The supercars against the stunning backdrop

IN PICTURES: Top Gear team visit The Lion at Blakey Ridge

The team comprising Chris Harris, Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff were filming for the new series to be shown in 2020.

The Top Gear presenters arrived in some pretty impressive vehicles, which looked fantastic against the backdrop of the North Yorkshire countryside. The Lion at Blakey Ridge, well known for its fabulous food, was happy to play host to the familiar faces. Waitress Shannon Crossland said: "They were here yesterday and came back to finish filming this morning, they were all really nice and friendly, we even made the production crew bacon and sausage sandwiches."
