TV presenter Chris Evans has stepped down from Top Gear. His decision comes after only one season. Chris Evans signed a three-year deal to perform in the show, but he decided to quit after six shows. 

As you already know, Top Gear was rebooted for 2016 with a team of six presenters used to replace the previous Jeremey Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond. 

The announcement come on Twitter. 

"Stepping down from Top Gear. Gave it my best shot but sometimes that’s not enough. The team are beyond brilliant, I wish them all the best", said Evans in his first post. 

"The new series has so far notched up over 30m views in the UK alone and has already been sold to 130 territories worldwide", he added. 

More than that, Chris Evans is also facing a claim of historical sex assault allegations, reported by a UK Sunday newspaper, which the Metropolitan Police is understood to be reviewing. For now, Evans has denied the claim.
