Paddy McGuinness said he needed to “lie down and have a little cry” after he was taken “drifting” in Thailand in the new series of Top Gear.
The much-anticipated new season, which starts on Sunday evening, will see a “pick-up pilgrimage” across the Southeast Asian country involving McGuinness and co-presenters Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris.
Drifting is a technique where the driver intentionally oversteers, with loss of traction, while maintaining control and manoeuvring the car through a corner.
The first episode of the BBC series will see McGuinness with visible sweat patches after he was spun across a car park, prompting the female driver to ask if he was OK.
He said: “No (seat) belt, lots of exposed metal – kids, do not try this at home… I’m just going to find a little spot to lie down and have a little cry. Wowzers.”
It will also see Harris back in…
