Paddy McGuinness spoke after surviving an accident that saw him lose control of his supercar while filming Top Gear on Tuesday.

The presenter, 46, had run over a £ 250,000 Lamborghini Diablo in 1990 while filming the BBC show in North Yorkshire when he slipped on petrol at a slight curve on the road.

Paddy went to Instagram later today to reassure fans that he was fine after the incident, although he looked shaken and bruised in the video message.

“I’ll have a cup of tea, a paracetamol and a little cry”: Shaken and bruised Paddy McGuinness described his Top Gear crash in a £ 250,000 Lamborghini supercar on Tuesday

He admitted to fans, “It was a crazy day on Top Gear today, you may have seen that I had a little shunt.

“I was finally able to drive one of my fantastic childhood cars, the Lamborghini Diablo, but it turns out that 30-year-old supercars don’t like torrential rain, who would have thought.

If you’ve ever owned or driven a Diablo, you’ll know it as well as I do, oh my god, she can be a cruel mistress, she can be a cruel mistress this one.

A source speaking to the Sun said he was just “a little shaken” and said, “Paddy is fine but a bit shaken as everyone would when he is scared at high speed.

“It could have been much worse. There are always paramedics and police on a set of Top Gear, so he was in good hands for once but he still smiles.

The other presenters of Paddy, Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris, would not be present on the scene, because the personality of the television would have tested the car alone at the time of its exit.

Hosts Paddy, Freddie and Chris came out of the lock to meet at the Alton Towers Resort theme park in Staffordshire.

Although the park was closed to customers, the presenters took advantage of the empty station and filmed an electric car race.

Once inside the Alton Towers, Paddy found an inventive way to make sure the group kept their distance by carrying a two-meter pole.

Paddy said, “I have always dreamed of having a theme park for me for the day, although that was not necessarily the circumstances that I would have chosen.

“I don’t have to groan however, it’s great to get the gang together after the lockout and we can’t wait to leave – two meters apart anytime of course!” “

Clare Pizey, executive producer of Top Gear, said: “We are thrilled to be able to start shooting again and a deserted theme park is a great place to start.

Zooom! Although the park is closed to customers, the television presenters took advantage of the empty station and filmed an electric car race

“If what we have filmed so far is anything to go by, social distancing does not prevent Paddy, Freddy and Chris from having a brilliant time and causing chaos along the way. “

After the success of the first two series with the new trio, it was announced that the next series of Top Gear would move to BBC One. It will debut on the chain later this year.

Last month, it was reported that Top Gear would use “strictly limited” crews and follow government directives when filming resumed.
