Musician and internet personality Big Narstie, 36, added: “If you like cars, this is the show for you. If you don’t like cars, that’s your business.”

Matthews, 33, joked that Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel was not available so he had to step up, while Grimes, 29, said filming the show was “so different” but “such a great experience”.

Former Coronation Street actor Thomas, 37, said he “loved” taking on Mist during the challenges, adding: “Audiences can expect drifting, doughnuts and general chaos as we go head to head. I can’t wait for everyone to see this brilliant new series.

“Expect big stakes, big energy, big competition and big laughs.”
