The Daily Fail has reported recently that Fifth Gear – Five’s motoring show – has been cancelled. Being the Daily Mail we instantly ignored it, but it appears that the rumours are true with confirmation being received from Channel Five execs. Fifth Gear popped up after the original BBC Top Gear series was cancelled back in 2001. Fifth Gear has recently added some nifty and glossy filming techniques with more realistic (and affordable) cars being reviewed. However, I’d have to agree that Tim Shaw has been a little annoying at times and should’ve been given the boot.
It’s a shame, because although it couldn’t quite challenge the hugely explosive Top Gear, it was still a very good watch.
