It's hard for the Top Gear team to surprise us with outrageous tales since the show itself could almost be considered behind-the-scenes footage of some other, more traditional program. But producer Andy Wilman reveals 16 TG tidpits in the Telegraph, and it's hard not to be a little surprised at some of them.
Like #8, for example, about trying to get James May to chauffeur a Bengal Tiger in a range Rover Evoque through Death Valley. Or #1, in which he says, "I don't think anyone realises how much work goes into making these three look like f---wits." We'd never have guessed. You'll find the rest of Wilman's words here.
