Guy Martin has told the Belfast Telegraph that he’s unlikely to be doing television for much longer, sparking rumours that the 33-year-old has already ruled himself out of being part of the new Top Gear presenting team on BBC2. He also talked about what could happen to him if he went down the full-time TV route, and didn’t like the prospect of a reality/talent show in the possible pipeline.

Martin said: “I’m happy with the deal I have in place at the minute, where I get to do work on topics that I enjoy. I’m just myself and I won’t do anything that I don’t like. That’s why the camera doesn’t bother me.


“I know they will get bored with me eventually, but then I can just go back to concentrating fully on my job working on trucks. If I’d gone the other route, they’d be looking me to go on Strictly Come Dancing next. And that’s not for me, boy – not for me at all.”

Guy was talking just days after leaving Belfast hospital following his horrific crash at the Dundrod 150 which left him with broken vertebrae, sternum and ribs.
