Unless you’ve been trapped in a lead-lined shipping container for the last month, you’ll know that Top Gear is returning to your telly screens this weekend with a brand-new, bumper-sized series.
Series 22 kicks off this weekend at 8pm on BBC Two - and simultaneously in many other corners of the globe - and, to whet your arid appetites in preparation, we went behind the scenes at filming for the first episode.
There was some crashing. There were some very blue shoes. There was a great deal of bickering. Business as usual, then, and it’s all captured in this exclusive behind-the-scenes gallery.
To kick us off, here’s Britain’s best-selling male artist of 2014 meeting some bloke called Ed.
