BBC confirms Top Gear series 27 start date!

Top Gear is back on BBC Two and from what we’ve seen, it’s definitely back on track!

The BBC have confirmed episode 1 of series 27 will air on Sunday 16 June, at 8pm on BBC Two. In a clever mood, that’s Father’s Day!


Episode 1 will feature Paddy McGuinness, Freddie Flintoff, and Chris Harris all reliving their first car experiences… in Ethiopia of all places.

Each of the new gang were given a couple of thousand pounds to buy a fine example of their own first car – or at least an example that worked. A bit. They were then told to drive their purchases to the Danakil Depression, the hottest year-round place on Earth.

Find out how they fared on Sunday 16th.
