Top Gear: Paddy McGuiness 'wants to have a cry' after going 'drifting' in Thailand

Paddy McGuinness said he needed to “lie down and have a little cry” after he was taken “drifting” in Thailand in the new series of Top Gear.The much-anticipated new season, which starts on Sunday evening, will see a “pick-up pilgrimage” across the Southeast Asian country involving McGuinness and co-presenters Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris.Drifting is a technique where the driver intentionally oversteers, with loss of traction, while maintaining control and manoeuvring the car through a corner.The first episode of the BBC series will see McGuinness with visible sweat patches after he was spun across a car park, promoting the female driver to ask if he was OK.The 33rd series of Top Gear returns to BBC One and BBC iPlayer on Sunday at 8pm.Source: PA, BBC One
