BBC Top Gear to return for 31st series this weekend

Being able to film oversea for the first time in 18 months gives the programme a bit more to play with in terms of challenges, and there are a whole bunch to continue with.

Tackling the Icelandic wilderness in some British ‘classics’ which are unsuitable for the ground encompasses one of those, whilst the trio also head to Cornwall to reinvent the camping holiday with some new electric cars.

They’ll also be battling it out with some F1 drivers, paying tribute to mythical rider Eddie Kidd OBE with a motorbike stunt spectacular and testing out a few supercars.

Paddy McGuinness spoke ahead of the series set afloat about what works well in presenting with Flintoff, Harris and himself.

He said: “Our chemistry comes naturally. You watch a lot of shows and people are strive for that chemistry. But it either happens or it doesn’t, and from the off it just happened for us without already trying.

“already when we were messing about together before we had already filmed an episode, it was insane. Nothing is off limits with us. We have a great laugh off camera, in addition as on it. I think that’s why it’s been such a success – because people believe us. Long may it continue!”

When does the new series of Top Gear start?

The first episode of the 31st series will air on BBC One at 8pm on Sunday November 14.

It will then be made obtainable online via BBC iPlayer once it has finished.
