Tonight sees the long-awaited return of the hugely popular motoring series Top Gear – with the presenting trio of Paddy McGuinness, Freddie Flintoff, and Chris Harris heading off to an exciting location for the season premiere.


The boys will be travelling to Thailand for the season's first international trip, and judging by the trailer it looks like they'll be pushing some old pick-up cars to the limits.

The episode will also include Harris' review of the Rimac Nevera – an electric two-seater vehicle which according to the official BBC synopsis for the episode, "might just be the fastest car on the planet."

Top Gear returned to our screens earlier in 2022 with series 32, as the hosts flew across the pond and trekked across the Everglades in search of motorsport fun.

And there are five more exciting episodes to look forward to between now and the end of the series, with trips to both Germany and France on the cards for the second episode next week.
