We revealed last week that The Grand Tour was planning to replace the much maligned ‘Celebrity Brain Crash’ segment with actual celebrities, and now Amazon has gone one step futher an confirmed some of te guests who will be appearing on the show’s second series.
Each week, two celebrites will be pitted against each other in a segment called “Celebrity Face Off’. The challenge will see the two celebrities, who are connected in some unusual way, compete against each other to see who is fastest around the new track in the Halfa Romeo.
So far, the celebrity guest list for the upcoming series includes Luke Evans, Kiefer Sutherland, Hugh Bonneville, Kevin Pietersen, Dominic Cooper, Dynamo, Rory Mcllroy, Michael Ball and Alfie Boe.
The Grand Tour’s first episode is set to feature a battle of the talent show judges, with David ‘The Hoff’ Hasselhoff from America’s Got Talent going up against Ricky Wilson from The Voice UK to see which of them is fastest.
“I’m basically an actor,” the Hoff said. “I’m not really a good driver but I just look good doing it.”
Ricky added: “I’m fiercely competitive and whilst I don’t know the results yet, it’s okay if Hasselhoff beats me because he’s my hero. I really enjoyed it and I hope it looks as good on TV as it felt being in the car.”
