Chris Evans responds to rumours about Top Gear job

Chris Evans has refuted suggestions that he is being lined up to replace Jeremy Clarkson as a Top Gear presenter saying he "doesn't know if the post is available yet".

Jeremy Clarkson's contract will not be renewed after an "unprovoked physical attack" on a Top Gear producer, the BBC's director general has confirmed.

Speaking after his Radio 2 show, Evans insisted that the current presenters are "the best they could be".
