Top Gear Faces ANOTHER Setback As Brad Pitt ‘Pulls Out Of Filming’ First Episode
BBC bosses managed to convince Hollywood A-lister Brad Pitt to join them on the opening episode of the new series, hoping that his guest appearance would help to kick-start the newly revamped show with a bang.

According to The Sun, Brad had been lined up to feature in the programme’s ‘Star In A Reasonably Priced Car’ segment, but due to other work commitments and a busy schedule, the star cancelled his appearance on the motoring show.
An insider revealed: “Brad has obviously had filming issues so they’ve had to quickly find another Hollywood name.”
After a few (undoubtedly desperate) phone calls, the team enlisted another actor, Jesse Eisenberg, alongside celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay for the upcoming episode.
