Zara Tindall and husband Mike couldn't look more loved up filming for Top Gear

Zara and Mike Tindall are going head to head in an upcoming episode of Top Gear.

Yes, the loved up couple, who have been married for more than eight years, have been spotted behind the driver’s seat, and it sounds as though things got a bit wild.

While filming for the highly anticipated motoring show, alongside Paddy McGuinness, Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris, the duo whizzed around a racing track at Dunsfold Aerodrome, in Surrey.

The Queen’s granddaughter showed her hubby what she was made of as she climbed into a red Toyota GT86 coupé.

And it seems the former rugby union player had no fear as he sat in the passenger seat besides her.

The challenge, dubbed star in a reasonably priced car, was to see who could get the fastest time around the track, and by the sounds of things, the Olympian gave Mike a run for his money.


When chatting to the Mail Online, a source recalled: ‘She really went for it. She came off the track three or four times.

‘But she wasn’t scared and showed some real bottle. It was very quick for a wet lap.’

After reaching the finish line in their white helmets, the pair were spotted giving each other a kiss after their exhilarating day.

An onlooker said: ‘They are really affectionate for a couple who have been married for a few years.

‘They were always hugging and kissing each other.’

Top Gear is no stranger to taking risks, as Freddie recently revealed he thought he’d killed his co-host Paddy when filming a stunt.


‘It was Chris’s fault. He was egging me on, and I was trying to get around this corner and there was a bit of a bump,’ the 41-year-old explained.

The presenter was the driving the hearse which had his co-stars in the back when it accidentally rolled over.

He told Top Gear magazine: ‘I’ve rolled a car before in Wales and it was the same thing – it started going over and everything seemed to just slow down a little bit.

‘Chris got out really quickly and I was shouting to Paddy in the back, but getting nothing back.’

He added: ‘I had genuine panic for 10 seconds because I couldn’t hear. It’s one thing hurting yourself, but you don’t want to hurt anyone else.’

Top Gear continues Sundays at 8pm on BBC Two.
