It’s not a widely known fact, but the Top Gear office on a balcony suspended right over the top of Britain’s favourite daily evening magazine show on BBC1: The One Show.
This means we get to sing happy birthday to their array of production staff on a regular basis, share lifts with all sorts of random celebrities (it was Ian Hislop yesterday), and also get hot news off the presses about their guests.
Well, this evening one of them doesn’t have far to go. James will be wandering downstairs to the show tonight to talk about his latest piece of moonlighting: a new series of his Man Lab.

James May’s Man Lab starts 8pm on Tuesday 25th October, BBC2, and if you want some tasters, the team also have been uploading some behind-the-scenes clips for you all right here.
