BLACKPOOL WELCOMES TOP GEAR


Blackpool today gave a big welcome to Top Gear stars Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc.

The pair arrived in the resort on Friday night after completing their first road trip together – a 230 mile drive from London in open top three-wheeled Reliant Robins!

After arriving in the resort, Matt and Chris delighted visitors by stopping off for a fish and chip supper at Harry Ramsden’s on the Promenade.

Today (Saturday) they were due to battle it out in another UK v USA challenge on the Lower Walk close to North Pier.

Before setting off from London, Evans told his Radio 2 audience: “Blackpool is great – we used to go every year for a family holiday.”

The Top Gear episode will be aired in May.
