Who is Rory Reid?
Rory is a 38-year-old journalist that specialises in technology and cars in his work.
In this field, he had previously worked under CNETs Car Tech channel.
He started working as a tech journalist after completing a computer science degree at the University of North London.
He is the former editor-in-chief of Recombu magazine, but has now stepped down from the role and now works as a brand ambassador.

Where else would I have seen him?
Before moving over to the main event, Rory and his co-star Chris Harris hosted the spin-off show of the main series, called Extra Gear.
However, his most known job is as a YouTuber who contributes to comedic car channel, Fast, Furious and Funny – which has amassed 320,000 subscribers.
He was also the presenter for the short-lived Sky TV show, Gadget Geeks, which ran in 2011. It was not picked up for a second series.
