics, who have accused him of being a prima donna and causing discontent among the production team, he wrote: "I have no idea what it is that's driving these malcontents to stoop so low, but I wish them well with their inner demons."
He also claimed that 'The Grand Tour' – the new car show on Amazon from former 'Top Gear' hosts Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond – would give the presenters "ten times the cash but a fraction of the audience."
The first series of 'Top Gear' was originally meant to start on May 22nd, but was beset with production difficulties. It's also been cut from eight episodes to six.
It will air on Netflix in countries around the world. This pits it head to head with arch rival Amazon's 'The Grand Tour', which starts in the autumn.
