50 Cent wants to replace Chris Evans on Top Gear


50 Cent reckons he's the man who can save Top Gear.

The In Da Club rapper is quite the petrolhead and thinks he's got what it takes to help the motoring show bounce back after the Chris Evans era.

The Daily Star quoted him as saying: "I would love to work on Top Gear, I could save that show for sure, but it would cost them.

"There ain't a car I haven't owned over the years, my car collection is as good as anybody's out there."

The BBC two programme faced a barrage of criticism when it returned after its revamp with Chris and Matt LeBlanc at the wheel.

Chris' "shouty" presenting style was slated and the show's ratings plummeted.

Fiddy said the latest series wasn't up to scratch.

"Top Gear was one of the world's iconic shows and it's a shame it came to this," he said.

"The show since the old team left has been unrecognisable and if it don't get back to where it should be soon then it may never recover."
