Jodie Kidd has admitted she quit 'Top Gear' because she didn't want the "commitment."
Jodie Kidd didn't want the "huge commitment" of hosting 'Top Gear'.
The 38-year-old model-and-racing driver is a big fan of cars, but turned down the chance to be one of the presenters on the popular motoring show following the sacking of Jeremy Clarkson and the departure of co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond.
However, she still enjoys watching the programme and thinks Matt LeBlanc and his group of co-hosts are doing a good job.
Asked why she turned the job down, she said: "It would have been such a huge commitment. It just wasn't for me.
"I love the show though, it's getting better and better."
While Jodie has previously taken part in 'Celebrity Masterchef' and 'Strictly Come Dancing', she has no interest in reality shows such as 'Celebrity Big Brother' or 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' because she wouldn't learn anything.
She said: "I feel very lucky that I've been given the opportunity to learn amazing skills.
"I'm A Celebrity...' and 'CBB' aren't for me though. I want to learn something from every project I take on. Sitting in a house or a jungle doesn't appeal."
While Jodie turns 40 next year, she isn't upset about getting older.
She said: "It's a great age. Finally, life is more settled and I feel less insecure as I get older. It's a good excuse for a big party anyway."
And the blonde beauty - who has son Indio, five, with former partner Andrea Vianini and was previously married to David Blakeley for just four months - doesn't think she'll be having any more children.
She told OK! magazine: "Not in the foreseeable future. Indi and I are pretty content. I think I might be a bit old anyway."
