Watch Matt LeBlanc and James Corden play a game of 'Bottom Gear'


Matt LeBlanc showed he doesn't take himself too seriously as he enjoyed a game of 'Bottom Gear' when he appeared on James Corden's US chat show.

The new co-host of Top Gear - which has faced a barrage of criticism since its revamp - was challenged to a race on tiny, purple children's scooters when he appeared on The Late Late Show.

James announced: "I have challenged Matt to a Top Gear-inspired race using these state-of-the-art children's scooters.

"It's time for Bottom Gear!"

The pair were in stitches as they raced off down a corridor in the battle for first place.

It was a far cry from the high-octane vehicles on Top Gear, as Matt and James tried to coax their little scooters through obstacles such as building blocks, mini ramps and silly string.

James put up a good fight, but was pipped to the post by a laughing Matt.
