Matt LeBlanc has allegedly told Top Gear producers that he’ll leave the show if Chris Evan stays.
The American actor is currently fronting Top Gear with the English television presenter – but it appears the two have a frosty relationship.
“The big question now is who goes and who stays,” a source told the MailOnline.

According to reports, Matt has become increasingly frustrated with how rude Chris is with staff on set and has told producers that he can no longer work with him.
Matt’s revelation could cause serious problems for the BBC, as filming for the second series is due to start in September.
A BBC spokesman and a spokesman for Chris Evans declined to comment on the reports, but a spokeswoman for Matt denied the claims, telling the MailOnline that there has been ‘no discussion’.
The news comes as it’s been reported that Matt has found love with Top Gear’s executive producer, Aurora Mulligan.
The star was spotted with the 31-year-old at the Hickstead Derby on Saturday.
An onlooker told The Sun, “They were tactile and Matt seemed to be very taken with Aurora. She just kept laughing at all of his jokes.”
A rep for Matt, who divorced model Melissa McKnight in 2006, previously told The Sun that the pair had ‘a strictly work relationship’ – but now it seems to be something more.
“This has become a romance. Matt spends more time with Aurora than anyone else in the crew and there’s definitely a blossoming relationship there,” said a source.
