Top Gear’s Paddy McGuinness has warned of continuity errors ahead of the brand new series airing tonight, and it’s all thanks to coronavirus.
The presenter revealed that he, Chris Harris and Freddie Flintoff began filming the 29th season before Covid-19 hit but production soon had to be suspended until lockdown measures were eased.
As a result, Paddy explained the presenters’ appearances might change over the course of an episode due to the nature in which scenes were shot.
‘We started the series before the global pandemic and we finished it just after lockdown,’ Paddy said in a video shared on his Instagram page.
‘In fact, in some of the episodes we get in the car and go up the road and when we get out the other side I’ve got a bleached head, Chris has lost about two stone and Fred’s got the exact same hairstyle as Clare Balding. It’s bonkers.
‘Good luck to the continuity. Anyhow, I can’t wait for you to see it.’
Paddy also lifted the lid on what viewers can expect from episode one of the new series.
‘We’re starting off in my old town in Bolton which I’m very proud of,’ he continued.
‘Watching the episode back is mad because we filmed it before the pandemic and there’s a scene with tonnes of people around the car and we’re all having a sing-song and everything else.
‘You forget what it was like. I can’t wait for it to get back to normal! Anyhow, Top Gear, tonight. Have a good’un.’
We CANNOT wait.
Top Gear airs tonight at 8pm on BBC One.
