Fans of classic arcade games will have been loving tonight's (March 26) episode of Top Gear, as the presenters got involved in a massive real-life version of Pac-Man – in Renault Twingos, no less.
Rory Reid, Chris Harris and Sabine Schmitz all took to a maze made from shipping containers, taking on the roles of Pac-Man and the game's ghosts to chase each other around the course.
There were even dots and Power Pellets involved for the players to scoop up.

The segment proved pretty popular with some Twitter users:

That arcade sketch was the best thing I've seen #TopGear do in a VERY long time and that includes the Clarkson era- Sean Of The Head (@SeanOfTheHead) March 26, 2017
And it was proved that viewers really do love Sabine being involved in the show:
#TopGear name one thing that's hotter than a woman who knows how to drive fast & can lap the Nurburgring in@ record time?- Colin Clements (@colinclements) March 26, 2017
Make Sabine a full time presenter!! She smashes everything ❤️ #TopGear- Ria (@DurkerDurks) March 26, 2017
Unfortunately, the game didn't win over everybody:
Car Pac-Man nice to see #Topgear catering for the common lowest denominator his show is trash- [RCG] Dan Hartshorn (@ThinkDIGGITYDAN) March 26, 2017
Hmmm.....found that piece a little painful. Pac Man, really? #TopGear- Stuart Horn (@DinosoreUK) March 26, 2017
Tonight's show also featured an appearance from celebrity guest Tinie Tempah, who did a pretty decent lap around the track.
The rapper also revealed that when he was younger, people told him not to go into rap – saying he'd never get on the radio or TV shows.
Luckily he didn't listen to those naysayers and went on to make hits including 'Girls Like' – which host Matt LeBlanc revealed is one of his favourites.
Apparently the Top Gear team listen to the track all the time, so maybe we should get a new theme song for the show?
