TOP GEAR RECEIVED a mixed reaction from audiences and critics last night.

The long-awaited debut of the revamped show aired on BBC2, with new presenters Chris Evans and Matt Le Blanc front and centre.

About 4.3 million people tuned in – much lower than previous series’ debut episodes.

Former presenter Jeremy Clarkson was sacked from the show last year after allegedly hitting a producer. He and his co-hosts, Richard Hammond and James May, are currently filming a new car show for Amazon Prime.

Some viewers didn’t warm up to Evans and Le Blanc last night, but others are keen to give them a shot.

We want to know: Did you watch Top Gear?

Poll Results:

Yes (9114)
No, but I will (6438)
No and I won't (6267)
I don't care (4273)

What did you think of the show? Let us know in the comments.
