The entire "Top Gear" trio has quit the show
On Friday morning it was announced that James May quits in solidarity with Jeremy Clarkson, who recently was sacked by the BBC. Now Richard Hammond also quits the popular show, writes The Guardian, adding that the latter probably will work with other programs for the BBC.

- There must be three of us. One can not just insert a surrogate Jeremy and expect that it will continue, said May to the newspaper on Friday.

The producer of the show, Andy Wilman, has also resigned. Wilman and the three hosts were all observed at Clarksons home on Thursday.

Hammond said on Twitter: “To be clear amidst all this talk of us ‘quitting’ or not: there’s nothing for me to ‘quit’. Not about to quit my mates anyway.”

In March Jeremy Clarkson was fired from Top Gear, the world's most watched TV program with about 350 million viewers worldwide. Now BBC must find a brand new team of hosts for the program before next season.
