Top Gear's new series will include an episode shot in Wigan
Filming part of an episode for the new BBC series, the production team moved into the Millgate multi-storey car park at Grand Arcade.
A spokesperson for APCOA Parking, which operates the car park, said: "As the episode hasn’t yet been released, we’re not allowed to give away too many details, but we can reveal that it involved the three presenters – Paddy McGuinness, Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris – carrying out speed trials in the multi-storey car park. The APCOA team on site had worked with customers to make sure other vehicles were removed from the area first!
"Who knows, after editing it may end up being a bit of a “blink and you miss it” moment, but for some of us in APCOA Parking’s world (and for this Freddie fan in particular!), it was a night out of the ordinary."
The new series of Top Gear airs on BBC One and BBC iPlayer at 8pm on Sunday 4th October.
