Top Gear has resumed filming in the UK with presenters Paddy McGuinness, Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris in an electric car race around an empty Alton Towers Resort.
A Honda e, Mini Electric and Vauxhall Corsa-e drove around a specially constructed Top Gear maze spanning the theme park.
Presenter, Paddy McGuinness, says: “I’ve always dreamed of having a theme park to myself for the day although these aren’t necessarily the circumstances I’d have chosen. Mustn’t grumble though, it’s great to get the gang back together after lockdown and we’re raring to go – two-metres apart at all times of course!”
Clare Pizey, Executive Producer, added: “We are so pleased to be able to start filming again and a deserted theme park is a great place to start. If what we’ve shot so far is anything to go by, social distancing doesn’t get in the way of Paddy, Freddy and Chris having a brilliant time and causing mayhem along the way.”
