Top Gear's Paddy McGuinness Skids Off Road In Lamborghini While Shooting

Paddy McGuinness was fortunate to avoid injury after skidding off the road in a Lamborghini while filming Top Gear.

The presenter and comedian was shooting in North Yorkshire earlier today (Tuesday) when he crashed while driving a 1990 Lamborghini Diablo.

The 46-year-old came off the road at a slight bend, where some oil on the road was subsequently identified. Luckily, he was unhurt in the incident.

A BBC spokesperson told LADbible: "During Top Gear filming in North Yorkshire today presenter Paddy McGuinness's car skidded and left the road, coming to an almost immediate stop. Paddy was quickly taken to the production unit base for medical checks and is unhurt.

"No other vehicles were involved and the police, who had been monitoring filming, were quickly on the scene to assist. Safety on Top Gear is always the production team's priority and the vehicle's speed at the time was within the road's limit of 60mph."
