It’s here at last! The first trailer for Top Gear’s Big Christmas Patagonian Adventure has landed. What are you waiting for? Turn up your speakers, grab a bag of popcorn – a very small bag of popcorn, ideally – and enjoy the cheekiest of tasters for this festive season’s second-most-anticipated telly event (first, of course, being the nail-biting Downton Abbey Christmas special: we can’t hope to compete with the madcap servant-bashing antics on show there).
As you’re no doubt aware, the Patagonia Special will be a two-part affair, with part one screening on BBC Two and BBC Two HD at 8.30pm on Saturday December 27, with the second installment arriving the following night at 8pm.
The double-header will see Jeremy, James and Richard attempt a 1600-mile epic journey through Patagonia to the most southerly city in the world, ferried by a trio of distinctly ropey sports cars.
It is one monster journey for any Top Gear fan.
