Gillian Anderson masters ‘Top Gear lean’ as the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car

Can The Fall actress beat Olly Murs? She certainly looks the part...


Gillian Anderson is this weekend’s Star in a Reasonably Priced Car on Top Gear. That means she gets a few tips from ‘tame racing driver’ The Stig, before attempting to zoom around the track faster than the celebrities who’ve come before her.


Singer Olly Murs topped the board last week – much to his delight – and while Anderson may pretend not to mind about her time, she’s doing the ‘Top Gear lean’. 

If you’re unfamiliar with the Top Gear lean, it’s the point the celebs have a jolly good look at the board to scope out their rivals’ times. 

Lean, lean lean…

Of course this is entirely speculation. Anderson may just be getting comfy. But I bargain she’s a competitive lass and wants a good lap time.

Look, eye of the tiger:

If there were space, they’d probably be bumping helmets together.

Go Anderson!


Gillian Anderson is on Top Gear on Sunday at 8pm on BBC2
